Friesland School Sixth Form has an excellent reputation for the academic and pastoral support and guidance that is offers its students. Consequently, we have a proud track record of students making very strong progress with us.
We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, alongside providing extensive careers and higher education advice. Students leave Friesland to embark upon the next exciting and productive phase of their lives, whether at Oxbridge, the Russell Group Universities, Art and Drama Schools, Higher Apprenticeships, Employment or Gap Years. We work closely with local universities and employers such as Boots and Rolls Royce.
Friesland Sixth Form provides a diverse range of extended educational and social opportunities; COVID allowing of course, so in previous years this has included an annual American Exchange, together with residential visits to Namibia, Germany and the Norfolk. Theatre trips, sporting fixtures and cultural visits feature, alongside tailor made higher education and employment workshops.
We have a partnership with the Derby County Community Trust, which offers an exciting opportunity to combine education with football.
Since March 2020 we have all faced challenging times and Friesland Sixth Form set and marked students work very regularly and delivered virtual lessons, using the long established Google Classroom, before facilitating a successful return for students in June, where we provided face to face lessons and pastoral support for all students.
We welcome substantial numbers of external students each year and place great emphasis upon our individual support and guidance; including opportunities to sample subjects before making final decisions and spending time at Friesland in July 2021.
We believe that we offer a warm, friendly, purposeful environment in our Sixth Form. Friesland is a welcoming, dynamic and exciting place and we look forward to meeting and potentially working with you all.

Director of Sixth Form
