New horizons for sixth form pupils in Merton

GCSE results are out, and with sixth form provision opening at Cricket Green School, Bishopsford, Ricards Lodge, Rutlish and Raynes Park high schools within the next week, young people in Merton have more options to consider than ever before. Last week many of Merton’s young people took to the enrolment desks, choosing to continue their post 16 education in the borough.

The new sixth form offer means students can access a wide range of subject areas, excellent teaching and high quality support, and the opportunity to continue their post 16 education in familiar surroundings with pupils and friends they know well.

Councillor Peter Walker, cabinet member for education said, “GCSE results continue to improve year on year in Merton, and there couldn’t be a better time to introduce further sixth form opportunities for our young people in the borough.”

Pupils will start their first year of sixth form within the next week. For more information about Merton’s sixth form offer visit
