Established in 1994, Hamstead Hall Academy Sixth Form is one of the most successful post 16 provisions in Birmingham. The number of students on roll continues to grow each year with an increasing number of students joining us from other schools. Hamstead Hall Academy Sixth Form has a long standing tradition of achieving high quality examination results. In 2018, all students achieved a 100% pass rate in all A Level and Vocational qualifications.

Over half of all students achieved at least one A*- B grade and we are delighted that 100% of students who applied to university secured their first choice with many gaining places at prestigious Russell Group universities. The success of the Sixth Form is a result of extremely hard working students and staff. Everyone is provided with endless opportunities to develop academically, culturally and personally. All students are allocated a personal tutor throughout their time in the Sixth Form offering pastoral care, careers information, support and guidance. At Hamstead Hall Academy our students make outstanding progress, they are aspirational and they go on to achieve wonderful things.

Hello from our Executive Principals

We are delighted that you are considering joining our successful Sixth Form. At Hamstead Hall Academy we believe that our Sixth Form is the stepping stone to success, we firmly believe in combining academic study with extensive opportunities for enrichment.

Our Sixth Form students are enthusiastic, dedicated and resourceful young adults who are excellently prepared and equipped to take their place in society. Obtaining excellent qualifications is fundamental to Sixth Form life, but this is balanced with the aim of developing essential personal qualities through involvement in activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award, peer mentoring and charitable work.

In the last Ofsted Inspection, it was stated that: “Sixth Form learners benefit from a highly effective 16 to 19 study programme” which includes a rich variety of activities to enrich their learning. Students complete work experience, have the option to do international charitable work, visit The Gambia and participate in ‘The Community Apprentice’, which we have won for the last two years.

Students want to come to Hamstead Hall Sixth Form, our outcomes and results continue to improve and more top grades are being achieved. Please take the opportunity to come and meet us and see for yourself our Sixth Form in action.
