20 Mar Top 5 reasons why The VI Form Academy is leading the way for studies in the UK
We really do have a unique set up for success at the The VI Form Academy. This summer, we celebrated our fifth consecutive year of a 100% pass rate for A-Level subjects and once again topped the tables for progress in Cornwall.
We’re incredibly proud of all our staff and students who make such fantastic successes happen and are big believers that your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow. So, if you’re still deciding which VI Form is right for you, here are the top 5 reasons why your future starts at The VI Form Academy.
1. In top 10% of all VI Form provisions in the UK
In recent government analysis, The VI Form Academy was recognised as one of the top VI Form provisions across the entire country – that means we’re consistently performing amongst the top 10% of schools in the UK.
2. Track record of students going on to Russell Group Universities
Is it your dream to study at Oxford or Cambridge? We have a track record of lining gifted students up with their dream placements at top Russell Group universities through our Oxbridge Pathway – and we have extensive Medical and Veterinary Pathways which prepare students thoroughly to apply for these highly competitive fields.
Alongside our students, we work very hard to ensure that all those who wish to go on to progress to university level courses have every possible chance of doing so. This happens through input from universities about courses, funding and finance, as well as a huge amount of internal support and guidance; from the university application process to the quality of teaching and learning provision here at The VI Form Academy.
3. Also in top 10% of UK for progress
Once again, we topped tables across the UK for student progress across Cornwall’s state schools and colleges, as well as continuing to rank amongst the top 10% of schools in the UK in the 2019 A-Level Performance Tables. We also recorded the highest average grade amongst state A-level providers in Cornwall of B- and ‘above average’ attainment levels.
This accomplishment means that VI Form Academy students have consecutively placed in the top 10% of the entire country for progress for the past three years – an incredible achievement!
4. Our diverse range of courses
We offer no less than 27 courses – one of the widest ranges around and all of which are taught by subject specialists. From dance and drama to maths and science, as well as Advanced A-Levels, OCR Nationals and BTEC Level 3 Qualifications; whatever form your studies take, you’ll find excellence here.
5. Unrivalled Maths and Science provisions through CSMS
Did you know that Cornwall’s Number 1 STEM A-Level provider is actually part of The VI Form Academy? Cornwall School of Maths and Science (CSMS) is situated on our Nexus campus, so you can compliment your VI Form studies with the top maths and science provision in the county – and vice versa.
Plus, we individually tailor each programme for each student through our strong links with academic and industry partners, meaning you get the very best of all possible worlds.
