Welcome to our Virtual Open Information for post-16 applications. This information is designed for Year 11 students and parents and aims to inform you about and guide you in choosing appropriate post-16 options.
We are very sorry that we are unable to welcome you in person, but Year 11 have already had a guidance assembly and we have put together some videos and a number of other resources that we hope you will find informative and useful.
You will hear from our staff, students and members of our Senior Leadership Team.
In addition, if you have further questions or would like to book a meeting with a member of the Sixth Form team or a Careers Advisor,

Understanding more about our school
Hear from our students about their own personal journeys in the Sixth Form.
We are delighted that our consistently excellent Sixth Form A Level results 2017-2019 have been recognised yet again by the nationally recognised ALPS organisation ( A Level Performance System).
"This certificate is testament not just to the hard work and stamina of our students over the past three years, but also the skill and dedication of staff and tireless support from parents. It is because of our consistently excellent Sixth Form results that such high proportions of our students go on to study at 'Top Third' and Russell Group universities."
As the above certificate demonstrates, Hatch End High Sixth Form offers the opportunity to develop a wide range of academic and personal skills within a supportive, structured environment.
Our entry criteria are very inclusive and every year we have significantly more applicants than we have places for. All entrants to our Sixth Form are expected to work hard, commit to our educational expectations and play a full and active role in school life.
Most students choose four ‘AS’ Level subjects in Year 12 and will then concentrate on three ‘A2’ level subjects in Year 13. However we also offer BTEC Nationals (A-level equivalent) in Applied Science, Business Studies, ICT and Performing Arts. More than a third of our sixth form students take a BTEC National Course.
We prepare the overwhelming majority of our Year 13 students to enter Higher Education, but we also provide extensive support to those students who choose to progress on to apprenticeships, college courses or work-based training. In addition to their academic studies, students pursue a PCSHE (Personal,Citizenship,Social,Health,Education) programme that includes career planning, study and work skills development, active citizenship and personal finance.
To enable our students to maximise their chances of success, we have a strong and comprehensive assembly, tutorial and pastoral support programme that allows students access to their tutors for over two hours per fortnight, enabling them to benefit from supplementary guidance to that given by subject staff and the Sixth Form Management Team.
Sixth Form life at Hatch End High School is one of involvement. It is demanding as well as rewarding for students who approach their post-16 studies with the desired attitude and energy. Students’ lives are also enriched by the variety of extra-curricular activities, additional responsibilities and work experiences.
