W6 is the sixth form college at The Sir Robert Woodard Academy in Lancing, West Sussex. It is located between Brighton and Worthing, at the foot of the South Downs National Park and the glorious British coast. The college is part of the wider Woodard Corporation and has close ties to its sister institutions of Lancing College and Hurstpierpoint College.
As an institution, W6 goes from strength to strength. Each year we have seen an incredible growth in results and destinations. We are pleased to say we have had two students secure places at Oxford.
If you have the dream, we can help you get there.
W6’s main ambition is to be an outstanding place of learning with excellent opportunities, brilliant teaching and amazing resources; all housed in a centre with great facilities.
Students at W6 work hard but also have a great experience in their time here, making lifelong friendships. For us, our inclusive family ethos is critical and allows our students to live and learn in a supportive, friendly environment.
We offer a wide range of programmes, ranging from academic to more career focused vocational courses.
Students at W6 take a varied combination of courses which leads them to university, employment and further education.
Our first step will be to support and guide you in choosing a combination of subjects and specific courses to get you to your end goal. The support does not end there as we will continue to monitor and guide you in your time at W6.
When you join us at W6, you will find that we have a supportive teaching staff and the additional advice you will receive through our careers, information and additional guidance service is second to none.
You will be offered a wide range of new challenges and opportunities to extend and enhance your experience.
We will work together to bridge the gap between sixth form and your future, whether it is a course in higher education or the world of employment. We nurture a work ethic and culture that will enable you to complete your studies successfully and support you in fulfilling your individual potential. Our students have enjoyed a rich and rewarding education at W6, with a full programme of subjects accompanied by a diverse programme of enrichment. We recognise that for you to develop fully as an inquisitive, inspired and well-prepared adult you need to be exposed to a wide range of experiences that will challenge you, question your views, open your mind or simply just make you think. Whatever it is, we invite you to take advantage of everything we have to offer.
Our links with local and national businesses, universities, further educational bodies and other organisations allow us to provide you with an unrivalled programme of “extras” that you will find hard to beat.
At W6 you will have the opportunity to get involved in all elements of college life. It could be as part of the excellent performing arts productions, fitness activities, our excellent basketball academy, sporting fixtures, student leadership or working on air or behind the scenes on our radio station, SRWAir.
It is our vision that every student who joins in year 7 stays with us to complete their post-16 education at W6. We think that after a short conversation with our dynamic students or amazing teachers you will be impressed.
We look forward to welcoming you to W6. The academic achievement of our students is vital. Here at W6 we also firmly believe in developing well-rounded, independent and aspiring young people who will leave us confident and capable of achieving their true potential. The development of leadership skills at a young age is a perfect complement to academic success and provides additional skills and experiences that make students stand out in competitive job and higher education markets.
All students have the opportunity to become a sixth form leader to promote a highly positive academy ethos and culture. We are members of The Worthing and Adur Chamber of Commerce which provides us with access to a wide range of businesses and employers.
Each week students can brush up their employability skills by speaking to business people to help get that edge on the competition. Whatever your ambition, W6 will prepare you for the next steps in your journey.
