Brigg Sixth Form

Raising of the Participation Age

Since the Raising of the participation age came into effect in 2013, all students are required to continue their studies until their 18th birthday.  This can include Sixth Form, Further Education College, Apprenticeships or Traineeships. Students will be supported in their decision making through our Careers Programme detailed on the careers section of our website. 

Sixth Form

As a student in a Delta Academy, we would love for you to continue your studies in our Sixth Form Centre. Our Sixth Form offer a range of Academic, Applied and Technical Programmes of Study and offer a mature, supported and bespoke programme tailored to your individual needs. The Vale Academy is part of the Brigg Sixth Form, a partnership with Sir John Nelthorpe School. For more information about the Sixth Form, please click here.

The Vale Academy in partnership with Hull Trinity House Academy, as part of our Programme of Studies, offer students in the Humber area the opportunity to study Nautical or Maritime studies.  This bespoke pathway has been developed by Delta Academies Trust, local Maritime Employers and professional qualifications to ensure pathways into the industry, at both Apprenticeship and University level.  For more information, please click here.


Brigg 6th form is not just about being inspired by excellent teaching and achieving academic success. We offer a range of enrichment opportunities designed to develop you as an individual.

There is a range of sporting activities that you can be involved in, including badminton, football, netball and hockey. We also offer many music activities, including wind band, brass band, chamber choir, string ensemble and taiko team.

Our students, led by the social committee, organise our annual TWAG week to raise money for a charity of the students’ choice. They also support Children in Need and various local charities such as The Forge Project and planting crocus to support our local Rotary Club ‘banish polio’ event.

There are many trips and visits throughout the year, including university visits, careers fairs, theatre trips as well as social activities.


Students are offered extensive support outside the classroom through daily personal tutor sessions to monitor and discuss academic performance and progress throughout their time at sixth form.

Personal tutors also provide students with one-to-one support and expert guidance on the entire university, higher apprenticeship and employment process. All our students gained access to their first choice university in 2020.
