Drapers’ Academy Sixth Form opened in 2012 to provide outstanding teaching and opportunities for all our students.
Our first set of students completed their A Level results in the summer of 2014. We are delighted to see 82% of these students continue on to higher education studying both undergraduate degrees and art foundation courses. The Sixth Form has continued to grow and in January 2014 we received a record number of applications that exceeded our places available.
The excellent teaching and learning environment within the Academy are the key ingredients of our success. We provide 1:1 tutorial sessions, dedicated teachers and pastoral support to guide our students through the transition period from GCSE to A Level and beyond.
Alongside academic success we also encourage our students to think about how they can enhance their development, as they become a young adult, through engaging in our Sixth Form enrichment activities. Our students have the opportunity to complete the Duke of Edinburgh Award, represent the Sixth Form in sporting events and take part in the film club.
As a part of the Drapers’ Multi-Academy Trust we receive an incredible amount of support from our sponsors, The Drapers’ Company and Queen Mary University of London. We work together to provide academic excellence in a supportive environment. With these sponsors, a guaranteed place is available to all Drapers’ Academy students at Queen Mary University of London provided they achieve the entry requirements.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for considering Drapers’ Academy and if you would like any further information on our Sixth Form please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.

Director of Sixth Form
