    Find out about life in the Sixth Form from the students themselves
    here's a video made by our current Sixth Form students -

    We offer a broad curriculum of A Level subjects which means that we are able to provide an educational pathway that is tailored to every student's individual needs. To help you decide what subjects to study please click here to find out about our courses.

    We welcome students from many other schools across the Wirral, Chester and North Wales and we value their fresh ideas, energy and the considerable contribution that they make to the academic life of the school. Usually around fifty to a hundred students join Calday students in the Sixth Form. Female students should not feel isolated as there are generally around one hundred female students in the Sixth Form as a whole.Having joined the Sixth Form, students are assigned a form group and remain in this group, with the same form tutor, for the two years of their Sixth Form courses. This provides a supportive atmosphere in which our students feel that they belong. New Sixth Form students will also become members of one of the three school Houses and will have the chance to represent their House in sports, music and drama.

    Sixth Form life revolves around the Sixth Form Centre; two quiet study areas; a specialist Sixth Form computer room; the Learning Resource Centre, the Calday Business Centre as well as the Common Room. Technology is a fast developing area and students can bring their own device to school in addition to using the school computers.

    At lunchtime Sixth Form students are allowed to leave the school site; while others enjoy TV and music in the Sixth Form Centre or study in the private study areas, computer room and Learning Resource Centre. At break and lunchtime a popular rendezvous for Sixth Form students is the café in the Common Room where students can obtain drinks and snacks.

    Careers support and advice is a key element at Calday. With a well established UCAS programme we are highly skilled at helping students secure places at outstanding institutions. Equally our careers advice ensures that students receive first class guidance.

    In addition to fulfilling academic potential, students develop the key skills essential for success in and beyond school. Sixth Form students have the chance to develop communication, teamwork, initiative and independence skills as they are the driving force behind the House system. Calday Sixth Form students take on many positions of responsibility such as House Captains, Prefects, Senior Prefects and Head Boy or Head Girl.
