Neatherd Sixth Form - Information for Y11-Y13

Dear Parents, Carers, Year 12 students, Year 13 students and prospective Sixth Form students in Year 11,

The Governors at Neatherd High School have decided to establish their own Sixth Form at the current College site. This will open in September 2016 and the change will affect Year 12 students currently on roll as well as prospective students. It will not in any way affect students who are now in Year 13.

We shall be withdrawing from the collaboration with Northgate High School. However, we shall ensure that all the Post-16 course options for the current Year 12 and prospective students will continue to be offered in the next academic year.

This change will cause minimal disruption for students and will offer current and future students both an outstanding educational experience and high academic achievement.

You will find attached a list of Frequently Asked Questions which we shall update on the School website. Should you wish to add any further questions, please email these to

Year 11 and 12 Students have been informed in assemblies today. We are also holding a Question and Answer session for parents, on Tuesday 1st March at 7pm, in the canteen at Neatherd. You can register to attend through this link (

Yours sincerely,

Gill Spillman

Chair of Governors
