Welcome address by David Irish – Principal

Mr D Irish


Shireland 6th Form is a dynamic and vibrant 6th Form. We have grown and transformed the 6th Form over the past 10 years. The 6th Form represents the final stage of your formal education and as such is the passport to the future.

Therefore, our 6th Form programme supports and develops not only your academic progress but also gives you many opportunities to develop new skills through our Futures, work experience and many other extra-curricular programmes. Our 6th Form will help to develop the levels of independence that you will require when you leave formal education. We will help you decide what the next steps will be whether that be university, apprenticeships or stepping into the world of work.

We will ensure that you engage with industry experts, universities and careers advisors to help you in making important decisions that will shape your future. I very much hope that you decide to apply to Shireland 6th Form and look forward to meeting you all.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our 6th Form website.

Making the right choice for where and what to study after completing your GCSEs is an important one. I hope that these pages offer you an insight into the choices and opportunities that we have at Shireland 6th Form.

My mission is that we offer the best provision in the area and we are the preferred choice for our community. Our 6th Form Experience nurtures, challenges and supports our students in successfully preparing them for life beyond school.

If you want to be part of our next success story, we would love to hear from you!
