Head of Sixth Form's Welcome

Welcome to Sixth Form!

Lytchett Minster is a very successful and popular comprehensive school with a large and thriving sixth form. We have recently been judged to be ‘good’ by OFSTED (Feb 2023).

Our aim at Lytchett is to enable all students (regardless of their social, economic or ethnic background, or their perceived ‘ability’ on entry) to lead successful, responsible, active, happy and fulfilling lives extending into Sixth Form. We do this by providing a combination of level 3 and A Level courses which help to best support the needs and abilities of our students. We also provide guidance for students post school through a tailored tutor programme and various resources such as Unifrog and a dedicated careers adviser.

At Lytchett, we pride ourselves on our high standards. This manifests itself in a positive work ethic, strong moral values, excellent behaviour and a profound respect for the rights and dignity of others. We have an excellent and highly motivated Sixth Form team and teaching staff who are totally committed to their students and are passionate about their subjects. The quality of teaching and learning is demonstrated by our excellent exam results, where our A level and BTEC Level 3 results compare favourably with the best in the country.

The learning environment is nothing short of inspirational and we welcome new students - from within Dorset, nationally and internationally. We would urge you to pay a personal visit to the school and have a tour around our magnificent site. Our buildings provide the perfect blend of the very best in traditional and modern architectural design. Please email us to arrange a visit.
