You will be taught in a modern, well-equipped learning environment, including a professional standard theatre and performing arts rooms. We also have a purpose built common room with a study area to ensure you can complete your work. We have also recently upgraded our Business facilities.
Our Sixth Form students are an important part of our school community and contribute to the life of the school by undertaking voluntary work with younger pupils, putting on performances as part of school assemblies, and acting as role models for younger students to emulate and aspire to. We aim to treat our sixth formers as young adults, with the associated rights and responsibilities that come with this, as part of preparing you for life after Airedale Academy.
If you have any questions, contact us using the form to the right and Mrs E Harrap, our Head of Sixth Form, will be happy to respond. You can also speak to Mrs Harrap by calling 01977 664555.
We try to respond to your enquiry within two working days of it being sent, whether this is by telephone or email.
