The school operates Leek Federation Sixth Form jointly with Westwood College. The Sixth Form has two campuses, the Leek High campus and the Westwood campus. Both offer plenty of space and excellent facilities. Alongside superb sporting facilities, the Leek High campus boasts extensive grounds, a dedicated Sixth Form Study Centre with computer facilities and a Sixth Form Common Room.

The Sixth Form is large enough to offer a full range of courses, yet still small enough to provide the care, personalised advice and tutorial support you need to be sure of success. We take pride in recognising and maximising the huge potential in our young people, helping them to become everything they can be. Our recipe for success is simple: the highest expectations of each member of the Sixth Form and the highest quality teaching, alongside outstanding personalised care, guidance and tutorial support all within in a beautiful environment where students thrive.

Our Sixth Form offers a successful route to Higher Education, the future pathway followed by the majority of our students. With our support and guidance, students identify individual future study programmes that are both appealing and appropriate for their long term aspirations. In Sciences, Arts and Humanities, our students progress to a vast array of Higher Education courses at a wide range of universities, which have recently included: Natural Sciences at Cambridge; Photography at Falmouth; Law at Aberdeen; Chemical Engineering at Nottingham; Classical Literature and English at Leeds; Medicine at Birmingham; Sports Coaching and Education at Gloucester; Drama and Creative Writing at Royal Holloway; History at Kings College; Music at Goldsmiths; Nursing at Liverpool; Economics and Mathematics at Sheffield; Sociology at Sussex; and Multimedia Journalism at Bournemouth; Ethics and Politics at Princeton.
