Pate’s Sixth Form is a vibrant and dynamic place to study. 

We have over 480 students in total, all working from a purpose-built Study Centre. Independent study and personal responsibility are encouraged; qualities which help prepare our students for life beyond school. 

We pride ourselves in the extensive range of leadership opportunities and extra-curricular activities that our students can engage in as they look to develop themselves and make a difference in the school community and beyond.
