Sixth Form

We have a large and thriving Sixth Form at the school with an excellent record of academic success as well as outstanding achievements in sports, the arts and enterprise. The Sixth Form provides not just a wide range of academic courses but many social, cultural and sporting activities. There are also opportunities for you to contribute to the school and wider community with various voluntary activities and leadership roles.

Pastoral support is something we pride ourselves on and we are very lucky to have our own dedicated Pastoral Support Officer who works within the Sixth Form in addition to our experienced Tutor Teams who work closely alongside the Head and Deputy Head of Sixth Form.

Our students go on to study at top universities, take up higher level apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships with a range of prestigious employers such as Hanson, Bentley and BAE. Whatever your passions and future aspirations, we are here to help you achieve your goals.

Transport Arrangements for Post-16 Students

Transport arrangements are sourced and arranged by Westmorland and Furness Council. Students in post-16 education no longer have an entitlement to a seat on transport provided by the Council, but they can apply for a seat where the Council has calculated that there are available seats. This is known as the spare capacity seat scheme.

The administration of this policy is reviewed on an annual basis, and we will advise you should it change.

The spare capacity scheme only operates on existing school transport provision for Queen Elizabeth Grammar School.

Westmorland and Furness Council asks the school to indicate to them the spare seat requests from our post 16 students, this usually happens in mid-May.

The school will send a letter and application form to post-16 applicants and current Year 12 students and we indicate a date when we must have the application forms back, so that we can pass our information to the council.

An application does not guarantee that a seat is available.

We do not request any payment with the application.

You can apply directly to the Council for a free seat on low-income grounds or if the student has Special Educational Needs. Please visit the County Council website for further information.

The school does not have any influence over the allocation of seats.

The school will notify you if you have or have not been allocated a spare seat.  This could be towards the end of August/beginning of September; we will request payment at this stage.  We offer a three term instalment plan.

On receipt of payment, the pass will be handed to the student via school reception.

You will need to consider sourcing alternative transport arrangements in the event that a spare seat is not available.
