Richmond upon Thames College and Richmond Upon Thames School Announce Exciting Partnership to Launch Exceptional Sixth Form Richmond upon Thames College and the Richmond upon Thames School (RTS), in Twickenham, have announced a groundbreaking proposal to establish an innovative, new Sixth Form Plus.
The partnership will enhance the local educational landscape by offering an unrivalled sixth form experience and support students’ prospects.
The new Sixth Form Plus creates a co-delivered, hybrid teaching model, overseen by a senior post Head of Sixth Form. Staff from the Richmond upon Thames School will have the opportunity to teach A-level courses, enriching their career development while assuring parents of the quality of education provided.
The new Sixth Form Plus will provide students with a unique curriculum encompassing
21 different A-level options, including subjects such as Architecture, Fine Art, Psychology, Music Technology, and Economics. Additionally, state-of-the-art facilities will offer a comprehensive range of vocational courses from Accountancy to Travel and
Tourism, comprising 27 distinct vocational routes, including BTEC Level 1, 2 & 3.
The partnership enables a clear sixth-form progression, and will operate under a formal partnership of co-ownership, supported by an Executive Management Board. This board will be co-chaired by the Richmond upon Thames School Headteacher Kelly Dooley and Richmond College Principal Gavin Hughes. This will ensure effective governance and reporting to the respective governing bodies.
