Consultation to expand Dixons Sixth Form Academy Read more

The lecture programme

Students attend two short lectures each week.

The first is a general lecture – often topical, political or thought provoking. The other lecture is slightly more formal and the delivery is organised into series of lectures based on an academic discipline so that over the course of 2 years at Sixth Form, all students have been exposed to lectures that build powerful knowledge in domains such as Natural Sciences, Arts, Culture, History, Politics and current affairs, Technology, Social Sciences, Medicine and Psychology.

These lectures don’t just help students prepare for University style teaching and learning, additionally they develop cultural capital through greater academic breadth.
