“We are a high-achieving sixth form, giving our students an excellent springboard to success. We educate the whole student, providing all with excellent teaching and opportunities for growth and personal development. We are recognised by Ofsted as an outstanding sixth form. 

We are relatively small in size, with just over 2000 students and approximately 200 staff. This means that we are a close and caring community. We serve the whole Fylde Coast area, which includes Poulton-le-Fylde and Lytham St Annes, as well as Blackpool and the surrounding towns and villages. 

Blackpool Sixth is a friendly, positive and supportive place to work and is rated Grade One: Outstanding by Ofsted (2009). In 2009, we became one of the first organisations in the country to be awarded the Investors in People Gold Award. Staff are committed to the needs and aspirations of our students and supported by an extensive programme of staff development."

Nicola Craven, Principal


Staff are highly committed to the needs and aspirations of our students and the continued growth in student numbers and planned curriculum developments has enabled the sixth form to invest in new staff and new buildings. 

All new staff are offered a thorough induction program and are allocated a mentor in their probationary period, who will be there to offer support and guidance in your new role.

It's not just teachers that we develop, both teaching and support staff are involved in an annual programme of Learning and Development (L&D), supported by individual performance development reviews and training and development plans.
