    WELCOME TO ST BERNARD'S SIXTH FORM

     

    I would like to welcome you to this online guide to St Bernard’s Sixth Form, a popular, highly successful Sixth Form open to students from all faiths, both boys and girls.  We have assembled a number of resources in this Sixth Form area of our website to give you a sense of what St Bernard's Sixth Form is like.  Although it is impossible to virtually recreate the unique communal and academic atmosphere which makes St Bernard's so special, we hope the information given here will help you in your choice of Sixth Form.

    We take great pride in the care taken with each individual student and we are intensely proud of all their achievements.  They gain excellent examination results and they grow to become confident, articulate and thoughtful young people.  The school has a skilled and dedicated staff, good facilities and a wide and varied programme of opportunities for all students.  Please take a look at our course guide for full details.

    Ours is a community where we aim to live out our Mission Statement, “Love one another as I have loved you”, in our school and in the parish communities to which we belong.  This aspiration is supported by our pastoral system, which provides a strong base for students' academic and personal development and we enjoy a close, positive relationship with parents.  The result is a very special ethos, with a combination of faith, purpose and enjoyment, as staff and students share in learning at St Bernard’s.

    We hope you enjoy reading and looking at the information below.  Please do not hesitate to contact us, via office@stbernards.southend.sch.uk if you need any further information.  We look forward to welcoming you as visitors to our school site in the near future.

    Mr A Sharpe, Head Teacher

    "St Bernard's is a unique school which offers subjects that have indefinitely carved my education and who I am. It has led me onto a path that no other school would be able to offer. The support from my teachers combined with the school's encouraging atmosphere gives me motivation to work hard and strive for the best every day in everything I do".
