Welcome to St Robert of Newminster 6th Form. We are a vibrant community that is positive and outward facing, always looking towards what we may achieve. As a Catholic and Christian community, we aim to follow the example of Christ in our daily work and relationships. We are a learning community that recognises that each of us are unique, eternal and full of dignity. Staff and students alike strive to treat one another with tolerance and respect and to be aware of one another’s needs, hopes and aspirations.

We are proud to offer a large number of courses that will challenge students and give them the qualifications to pursue new opportunities in whatever direction they wish to take. Our students go on to be successful at university, apprenticeships and employment. We encourage all our students to contribute to the wider community and as a result they are regarded as leaders by younger pupils in our school. There are many opportunities to take on positions of responsibility and leadership within our school community, including serving on the School Council, being mentors for students in Lower School, leading the extra-curricular clubs and being part of the Prefect system. We are immensely proud of our Sixth Form students.
