A Sixth Form for Marshalls Park Academy

The Proposal

We are putting forward a proposal to the Department for Education to open a new sixth form at Marshalls Park Academy. We believe this proposal would be an exciting development for Marshalls Park and South West Essex Community Education Trust (SWECET), placing post-16 education at the heart of our community.

The new Sixth Form would offer all the support our students know and love, but in a more adult environment. Students could expect a smooth transition to their post-16 education with a broad range of courses to suit their needs, housed in the building they know, and led by members of staff who understand their individual needs.

We have established excellent teaching and learning standards across the academy over the last few years and we could not be prouder of our students’ Key Stage 4 results. We believe having a Sixth Form will enable us to continue enhancing these results and building on our success.

We would like to hear your views on the proposal and invite you to leave your comments on our consultation survey by Wednesday 22nd June 2022 Your comments will be shared with the Department for Education and will play a key role in their decision-making about the proposal.
