Ysgol Maesydderwen’s Sixth Form is a dynamic and vibrant part of the school community offering a wealth of new opportunities for learners.  As a school which lives by its inclusive ethos, our Sixth Form welcomes all those who demonstrate a commitment to their own development and success.  We support, develop and inspire young minds in an environment where they have access to excellent resources and high quality teaching.

Working in partnership with other schools across south Powys and using the innovative E-sgol video remote learning system, we offer a wide range of A Level and vocational courses.  Whether the ambition is for a place at Oxbridge, a Russell Group university, an apprenticeship or a higher vocational pathway; Ysgol Maesydderwen can provide the right preparation and guidance.  We are proud of the successes of our students when they leave Ysgol Maesydderwen and of the high standards they achieve.

The Sixth Form programme includes dedicated careers advice, support via the SEREN Network for more able students, workshops with lecturers, visits to universities, a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and additional support in the lead up to examinations.  In addition, students receive practical and personalised support with their applications to university, securing valuable apprenticeships or employment in what is a highly competitive market.

There are also many opportunities for Sixth Form students to develop their leadership skills by taking on roles such as Head Boy / Girl, Senior Prefects and Student Mentors.  The Sixth Form has a designated common room with areas to study quietly and access to IT facilities.  Our Sixth Form students are excellent aspirational role models for younger pupils and great ambassadors for our school.
