Sixth Form

Rivington and Blackrod High School Sixth Form is a well-established school sixth form of around 320 students which is situated in Horwich. It has been identified as being among the best 20% of school sixth forms and colleges nationally.  The majority of our students go to university, having studied AS / A levels or BTECs chosen from a range of level 3 courses.

Rivington prides itself on its academic success. Our A Level and BTEC students achieve grades above the national norm - in 2016, 62.3% of our students achieved grades at A*, A or B equivalent.  This was as a result of their commitment and hard work; the support they receive from home and the expertise, dedication and inspiration of Rivington staff who nurture each student so that he or she can fulfill his or her academic and personal potential.

Most subjects are based in the Sixth Form Centre, which also includes study areas and work pods, the common room and a snack bar serving hot and cold meals throughout the day.

The Sixth Form is open to all students, not only from the school itself, but also from schools across Bolton. Our reputation for high academic standards and excellent support make us a popular choice for students seeking good quality teaching in small groups. We offer a high level of support for all students with a personal tutor and excellent facilities for independent study along with a very wide range of enrichment activities.

As a student you will find that Rivington is a happy and inclusive sixth form, a place where students work hard and where they also find friendship, enrichment and support.  We are confident that each student who comes to us will be well prepared for the exciting challenges of the 21st Century.
