Our Sixth form students are ambassadors for our school and we have the highest expectations regarding their conduct and behaviour in the academy at all times. Our Sixth Form is thriving and we are very supportive of our students. As a result, our Sixth Form students excel in their studies and play an active role in many areas of extra-curricular life in the school. Underpinning all of this, however, is our insistence on the highest standards in relation to study and behaviour in the academy.
Our Code of Conduct for Sixth Form students sets out our expectations regarding attendance, behaviour, attitudes to learning and many other aspects of Sixth Form life at The Crest Academy and can be found at the bottom of this page.
