the sixth form
The Sixth Form at Malton School offers students the opportunity to continue their studies in the local community. Malton Sixth Form extends a warm welcome to students, not only from Malton School but also from Ryedale School and other schools in the area. Every year we have some students moving into the area for the first time or joining us in the Sixth Form from the private sector having seen the high quality of our outcomes. We pride ourselves in making the transition from Year 11 to Sixth Form as smooth as possible, and integrating students from Malton and other schools into one student body, where everyone feels valued and everyone respects each other.
To aid integration the year will start with an exciting residential induction course which allows students to meet informally, whilst tackling a challenging programme of teamwork activities based on mental and physical problem-solving. Activities include navigation, kayaking and abseiling.
We are committed to the provision of high quality teaching, varied learning and stimulating extra-curricular activities which will contribute to your continuing education and provide the platform for examination success. Guidance will be available to help you in your choice of career or higher education course.
Whatever your background joining the Sixth Form, experience shows that Malton School will enable you to continue your education in a happy, caring and supportive environment.
