6th Form – About Us

Welcome to ASA Sixth Form

We are a growing Sixth Form able to offer you a wide range of A-Level and vocational course choices. But unlike other, much larger, colleges where it is much easier to become ‘just’ another student, we remain small enough to give you the personal attention you need to help you with your studies.

Our overall aim is to help you secure the best results possible in whatever subjects you choose; our prospectus details all the course choices and entry requirements. For a copy please email: sixthform@sentamuacademy.org or download here; 6th Form Prospectus

Whether you are staying with us or joining somewhere else; if you want to join a growing and ambitious sixth form because you want the best results possible, then we are keen to hear from you.

Academy Graduates Celebrate at Bishopthorpe Palace
Monday 3rd July 2017

The Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, today welcomed 40 students from the Archbishop Sentamu Academy in Hull to a graduation ceremony at Bishopthorpe Palace to mark and celebrate the achievements they have made.

As part of the Awards Service, the Archbishop formally addressed the students, teachers and parents. He also jointly presented certificates and awards to the students with the Academy Principal, Andrew Chubb.

Mr Chubb said, “At Archbishop Sentamu Academy we aim to provide our young people with a positive vision of all their lives could be.  I am pleased to see the class of 2017 graduating today; not only have they achieved academically, but also are better equipped to go forward as active citizens, able to make a positive contribution to their community and to society at large.  I wish them every success.”

Mrs K Hill, Head of Sixth Form said, “It is a delight to see another group of successful graduates complete their academic journey and progress onto higher studies or employment.  It is my pleasure to have played a small part in this journey; the students have been a true credit to our Sixth Form and our Academy.”

The Archbishop of York said, “It is a joy to welcome students and to hear from them as they look forward to turning towards what the future holds for them.  New chapters are always an opportunity to grow and encounter more of what God creates us to be. My hope and prayer for them is that they will continue their journey through life as people who are always keen to learn, are concerned for those around them and will be the change that they want to see.”

Graduating with a range of A Levels and BTEC Level 3 qualifications, the class of 2017 are going on to further and higher education and apprenticeships.  Degree studies being pursued include Philosophy, American Studies, Business and Marketing, Midwifery, Journalism, Mental Health Nursing and Criminology.

Graduating student, Olivia Hemingway, said, “Graduation is a symbolic event, not just marking the end of our time at the sixth form, but the end of an era, the beginning of the rest of our lives, the mark of our being independent adults, going out into the world and doing the Academy proud. A beautiful ending to a wonderful 7 years. Although the Academy and the people in it will be sorely missed, this school has gone to incredible lengths to shape us into the intelligent, charismatic, responsible young adults we are today, and for that, I am eternally grateful.

Graduating student, Leah Robinson, said, “I have mixed feelings leaving the Sixth Form.  Having spent 7 years at the Academy I will be deeply saddened to leave all of the staff and friends I have made during my time here.  However, I am looking forward to University and making new friends and facing new challenges.”

Graduating student, Joseph Brown, said, “I feel that the courses I have studied during my time in the Sixth Form have enabled me to grow in confidence and develop so many new skills. I have enjoyed the social life in the Sixth Form and met many friends.  The teaching staff have given me their full support and helped me with my ambition of studying Sports Journalism at University.”
