Applying for Richard Rose Sixth Form

Welcome to Richard Rose Sixth Form, we were recently judged to be a “Good” Sixth Form by Ofsted in 2017.  This has been further supported by the recent results, where RRSF has been placed as one of top performing Sixth Forms in Cumbria.

As a student at RRSF you will be expected to work hard and take more responsibility for your education. As well as this we expect RRSF students to be role models for the younger years and set a good example in both behaviour and attitude.

You will be regarded as a younger adult while studying with us and with this there will be greater freedom than within secondary school. We encourage students to undertake additional activities and responsibilities to broaden their experience and make them a more rounded and conscientious student.

The Sixth Form is made up of students from a range of secondary schools in the local area and we have encouraged applications from students regardless of where they have previously studied.  If you are committed to your education and want to study further we would welcome an application from you.

Everything you need to Enrol at Richard Rose Sixth Form can be found below.

Director of Key Stage 5
