Discover yourself, Define your future
Head of College WelcomeChoosing where and what to study post 16 is both important and exciting. It is a choice that will not only shape the next two years but could influence the decisions you make later in life.
At Sigma Sixth you will have a chance to study the subjects that you are passionate about, whilst developing as a person and deciding your future pathway. You’ll discover new opportunities, new responsibilities and new friendships. You will develop your independence and learn who you really are. Our students are individuals with a range of aspirations but all use their time here to nurture their potential and move closer to their ambitions.
Some of our students aspire to study sciences or law and apply to Russell Group universities. Others want to continue their studies at specialist universities for arts, music or technology. Some will be considering the world of work, or possibly a gap year before taking a degree course. Whatever path you chose, we will be there to help and guide you.
The success of our students and our high-quality provision and support has made us an increasingly popular choice for students. I hope that you too will be excited by what you learn about us and complete an application to join our community.

Mock Exam Week
Monday 30th November - Friday 4th December
From Monday 30th November until Friday 4th December, you will sit a series of mock exams during your normal lesson time.
These mocks are important as they will inform your predicted grades and will be used as a key source of evidence should we have to provide Centre Assessed Grades.
Your subject teachers will give you guidance on what to revise.
On this webpage are a collection of resources to help with revision techniques and strategies.
The detailed schedule for the week will be available here once finalised.
A simple diagram with branches of information about a certain topic can be a highly effective way of organising your knowledge. This can also help you draw links between topics/pieces of knowledge. Some free tools to help you mindmap can be found here:

- – https://docs.google.com/drawings/
- – A TED Talk on Mind mapping
Flash cards are a very effective way of revising as they force you to condense down whole topics into small, bitesize chunks. This is good because it helps you to select key information you have learnt and then create a small card that can be quickly revised before an exam. If you would like some card to make your own flash cards, see Mr Crabb.

Quizzing or self testing can add a healthy element of competition to your revision. Getting a family member or friend (over video or phone call!) to test you on your revision topics will help test your powers of recall. This also engages the part of your brain that stores long term memory. The more regularly this part of your brain is worked, the stronger it becomes.
