Starting Sixth Form is a significant milestone in the life of any student and making the decision about where to study is sure to evoke an equal mix of excitement and trepidation. Here at DSTC6th we strive to make the transition process as smooth as possible. Whether joining our Sixth Form community as a new or existing student, we are committed to ensuring that you receive the support and guidance you need to realise your full potential and achieve your ambitions. Our aim is that you leave DSTC6th fully prepared for the next exciting steps on your chosen career path.

At DSTC6th we have a wealth of experience which allows us to offer the highest quality provision in a stimulating and supportive learning environment. We are becoming a popular choice, not only for our students but for students from other schools as well.

Our curriculum offers a diverse learning programme  with a wide variety of subjects, which include both traditional and vocational courses. From A Levels and National Extended Certificates and Diplomas, DSTC6th offers a full range of courses to cater for all interests, abilities and ambitions.

In today’s competitive job market, we believe it is important that our students seize every opportunity to develop their knowledge and skills beyond the classroom. In addition to developing your intellectual abilities, there is scope for you to develop other valuable skills and qualities, such as resilience, confidence, teamwork and independence. All students are given the opportunity to follow our enrichment programme, which includes certified courses in Extended Project as well as accredited Student Leadership Courses. We also offer a wide range of opportunities to develop employability skills and contribute to the wider school community.

We pride ourselves in offering students a high level of support in planning for their future. Our students benefit enormously from clear, comprehensive and impartial careers advice both from our dedicated Sixth Form Tutor Team and external advisors from Connexions, The University of Kent and Kent County Council. This year we saw with 92% of students achieving their first or second choice of university and many others progressing onto exciting career and apprenticeship pathways.
