Bishop Vaughan runs an 'open access' sixth form, providing a warm welcome to all year 11 pupils from across Swansea. We pride ourselves on delivering a rich blend of academic and vocational subjects in a supportive school environment.


Thank you for your interest in Bishop Vaughan Sixth Form. We hope that you will be excited by what is available as outlined in this prospectus. As you will see, we have a well-developed curriculum with a wide range of academic and vocational subjects.

With a Sixth Form of over 200 we are able to organise learning in average class sizes of 15 students, which allows for greater individual guidance and direction. At Bishop Vaughan, we have high expectations of all of our learners and aim for the highest standards possible. We are convinced that this is best achieved in an environment where students feel confident, secure and happy.

Most of our Sixth Form students are not new to our school, having chosen to continue their studies in an environment in which they are well known and valued. Students who come from other schools experience a warm welcome and quickly find themselves at home here. All students are expected to work hard and to take full advantage of the expertise and commitment of our staff. They are encouraged to make the most of the many and varied extracurricular activities we are proud to offer.

The pastoral and academic support provided for all learners is excellent. This combined with an Enrichment Program and a wide range of extra-curricular and social events makes Bishop Vaughan an exciting and rewarding environment in which to continue your studies. Our aim is to encourage and support every learner to achieve their full potential. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Bishop Vaughan Sixth Form.
