We sincerely hope that you will join us to undertake your Sixth Form studies. We are immensely proud of all that our Sixth Form students achieve and how they conduct themselves both at school and in the wider community. We challenge all of our students to move out of their comfort zone so that, on completion of their post-16 studies, they will have developed a wide ranging skill-set that is vital for success in the modern world. Richard Hale is immensely proud of the traditions and values that are an integral part of the whole school. We look forward to seeing you join us to complete your post-16 studies and are confident that you will fulfil your potential whilst under our care.
