Welcome to IC6
Welcome to the Islington Sixth Form Consortium (IC6) website
Whether you have decided to apply to IC6 or you are still considering which post-16 education provision best suits your needs I’d like to welcome you to IC6, one of the most successful sixth forms in London. The IC6 website aims to provide you with a range of information and hopefully answer some of the questions you will have about IC6 as a new or prospective student.
IC6 was established in 2004 and is the joint sixth forms of Central Foundation Boys’ School, Highbury Grove School, Highbury Fields School and St Aloysius’ College. We provide outstanding sixth form education in a friendly, supportive and productive learning environment.
Approaching 700 students enrolled at IC6 in September 2012. A large number of our students come from outside the four partner schools that make up IC6.
We are exceptionally proud of our achievements:
• Outstanding’ Ofsted, 2010, 2011 & 2012
• 99% pass rate for last 3 years
• Highest achievement in Islington
• Pass rate well above national average
• In 2011 we achieved almost twice the national state average for A* grades at A-level
• Graded ‘outstanding’ for value added by Alps and top 10% nationally for the last three years
• Top 5% nationally for Contextualised Value Added (CVA)
In 2010-11 IC6 was inspected by Ofsted twice and received one of only 13 ‘outstanding’ grades nationally for sixth forms. IC6 was described by Ofsted as having many ‘outstanding features’; the systems in place for monitoring and supporting students across IC6 were praised as ‘excellent’ and the curriculum and student achievement were highlighted as ‘outstanding’. Our most recent Ofsted inspection in the summer of 2012 again saw IC6 receive ‘outstanding’ under the new tougher Ofsted framework.
As you take the next crucial steps in your learning journey I trust that you will find the website helpful. Moreover, I hope you will decide to apply to IC6 and are successful in your application and I will look forward to sharing in your development in the years ahead.
