The Best of Hartlepool Awards.

“It takes such dedication and motivation to attain the grades required to progress to university, apprenticeships and employment. We are really proud of the achievements of our students.”

“We are therefore delighted to be celebrating the remarkable success of young people in Hartlepool.”

Hartlepool Sixth Form provides high quality personalised educational opportunities for around 700 students aged 16 to 19. The sixth form provides a wide range of full-time further education across both academic and professional and technical pathways.

The sixth form aims to develop and positively shape lives, communities and the economy through teaching, learning and development of skills. It has excellent facilities and resources to ensure students are taught in state-of-the-art learning environments, and recently launched a brand new Digital Academy and Health Hub.

This summer, the sixth form achieved 100% pass rate in 28 A-Level subjects or equivalent with an impressive 75% of A-Level students gaining grades A*-C.

Our thanks go to the sponsors who helped to make the awards possible. They are Utility Alliance, Stagecoach North East, Specsavers, English Martyrs, Hartlepool Sixth Form and Northern School of Arts.

The awards evening will be held at Hardwick Hall on Wednesday, December 4 and awards will be handed out in categories which include Volunteer of the Year, Community Group, Sports Team, Fundraiser of the Year, Carer of the Year and Student of the Year.
