Mark Bedford - Head of the West Coast Sixth Form

I’m delighted the new West Coast Sixth Form will offer students further opportunities to learn, develop their skills and launch careers.

Workington Academy’s sixth form was praised by Ofsted in its 2018 inspection for our strong vision, individualised study programmes and comprehensive focus on personal development. We want to extend that opportunity to the whole of the West Coast and continue to develop our range of course options to meet changing demands.

To add to our academic A Levels and vocational qualifications will be a new range of courses in Applied Business, Health and Social Care, Performing Arts, Applied Science, Sports Science and IT.

These studies will be available from September 2020 and we’ll be busy over the coming months explaining what is now available to students from across West Cumbria.

As part of this, opening evenings will be held at Workington on January 15 and Whitehaven on January 22. But if you’ve got questions now, then there’s no need to wait. You’ll find contact details elsewhere on this website.

We’re very excited about all the options now available for students and thank you for your interest in continuing your education with the new West Coast Sixth Form.
