Welcome to ‘The Sixth Form’ at Lipson Co-operative Academy

The Sixth Form at Lipson Co-operative Academy is one where learning and achievement are at the core. We are driven by a belief in a common set of values and principles and by a passion for learning held by all.

We provide an excellent array of Academic courses including A-levels, BTECs and OCR National Awards as well as a diverse selection of Vocational courses to suit the needs and interests of all our students.

Students will receive informed and up to date Information, Advice and Guidance during their application process and when considering course options and also throughout their time at Lipson. This advice is done in such a way that even for students who are not sure of their final destinations in life we can help them to keep as many doors open as possible, thus allowing them to progress successfully once completing their studies in The Sixth Form.

We strive to constantly enhance the quality of teaching and learning within our Sixth Form and all students are offered high levels of academic and pastoral support throughout their studies leading to the successes our students achieve.

Partnership for Learning and Education - the PLE consists of four secondary schools (Lipson Co-operative Academy, Sir John Hunt Community Sports College, All Saints Academy and Tor Bridge High) It is the largest Educational consortium in Plymouth and is becoming the largest sixth form provision in the city which offers a broad and diverse range of courses to suit students of all abilities in order to prepare them for future progression to university, apprenticeships and employment.
