From the Sharnbrook Academy
The sixth-form pupils at Sharnbrook are the most significant individuals!
Of course, the first step in accomplishing that aim is selecting the appropriate courses to enrol in.
At Sharnbrook, we take great effort to mentor and encourage each applicant as they choose their course of study.
Sharnbrook sixth form is a friendly place, as so many of our "new" pupils are happy to note.
Another important element in setting up our pupils for success is the correct environment.
We know that sixth form students at Sharnbrook will receive all the support, direction, and encouragement they need to succeed because we think they are choosing to do their very best.

It is a great school. The teachers are amazing and teach very well. The only problem is, is the food. It is quite expensive and you don’t get a lot for your money.
