Sixth Form

Post-16 education is very special to us. We are a major provider in the area of both A level and vocational alternatives and students regularly join our Sixth Form from other local schools. We pride ourselves on the excellence of the teaching and support they receive, and with some 40 Level 3 courses to choose from, learners have an excellent opportunity to further their studies beyond the age of 16.

Summer 2018 saw our A Level results improve again as standards continue to rise at Prestatyn High School. Higher aspirations and standards are already having an impact on results. The A-level results for the class of 2018 saw the overall pass rate rise by 5%, compared to 2016, to 98%.  We also gained the best Yr12 AS results the school has ever seen, scoring grade three on ALPS. This puts the current Yr13 in the top 25% of all sixth forms.  We wish them all the best as they go into their second year in the sixth form.
