Welcome to Framwellgate Sixth Form

FSD is very proud of the sixth form provision, and year on year most students achieve the results they need to secure places at their first choice university. Many students also secure places at Russell Group Universities, which are world-class research intensive institutions delivering an outstanding education beyond school life. FSD has an excellent reputation for preparing students for life after school, not only through their daily education, but through outstanding care, guidance and support.
