At Becket Keys, we understand how daunting the future might seem and how important it is to ensure that you are equipped with the confidence and qualifications to make the most of your opportunities. The Sixth Form at Becket Keys aims to provide you with the support you need to succeed, the expert tuition for you to flourish in your courses and opportunities to make the most of your unique, God-given talents.
We want you to feel that the Becket Keys Sixth Form is the best place for you to become the adult you want to be. As you will know, Becket Keys is a new school and you will be the first of our students to enter the Sixth Form. You therefore have the chance to shape traditions for future generations of students to enjoy. You will be our leaders, the role models for younger students, the lead singers, expert athletes, the star debaters. But you will also need to work hard, both in and, most importantly, outside lessons.
For this reason, we want you to select your courses wisely. Don’t just pick the subjects your friends are opting for; think about the courses or careers you want to pursue next. Would these subjects be suitable? Do you enjoy them? Are you likely to succeed in them? We are here to help you make the right choices and then to support you through Year12 and Year13.
We will have high expectations of all students entering the Sixth Form. We expect you to use your study lessons profitably, to meet deadlines and to contribute to your learning by challenging ideas, being respectful of the views of others, reading relevant material to inform your opinions and persevering when the work is difficult.
We also hope that you will join in school life enthusiastically, making the most of the extra-curricular activities and the exciting trips on offer. I look forward to welcoming you into the Sixth Form in September and wish you every success in your GCSE exams in June.
Mr Andy Scott-Evans
I am looking forward to welcoming you to what will be an exciting and vibrant new Sixth Form. With purpose built buildings and state of the art technology, Becket Keys is the perfect choice when considering where to continue your education.
I am delighted to have been appointed Head of Sixth Form, having been Head of English at Becket Keys for two years. I have taught A Levels for eleven years and have the experience of being a Sixth Form tutor. This included advising students on university courses and careers, as well as assisting with UCAS statements and interview techniques. I am a firm believer in student-led, discussion-based teaching at A Level so that students develop the research, analytical and critical thinking skills that they need at university and beyond.
Away from education, I am a keen – but, in the case of golf, not necessarily successful! – sportsman and will watch anything that involves a ball of some description, either from the stands or the sofa. I also enjoy drama at the theatre, wandering around art galleries and attending concerts. A proud son of Suffolk, I love the great outdoors and am a very willing traveller. Hopefully, for those of you who are lucky enough to have foreign trips as part of your curriculum, we will get the chance to explore some foreign cities together.
Mr Ross Peggs
