The sixth form at Bradon Forest runs in conjunction with Malmesbury School. Students attend lessons at Bradon Forest once a week and for the rest of the time they study at Malmesbury. Students experience high quality lessons at both sites and are also able to take advantage of familiar tutorial support at Bradon Forest. Moreover, students also benefit from the opportunity to broaden their peer learning groups and social circles at Malmesbury.

Sixth form students enjoy the familiarity of being at Bradon Forest one day a week yet having their own dedicated space on site. Watch this video of Bradon Forest and Malmesbury students talking about the benefits of staying on at sixth form.

Over half of the students who go to Malmesbury sixth form go on to Oxbridge or Russell Group universities, which is way above the national average and higher than local colleges. There is a lot of support with the university application process. Watch this video of previous Malmesbury students talking about the help they received to get their place a university.
