We encourage our students from the start to see their 7 year journey with us leading towards A Levels and Level 3 qualifications in our 6th form.

NE12 Sixth Form is our collaborative Sixth Form with George Stephenson High School (close by in Killingworth). This allows us to offer a broad curriculum, with some subjects taught at each site, and some subjects shared across both sites. Students have a free shuttle bus service that runs between the two sites throughout the day.

Please spend some time on our NE12 Sixth Form web pages finding out more - see the menu bar to the left which will take you to our welcome film, prospectus and subject information presentations.

We welcome students from other schools; you do not have to have studied here in Years 7-11 to join our Sixth Form. 

Please get in touch with Mr Williams, Head of Sixth Form, for more details on 0191 2189500 or IW@longbenton.org.uk
