Brooke House Sixth Form College (BSix) was opened in September 2002 on a site formerly part of Hackney Community College.
The distinctive ethos of the college is based on the belief that the principles of inclusivity and widening access are not incompatible with those of high standards and academic excellence. Staff joining the college will be helping us to give fuller expression of the validity of that belief than has been the case in recent years.
The college is hugely diverse in the composition of both its student and staff bodies and is committed to the development of its staff as well as to the provision of a broad and flexible all-round education for its students. To that end, BSix is one of five colleges which together make up the London Sixth Form Partnership. This body promotes and organises a number of training events and collaborative ventures which bring together staff from institutions grappling with many common issues and challenges.
A recent Investors in People assessment reaffirmed the College’s Gold status and the report strongly emphasised how the College is driven by its values. A recent Ofsted visit also acknowledged the progress that the College is making. “Overall achievement rates for all levels of learning have improved”.
The College is well-known in the education sector for its innovative approaches. There is much teacher-led discussion and sharing about teaching, learning and assessment. Our teachers and students are strongly committed to our comprehensive ethos and our belief that all young people are educable. BSix is therefore a rewarding, interesting and exciting place to work.
