Deciding what to do after GCSE, where you should go and what you should study, is a complex and important task. Choosing the right sort of institution to suit your needs is as important as selecting the right courses. In the Sixth Form at The Nelson Thomlinson School we offer a range of courses, excellent teaching, a team of highly skilled tutors and are very proud of the personalised service we are able to offer all our students whether they are applying for university, or training through apprenticeships or employment.
