“I chose Rainhill Sixth Form because of the amazing art department and Arts Academy at the Sixth Form, renowned for the talent of both students who have previously attended and of the department staff. I attended The British Style Collective in Liverpool and this experience consisted of runways, designer showrooms and a fashion show in which different designers showcased their work. It was great to see and gave me a lot of inspiration.” AL, attended Rainhill Sixth Form from 2016-18

“Whilst at Sixth Form I went on an Arts Academy trip to New York, we were given the opportunity to see the Statue of Liberty as well as visiting Art galleries such as the Moma and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A fantastic experience! During my time at Sixth Form I have established a good relationship with all my teachers in the arts department especially Miss. Simms who was also my form tutor. I received lots of guidance and help from my teachers and felt like I was always in a comfortable and friendly environment.”  AA, attended Rainhill Sixth Form 2016-18
