Small Class Sizes 


At Rainhill Sixth Form, our strength is our size. We are a small Sixth Form with a capacity of 250 students.

The average class size is 8 students, meaning you will get lots of 1:1 support from teachers in lessons and outside. This will lead to rapid progression through personalised support, from our specialist staff, leading to excellent results.

We try and run classes wherever we can, even with low numbers. This means you are more likely to get your first choice of subjects, even when numbers are low. Getting you into the right subjects is our priority because if you enjoy what you do you will achieve your potential.

Our students at Rainhill Sixth Form love our small class sizes. Read their comments below:

“It was the obvious next step as all the courses were available that I wanted to study. I also knew that class sizes in Sixth Form would not be too big which was perfect for me.” JM, attended Rainhill Sixth Form 2016-8. 

“Friendly and supportive place to be and study and I think the staff really do care about you as a person not just what grades you are expected to get.” MM, attended Rainhill Sixth Form 2016-18. 

“I chose Rainhill Sixth Form because I liked the idea of small class sizes with the extra opportunity to have additional teacher support because of that. I have had a very positive experience studying at Sixth Form and grown as a person because of the positivity and encouragement of all the staff and people I have worked with and met over the two years.” SD, attended Rainhill Sixth Form 2016-18.
