The new stand alone 6th form centre has been built within the grounds of the existing voluntary aided school and will enable pupils to continue with their education without having to relocate.

The building is constructed with steel frame, stone rendered, trespa panels at high level with forticrete smooth and rough stone to the gable ends.

The building is divided in to three blocks with a 300 seat lecture theatre taking centre stage and two teaching blocks extending on either side.

Within the building, there is a striking spiral staircase in the main foyer that is the central circulation area to the rest of the building.
Internally the 6th form has state of the art classrooms, IT suites, a large dining area, silent study facilities, social and common rooms.

The 6th form block was officially opened by the Archbishop of York John Sentamu on the 24th April 2009.
