Priority access into Silverdale Sixth Form

As Hope Valley is part of Chorus Education Trust, our students have priority admissions status when applying to Silverdale Sixth Form.

Their students consistently achieve some of the best results out of all the state secondary schools locally:

  • In 2017 students achieved the highest A-level results in Sheffield.
  • In 2018 students achieved the highest levels of progress in Sheffield.
  • In 2019 students achieved the highest A-level results in Sheffield.

It is also part of Silverdale School which was voted Top State Secondary School in the north by the Sunday Times in 2018.

This means that, as long as Hope Valley students meet the entry requirements, they will gain priority over any other external applicant for a Sixth Form place. Given that Silverdale Sixth Form is always heavily over-subscribed, this provides a great advantage to Hope Valley students.
