Welcome to Rugeley Sixth Form Academy
We hope to use this website to communicate information about all aspects of RSFA to all of its stakeholders.
The Sixth Form Academy is improving in all measurable aspects. Our new purpose designed sixth form area is at the centre of the students experience and has allowed us to make massive improvements to the students’ learning. Attendance has also improved because the students want to be here.
We are clear about our role in the community. We want our 16-19 year olds to make the best possible progress towards achieving their highest ambitions – be it university or employment.
We are mindful of the need to develop all aspects of our students. Whilst we continually strive to develop the highest class education in the classroom, we also want to put a range of opportunities in front of our students. They range from visiting countries on the other side of the planet to building links within the community on our doorstep.
To be even more successful we need to work as closely as possible with parents. Whilst we see our role as nurturing young adults towards maturity, we are ever mindful of the fact that our students still need looking after. Because we take this so seriously we make sure we know our students well and we know how they are progressing in all areas of their experience and at all times.
I enjoy working here hugely and I relish my responsibility for all of the students in my care. I want them to work hard and I want them to enjoy themselves in the sixth form.
I hope my core beliefs are spelled out here. I am always keen to speak to anybody who can suggest ways we can improve the sixth form and consequently improve the life chances of all of the students in our care.

Head RSFA, Vice Principal RA
Newsflash – Young Enterprise
Students at Rugeley Sixth Form Academy have been working hard over the past few months to launch a company as part of the Young Enterprise Company Programme. The team called Black Wick have produced a variety of products ranging from candles to home décor.
On Saturday 27th February the team participated in a trade fair in Burton and did an absolutely superb job selling out of the majority of their products. The fair was visited by several dignitaries including Amanda Milling MP for Cannock. Amanda Milling used her visit to the trade fair to question David Cameron in Parliament and highlighting Rugeley 6th Form Academy about his thoughts on inspiring next generation of entrepreneurs and whether he supported these initiatives.
We now wish the team good luck in their upcoming finals evening.
