Omagh High School 6th Form - An Outstanding Choice

The Sixth Form at Omagh High School is an integral part of an outstanding school that gives to all the students enjoyable and rewarding experiences.

Our senior students play a significant role in the school. They are true ambassadors of the school in and outside the building. Every student in our Sixth Form is a genuine leader within their "House". The House system runs through all years in school up into the Sixth Form and offers many leadership opportunities at post -16. There are three house groups with upper and lower students led by an experienced house teacher with deep understanding of the needs of the students at this level.

All Sixth Form students will be required to contribute to the life of the school through duties, representing the school at a variety of events including Open Evening, Prize Giving etc. and through being core representatives for the school in the wider community.

In year 13 there are opportunities to apply to become a House Captain or Sports Captain with the responsibility for the pupils in your House throughout the school.

In year 14 a number of students are selected to become prefects and senior prefects through a rigorous interview process.

The Sixth Form offers opportunities to students to become:

  • Library Prefects

  • Media Prefects

  • Charity Prefects

  • House Mentors

 

All of these roles provide significant opportunities for personal and careers development and assist the smooth running of the school.

Sixth Form students have their own centre that has recently been refurbished and it includes a common room, study room and private locker area.

An extensive range of Enrichment Activities is available. These additional activities are important in developing students' interests, experiences and subsequently providing an interesting Curriculum Vitae which is critical for the next stage of education or work.
