Onslow St Audrey’s School is a mixed, non-denominational school with academy status situated in Hatfield, Hertfordshire in England. It specialises in business and enterprise, and is one of only two schools nationally to be awarded British Red Cross School status. Around 550 students attend Onslow St Audrey’s with around 60 in the sixth form. It caters for pupils aged 11 to 18.

Sixth Form[edit]

The sixth form is currently[when?] made up of 60 students, spread across two year groups. A friendly, communal atmosphere is present. Although the Sixth Form block, which contains a Study Room and a Common Room,is based away from the central school building, all lessons take place in the main school buildings. The Sixth Form is part of the 16 to 19 Welwyn & Hatfield Consortium and as such offers a wide range of A-Level subjects. Within the school A-Levels in Mathematics, English, History, Art, Music, Business, ICT, Biology, Psychology and Sport are offered, as well as a range of BTECs. Monitored broadband access is available, along with limited kitchen facilities, disabled access and toilets. All Sixth Formers have the opportunity to take the Community Sports Leaders Award, and most go on to the university of choice.
