The Academy is fortunate to be located on a landmark, twenty-first century education campus called the Macclesfield Learning Zone.
At the heart of the campus is the Learning Zone Sixth Form College or LZ6. LZ6 provides education for 16-19 year olds from The Academy, Park Lane School and other High Schools in Macclesfield and beyond.
Staff from the Academy are responsible for teaching many of the AS and A2 level courses. Most lessons take place in the LZ6, with some, such as science, being held in the science labs in The Macclesfield Academy.
A new and innovative sixth form tutorial system has been implemented to ensure full integration of students within the Sixth Form College. Specialised tutors manage tutor groups and one-to-one tutorials with students drawn from different courses. They have responsibility for a tutorial programme based upon Every Child Matters, as well as for individual target setting and tracking student progress.
In a recent survey of sixth form students in LZ6, 94% said that they would recommend LZ6 to a friend!
