Why choose our Sixth Form?
It's all about you
Our mission has never wavered: to deliver the best atmosphere, support and results for our Sixth Form students. We aim to ensure that you leave us well-rounded, well-qualified and well-prepared for whatever challenges lie ahead.
The Best Choice
With 27 A-Level subject choices on offer, there’s never been a more exciting time to study with us - the best range of academic subjects, taught by the best staff, in and with, the best facilities. Working with our subject specialists, students just like you consistently go on to achieve superb results across the ability range, giving the widest range of options for when you move on after your Sixth Form career. The Sixth Form is a happy, vibrant place and has a truly special atmosphere.
The Sixth Form is an exciting next step in your education but we know that there's a lot to take on board. We've completely re-imagined tutoring; our Sixth Form students don't have traditional 'tutor time' every morning. Instead, you'll have a one-to-one meeting with your personal tutor once every 2-3 weeks to go through what matters to you. Perhaps you want a hand getting organised with your notes; maybe your CV or personal statement for university needs reviewing. Whatever the case, your meetings with your personal tutor are the opportunity to have a private, supportive discussion focused on helping you to achieve.
In our Sixth Form, you will focus on what matters. As a Sixth Form student, on most days, you won't need to arrive in school until your first lesson of the day, or you can arrive early to study or socialise if you wish. Once you've finished your last lesson, you're free to go home or to relax with a freshly-made panini and barista coffee in our Sixth Form-only café. If you've got a free period you can sign out to work from home, or nip off-site for an early lunch at McDonalds, Costa, Subway or Tesco - whatever works best for you.
Above and Beyond
It's not all about results. Outside of lessons, we have a packed enrichment and lecture programme to help ensure that you develop a diverse range of experiences and skills ready for when you move on to your next step. Some students use the time for work experience or volunteering; others help out with students lower down the school or participate in sporting activities. Our weekly lecture series attracts high-profile speakers from professional sportsmen and women to charity-workers and business-people.
