Welcome to Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form represents a new phase of independence and is ideal preparation for university, adulthood and everything else that awaits.

The Sixth Form is characterised by ambitious, motivated students who are ready for independent study. With a reputation for outstanding A-level outcomes, we have an impressive track record that sees our students progress to their chosen university course or destination.

Students choose to take between three and five A-levels. They benefit from expert teaching in small groups and our state-of-the-art Sixth Form Centre provides a modern base for study.

We encourage our students to undertake the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) in Junior Sixth. This is a self-directed and self-motivated study based on an area of personal interest. Universities actively look for students who have undertaken an EPQ as it demonstrates independent research skills and originality of thought.

Extra-curricular opportunities in Sixth Form are diverse and include the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, Doctors, Dentists and Vets Club, PhilSoc and Model United Nations. Students can also try their hand at life drawing or become involved in editing the school magazine, Onward.
