Welcome to our Sixth Form
We are an ambitious Sixth Form, benefiting from outstanding facilities and a unique setting and everyone who studies and works here strives for excellence in everything they do. This high standard creates a buzzing sixth form environment where our students are able to flourish and grow their confidence, so that they are ready to take their place in the world.
We pride ourselves on offering high quality teaching and learning in a wide range of subjects. We offer all the traditional A-level subjects you would expect from a large Sixth Form, but our offer also includes subjects which are not available at other local institutions. For example, you can study French, German and Spanish at A level, as well as Computer Science, Music, Music Technology, Drama and Dance. We also offer a number of one-year courses to complement your programme of study, such as the Extended Project Qualification and Mathematical Studies.
Your lessons will be fast-paced and challenging, delivered by expert teachers, benefiting from first-class facilities. We have a Performing Arts Centre, Music technology suite and cutting-edge IT facilities both in the House and across the school. Aside from your subject choices, you also have the opportunity to enhance your wider skills through our extensive Enrichment Programme, where you can hone your skills in debating, sport, the arts, politics and much more. We are also proud of our Student Leadership team who underpin our community and the student life. It is important to us that our Sixth Formers are busy and feel part of a community. Not only will this enhance an application to higher education or employment, it also builds esteem and improves well-being.
Our standard of excellence extends to the support we provide to all of our Sixth Formers. Every student has a specialist Sixth Form tutor, whose primary role is to oversee your progress and well-being, and to help you move on to university, an apprenticeship or employment. This team of tutors is led by a Head of Year and a Well-being Officer. We also have a dedicated Oxbridge/Russell Group mentor, an award-winning Post-16 Careers Counsellor and specialist support for our disadvantaged students. Coupled with your subject specialist, this network of professionals will ensure that you will be happy, safe and successful whilst you are with us.
