Our Sixth Form is the stepping stone to our students’ futures. Students who leave our Sixth Form are confident, well-rounded and versatile young women who are excellently equipped to take their place in, and contribute to modern society.
Academically, we offer our students the opportunity to excel via one of two routes: A-Levels or the International Baccalaureate, a unique offering in the local area, which ensures the needs and strengths of all of our students are well supported.
Both routes allow students to pursue their passions and facilitate entry to the highest quality universities in the United Kingdom, Europe, USA, China, Hong Kong, Canada and others as demand dictates.
The exciting and highly prestigious Cambridge Pre-U Global Perspectives and Research course, as well as the Extended Project Qualification, stretch and challenge students whilst giving them a wonderful preparation for university style study.
The facilities we offer our Sixth Form students are excellent – from the dedicated Sixth Form building, where the ethos is one of greater independence, with small class sizes and more seminar-style lessons, to the Sixth Form Library where girls can find specialist resources and publications. Each girl is issued a personal laptop, to support learning in the digital age. Of course, there must also be space for the girls to take a well-earned breather, and the multiple common rooms in the Sixth Form and the Sixth Form Café meet that need very well indeed.
Our well-established tutor system enables each girls to develop a strong, supportive relationship with their tutor, who aids them through their rigorous studies and applications to university. Regular one to one meetings with their tutor ensures they are nurtured, challenged, assisted and given the support they need to flourish in their final years at school.
Combined with the Careers Programme, Higher Education Support, Learning Support, Pastoral Care and Alumnae Network, the Sixth Form truly provides the springboard and support system to help each girl succeed in their chosen field. When the results come in at the end of their time with us and the next step in their educational journey is confirmed, we could not be prouder.
