If you are considering joining our thriving Sixth Form, then the first step is to come along and talk to us and find out more about everything that we can offer you. You can meet the Head of Sixth Form, Mr Nicholas Hayward, and our International Baccalaureate Co-ordinator, Ms Jude Taylor and talk to members of staff, as well as talk to some of our current girls.

Our Information Evenings combine presentations about the Sixth Form experience and its alternative curriculum paths of A Level or IB Diploma, with the opportunity to chat with staff and students. If you would like a personal tour, please let us know and you will be welcome at any time.

Following your first visit, we will arrange a formal interview with the Head of Sixth Form for your daughter. Entry is dependent on a minimum of six GCSE’s at A*-B grades (or equivalent qualifications) and candidates are expected to achieve grades A or A* in subjects that they wish to study at A Level or IB. You will need a minimum of a C Grade in both English and Mathematics.  We also refer to predicted grades and references from the student’s current school.  Some students will be required to take papers to assess their ability in English, Maths and option subjects. A Skype interview may be requested for overseas students.

Our motto for Sixth Form life? Excellence, enterprise, and enjoyment.
