“The Sixth Form creates a fun learning environment and my tutors have helped me every step of the way from choosing my subjects, to suggesting extra courses I could study to help me get into Medical School.”
Welcome to Sixth Form
Farlington Sixth Form offers students the freedom to develop their independence, explore new interests, and rise to leadership challenges alongside their academic commitments, preparing them for university and beyond. Greater independence and personal responsibility, a more flexible timetable and a growing focus on life after school means that girls develop into confident young adults ready to embrace their future.
A broad choice of A Levels are on offer in both traditional and practical based subjects alongside a wealth of opportunities to enhance their independent learning skills: Gold Duke of Edinburgh, Young Enterprise, Voluntary Service, Extended Project Qualification, to name but a few. We support personal interests and passions, be it setting up and running a choir, or project managing a charity event.
In September 2018 a new, significant Scholarship was launched for the Sixth Form. The ‘Vive Magna’ Scholarship offers a 50% reduction in tuition fees and is open to students entering the Lower Sixth from September, 2019.
The name ‘Vive’ originates from our school motto ‘vive ut vivas’ which means, ‘live life to the full’. The ‘Vive Magna’ Scholarship will be awarded to a student who epitomises the Farlington ethos and excels not only academically, but also in at least one other area, for example, Art, Drama, Music or Sport.
In addition to the Vive Magna Scholarship, the following Scholarships are also available: Academic, Art, Drama, Music, Sport, Textiles and a more generic Open Scholarship. The Open Scholarship will be awarded to students who demonstrate commitment, ability and potential in an area which is not already mentioned above. All Scholarships are open to both internal and external candidates. The deadline for applications is Monday, 5th November, and assessments will take place on Tuesday, 13th November, 2018
Come and visit our Sixth Form and meet our girls for yourself; we firmly believe they are our finest ambassadors. To arrange a visit, please call Louise Mursell on 01403282573 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

Sixth Form Life
The Sixth Form has its own building and excellent facilities; catch up with some research in the library, finish a project in the seminar rooms, relax with friends in the common room or satisfy your hunger with snacks in the kitchen. Class sizes are kept small, enabling every student to participate actively, and allowing our staff to help each girl reach her potential. Our pastoral values of integrity, endeavour, compassion and resilience form a happy and successful community here in the Sixth Form.
“Sport in Sixth Form is centred on being healthy, active but also having fun. You can choose to go to a local gym where you can set your own pace, go rock climbing, compete at golf or squash or even give water sports a try.”
