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 deliberately small, enabling every student to participate actively, and allowing our staff to help each student reach their potential. Our pastoral values of integrity, endeavour, compassion and resilience form a happy and successful community here in the Sixth Form.

The Sixth Form at Farlington is not just about learning the syllabus to achieve fantastic A Level results; we are committed to ensuring that every student develops a wide range of different skills which will equip them on your onward journey.
Whilst academic results are undeniably impoortant, so too are "soft skills"; leadership experience, a sense of responsibility, empathy and an enquiring mind and carry as much importance when it comes to your future life. Emotional intelligence will help you to set yourself apart.
Our Senior Students are encouraged to act as role models to younger pupils, and have an important part to play in Farlington School life. Developing skills in teamwork and leadership, communication and presentation, problem solving and tolerance are a vital part of preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
Trips and visits are organised both as enrichment activities and to enhance the formal learning found in the classroom. Where appropriate, field trips and practical work put learning into context.
