WELCOME TO THE SIXTH FORM

A very warm welcome to Farlington Sixth Form, where students enjoy a vibrant atmosphere based on challenge, breadth and preparation for the future.

Entering the Sixth Form is undoubtedly a key moment in education; this is the bridge from school to university and future ambitions. As a student at Farlington Sixth Form, you will study the subjects that you love and at which you excel, whilst enjoying a truly personalised Sixth Form experience that will fully prepare you for whichever future path you choose to take.

Academically, Farlington Sixth Form is a very successful place. In 2023, 74% of A-Level grades awarded to Farlington students were A*-B, and 83% of Year 13 students secured a place at their first choice of university. In 2022, 45% of A-Level grades awarded to Farlington students were A*-A, beating the national average (36.4%). In 2019, our Value Added results placed us in the top 1% of schools nationally.

Whilst academic success is of course important, we are about much more than qualifications. In addition to a wide range of A-Level subjects, a series of options for Sixth Form students at Farlington Sixth Form enhance independent learning skills, for example the Duke of Edinburgh's Award, Voluntary Service and the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). We will encourage you to use your initiative, build your ideas and interests, and develop transferable skills to set you on the path to future personal and academic success.

Whichever path you choose to take after Sixth Form, we will help you to be fully prepared for your next step, whether that means providing guidance on your UCAS application or helping to find the perfect apprenticeship.

Boarding is a popular option during Sixth Form years; it can provide a valuable transition towards more independent living at university, and can also be of real benefit when it comes to public exam season, when time usually spent travelling to and from school can be spent in the library or studying with friends – you can read more about boarding at Farlington here.

Please do come and visit Farlington Sixth Form, and meet some of our students for yourself. To arrange a visit, please contact our Admissions Team on 01403 282573 or by email to admissions@farlingtonschool.com.

I very much look forward to meeting you.
