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.

“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.”

“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.”
