“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
I am delighted to announce that our current Upper Sixth have all received offers from their chosen universities. Some of the universities include Bath, Bristol, Cambridge, De Montfort, Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter, Leeds, St.Andrews, UCL and the University of the Arts London. It is a particular strength at Farlington that we know our students extremely well and the wealth of experience and support amongst the staff enables the girls to write personal statements which make them stand out from the crowd.
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.
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.”
