Building a future
If GCSE years provide the building blocks of core skills then the Sixth Form is the foundation on which each individual builds their future – the first real opportunity to stretch their wings, make decisions and take responsibility for their learning and development. This is where students make the transition from a structured and prescriptive programme designed to keep their options open, to the freedom to follow their chosen courses, forge their own path and pursue their aspirations.
Most girls choose to study four subjects in the Lower Sixth and take three A Levels in the Upper Sixth, whilst others take advantage of our flexible approach, creating a personalised programme to ensure the development of our truly individual learning portfolio.
co-curricular and enrichment programme
In the Sixth Form, our girls have a fabulous and exciting co-curricular enrichment programme.
This is comprised of the compulsory elements of sport and life skills, including elementary car maintenance and basic cookery alongside optional courses such as the European Computer Driving Licence, Extended Project Qualification and Oxbridge preparation workshops.
Careers advice and support with university applications will form a significant part of the extra guidance we provide. Mock interviews with members of the local Rotary club, a formal networking dinner, business breakfast meetings, useful contacts for relevant work experience and specialist taster courses are all available.
consistently high levels of success
We are very proud of the consistently high levels of success gained by the girls in all aspects of their endeavours. The vast majority of the girls go on to university, foundation art courses or music colleges, whilst a few choose other routes to exciting careers. Our excellent careers advice and academic support ensures that our students secure places at the leading universities, colleges and organisations in their field.
