Sixth Form

Sixth Form is a time of transition in your education. GCSE courses are a distant memory and the exciting wider world lies just ahead. We realise that as a Sixth Former you will want more freedom to make your own choices, more independence, to take more responsibility for your own actions and perhaps also the opportunity to become leaders both among your peers and in the wider world. We offer A Levels plus the opportunity to take an Extended Project Qualification.  Exam results are important and we set the academic bar unashamedly high, with tailored support for every individual pupil.

The College Concept

We have exciting plans for a new Sixth Form building which will offer the whole Sixth Form educational and social spaces, alongside boarding and day houses wings dedicated to the Upper Sixth.  The planned opening for the careers hub, study spaces and social areas is the 2024/2025 academic year and the accommodation wings in 2026.
