The Sixth Form sets the tone for the rest of the School: they are role models internally and its prime ambassadors externally. A choice of academic programmes, carefully put together with advice from experienced staff, allows pupils to prepare for qualifications suitable to their abilities and long term ambitions. To this end Sixth Formers can choose between the traditional A Level programme or the highly rated International Baccalaureate Diploma which has been on offer here since 2006. Both programmes have successful records.
The American car manufacturing legend Henry Ford commented, ‘Whether you think you can or you think you can’t - you’re right’. Central to our ethos in the Sixth Form is the development of the individual, imbuing our young people with confidence and motivation through full and enthusiastic involvement in school life.
Small tutor groups led by the Head of Sixth Form and Deputy Head of Sixth Form ensure our pupils receive advice, encouragement and expertise as they develop the independence and self-belief necessary to make the most of life in the Sixth Form and in their future careers.
