Life in Sixth Form

"The size of our Sixth Form means that we really feel like one ‘big’ family."

“There is an amazing difference between Senior School and Sixth Form. It’s a completely different dynamic, one in which you are feel like an adult. With the support, guidance and mutual respect of tutors who know you extremely well, Sixth Form allows you to gain the confidence to challenge yourself, whether that be getting top grades, finding a new talent, becoming a prefect or taking advantage of one of the many other opportunities available here.”

Lucy Thatcher, Year 13

“One of the things I love about Sixth Form is that we have somewhere we belong: somewhere we can get on with our work in the study zone, make endless amounts of tea and toast in the kitchen or dance and sing at the top of our lungs without being judged.

The boundaries that may have existed between year groups melt away and some unlikely, but nevertheless firm, friendships form. Everyone is always so friendly and ready to give advice and support on anything from how to survive writing a personal statement to where does the best caramel latte.”
