Sixth Form

Beyond the Classroom

Throughout your time with us in Sixth Form, we will provide specialist subject teachers in your lessons, as we know that very good teachers at this very formative age have a very noticeable effect. There is so much on offer outside of the classroom too though and we highly recommend that you make the most of all the available opportunities.


Many of our Sixth Form students take advantage of the range of musical opportunities available and actively participate in one of our many ensembles, orchestra, bands or choir. Whatever your musical taste or interest, they’ll be something for you to get involved with.

Each term you’ll get the option to sign up for the sports you would like to do and can choose whether you’d like to be involved in team games, racket sports, swimming or health and fitness. In addition before school, strength and conditioning training is available for Sports Scholars and there is the opportunity to swim every morning.

Developing leadership skills is a real focus throughout your time in Sixth Form and to support with this you will take part in a two day leadership course with an emphasis on communication and teamwork. Following this, there will be lots of opportunities to put your leadership skills into practice through applying for one of our many leadership positions, such as School Prefects and Heads of House.


A huge range of trips run throughout the year and include College-wide trips such as the skiing, diving and House trips as well as Sixth Form specific trips.  These are linked to A Level subjects and activities and culminate each year with the annual Lower Sixth expedition to Zimbabwe and Boswana where you will spend time supporting a school in Bunina as well learning about and experiencing the wildlife in their natural environment.

Social Events

Our Sixth Form social events are a highlight of our calendar for many, and are organised through our Sixth Form Events team. From informal BBQs and socials to formal black tie dinners and balls, a calendar of events will run throughout the year, strengthening our Sixth Form community and our sense of togetherness.
