A key feature of Sixth Form life is growing independence. Girls will find greater freedom and flexibility at this level, but also greater demands, both intellectual and in terms of organisation and time management. Staff are here to support, help and advise, but now is the time for our students to start taking more and more responsibility for their life and success.
Students will need to start working towards becoming an independent learner, making sure that they keep up with the work set and being proactive in asking for help should it be needed, and planning leisure and work time so that they have time to enjoy themselves and to develop as a person as well as achieving their best in academic studies.
I have high expectations of all students, because I know that they are capable of achieving them, and I look forward to helping our Sixth Formers develop further the talents and interests that will underpin a happy and successful future for them all. Never settle for less than you are capable of and remember our Sixth Form motto: be the best version of you!

Admission to the Sixth Form depends on a sound performance in GCSE; we expect our students to gain at least five grade 6s (or grade B for those IGCSEs using the old system) overall which should include Maths, English and a Science (regardless of the subjects to be taken at A Level) and to achieve good grades (i.e. 7-9 or A/A*) in the subjects chosen for AS/A Level where applicable.
