Our Sixth Form supports children through the pinnacle of their school careers. This is a time when students refine their areas of study, take exams and prepare for life after school. It is not simply our aim to get our students into the best universities in the world, we want them to excel once they are there. The Senior School nurtures self-development with a whole host of co-curricular activities, initiatives such as our ‘Community Action Programme’, it increases independence and offers tutor support for all facets of adolescent life.

A Level Qualifications

We offer A Levels, which are a gold standard for global university entrance. Our students do 3-5 subjects and these can be any combination. This system replicates the IB, but with more flexibility.

A Levels allow students to specialise in certain areas of study (for example sciences) and many global universities recognise the deeper level of knowledge and understanding when subjects are taken onto degree level after A Level.

Tutoring system

Every student is assigned a tutor, who mentors them through the challenges of Sixth Form. Tutors offer weekly 1-to-1 support and can assist both academically and on a pastoral level, ensuring your child is thriving in all areas of school life.

Your tutor will help set up in-house IELTS preparation and bespoke EAL support where needed. They are also on hand for university application support to institutions in almost any country, including UK, US, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Thailand, continental Europe and SE Asia.

Co -Curricular

As an integral part of nurturing ‘the whole person’, every Sixth Form student enjoys an array of activities. Activities are extremely broad in scope and are categorised by theme:

All students are assigned a pastoral tutor within the House system; tutors guide their tutees to choose a suite of activities that broadens their horizons, while nurturing their existing interests and talents. Activities are designed to build the experience that will directly help with university applications and general career direction.

University Preparations

Our Sixth Form receive full support and guidance throughout the university application process, whether they are applying to UK institutions or elsewhere. In addition to the more formal academic curriculum, our children also enjoy a Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) course and other support programmes.
