Academic life

What we offer?

The Sixth Form Lounge (with a full screen cinema facility) and Sixth Form Cafeteria on the ground floor provide a most pleasant environment for free time and social activities, as well as for meetings of the numerous Sixth Form societies. Our Sixth Form Boarding School students are drawn from a wonderfully diverse range of social and ethnic backgrounds, yet all share a thirst to achieve their full academic potential to attain their varied hopes and ambitions for the future. Life in the Sixth Form Boarding School is a new, exciting and challenging experience.  The Sixth Form Boarding School curriculum is enriched with complementary studies, which includes a general Religious Studies programme, lectures on moral and ethical issues and talks on Higher Education and Careers, Physical Education and an extensive extra-curricular programme. Sixth Formers have their own personal tutor who will monitor their academic progress. Classes are small and relationships with staff are relaxed; independent study habits are fostered and Sixth Formers are encouraged to think of themselves as senior members of the school community.
