Sixth formers play a leading role in debating, the sports leadership programme and also work with younger students in a range of subject based clubs and activities.

Academic Enrichment

All departments offer support programmes for students looking to apply to top universities that require interviews and additional tests. We provide help preparing students for TSA, STEP, AEA and the other admissions tests as well as mock interviews.

Student Leadership

A number of senior students are selected to be School Captains, Senior Prefects, House Captains, prefects and mentors and play a key role in assisting with the organisation of the school and supporting younger students. The Student Executive play an important role in running the Sixth Form and organising charity events.

Educational Visits

There are a large number of trips and visits that take place for Sixth Formers, sometimes to support specific elements of the curriculum and sometimes to encourage wider social, cultural or sporting interests. Expeditions are organised to such destinations as Zambia, Washington and Iceland, while education visits to European destinations are a regular feature of the school calendar. Sports teams have been to Toulon (rugby), Portugal (football and tennis) and Holland (hockey). Senior students studying a language have the opportunity to undertake work experience in Marseilles and Berlin.
