Into Sixth Form

Moving up to our Sixth Form – and deciding which A Levels to study – is undoubtedly an important moment for your daughter.


That’s why we deliver such a thorough process to help her make the very best choices:

  • At Home with the Sixth Form (taking place in June of Year 10) is an opportunity for your daughter to find out more and hear of the experiences and aspirations of girls who have gone before her and start to dream of her own journey.
  • An optional but valuable tool is the Morrisby Profile, a sophisticated piece of psychometric profiling, based on a series of computer exercises done at home. The subsequent report presents areas of strength and matching possible career areas and subjects, alongside access to wide-ranging supporting information.
  • Throughout Year 11, we run careers lessons which discuss A Level choice, factors to consider, and resources; followed by in-depth preparation for the workplaces of today and tomorrow.
  • The Sixth Form Curriculum Evening (held in October) offers you and your daughter a perfect opportunity to discuss subject choices with subject teachers and mentors as well as our range of Sixth Form extra-curricular and super-curricular programmes.
  • “Appointments” are an opportunity for your daughter to discuss her options with the Head of Sixth Form on an individual basis.
  • Sessions for New Subjects. We offer three new subjects in the Sixth Form – so this is an opportunity for your daughter to find out more.
  • Taster Lessons – enabling your daughter to experience first-hand what it means to study a subject at A Level.

“As your daughter approaches the next stage of her academic journey and begins to prepare for the world of work in earnest, never have there been more choices and never have they been more exciting.”

Cathy Williams, Head of Careers and Professional Development

“The transition to Sixth Form is about new opportunities and a more mature relationship with your teachers. You’ll study subjects that you love, in greater depth, with experienced staff who share your fascination with academic discovery. There’ll be an exciting range of unique extra-curricular opportunities which we urge you to try – you’ll be surprised at the new skills and knowledge you develop.” 

Julian Sykes, Head of Sixth Form
