The Sixth Form Difference

We’re so proud of our Sixth Formers, who reflect the unique ethos of Tormead. 

So, how do we produce these well-rounded, confident and intellectually curious young women, ready to make a positive contribution? 

  • Engendering intellectual and social confidence through opportunities such as symposium research and presentations, assemblies, the Horizons programme, and voluntary work at local schools and care homes.
  • Developing leadership skills as mentors and House Captains and Sixth Form Ambassadors.  
  • Fostering positive workplace relationships by treating students as adults. 
  • Offering a wide range of support for students to pursue diverse courses after A Level (including specialist Oxbridge advice).  
  • Empowering pupils with the voice to express concerns and actively lead on them. 
  • Encouraging the individual and unique interests of every girl. 

I particularly enjoy working with bright, curious and courteous young people with a real sense of fun – and helping them plan for a fulfilling life beyond school. The Tormead Sixth Form has a strong sense of community, while achieving very highly across the board.

Our new Sixth Form Centre opened in September 2022, with an expansion of the existing Sixth Form facilities to include a new common room and café, lecture and teaching spaces, dedicated study, collaboration and social spaces, all designed to bridge the gap between secondary education and university.

Above all, we celebrate our Sixth Formers’ creativity, academic achievements, social and intellectual ease and the myriad of ways they make the world better.

Every graduate from Tormead has received investment in their wellbeing as an absolute priority. Helping students to learn what really matters to them is vital as they make decisions and face the joys and challenges outside of further education. Whether a degree apprenticeship, Russel Group university, conservatoire or straight into work or travelling, every Tormead Sixth Former has had the opportunity to learn what really makes them tick and the importance of their own role in reaching their goals
