Big changes await all those who enter the Sixth Form at King’s, changes that bring both greater freedom and, with it, greater responsibility.
They notice this from day one, as Sixth Form pupils take pleasure in the freedom of leaving their uniforms behind to dress in business suits. They notice the subtle changes in the way they relate to teachers and tutors, building a rapport which becomes more adult. They enjoy the social experience of the Sixth Form Common Room, which includes a bar on Friday and Saturday evenings. The new Sixth Form Centre, opened in September 2018, provides a combined social, study and conference hub at the heart of the school, for exclusive use of the Sixth Form.
Our approach is one of: “If you want to try it then do it. Tailored and flexible for the very highest levels of performance. Be ambitious, give it a go and see what you can achieve.”
At King’s Sixth Form we place great emphasis on the providing opportunities for pupils to try new experiences and take on responsibilities. They become leaders in the school. This may be as leading cadets in the CCF, being a senior soloist or musician in a choir or ensemble, becoming a prefect, a leading sportsman/woman, or a student mediator or more besides. We actively encourage Sixth Form pupils to recognise their role in leading the school, in setting the example to younger pupils and growing into society’s leaders of the future. Pupils may join the Elite Athletes Programme, take an active part in community service, form a new band, gain a taste for the stage in a school production or build their Duke of Edinburgh Gold qualification.
