“The Sixth Form is, in my belief, the most exciting part of your education journey at School. You have the opportunity to choose subjects that you will enjoy and also play to your individual strengths […] and experience the joy of in-depth learning and research.”
Mrs Emma McKendrick, Headmistress
The vast majority of students will study three subjects. Some girls may wish to study four subjects and it may be advisable for some to do so if they are considering particular professional courses, such as Medicine, at certain universities. These decisions will be made in consultation with the Futures Department.
All subjects (aside from the Extended Project Qualification and Higher Education and Research Skills) are taught via eight 40 minute lessons a week.
|Art & Design – Fine Art
