Distinctive from our lower school, our Sixth Form students are given great responsibility and vital roles in running our clubs and societies, managing voluntary work and becoming trained mentors for younger girls. A healthy relationship of trust, independence and mutual respect exists in our community and our Sixth Form students enjoy personal freedom and space, including their own cafe, common room and private study spaces at our Sixth Form Centre, Sotterley House. Our Sixth Form students also wear 'smart dress' distinguishing them from our younger girls in school uniform.
Sixth Form life is different for every girl as each studies different cominations of subjects, belongs to different clubs and pursues varied passions outside of the classroom. Our Sixth Form students become quite busy but always united in our bright, like-minded community and structured tutor groups. We support each individual in making important decisions about her future, encouraging independence, self-reflection and aspiration, to ensure that every student moves successfully towards her goal.
Although our students have chosen to take advantage of the benefits of studying in an all-female environment, there is also the opportunity to have joint lessons with boys from QEGS in certain subjects.
