Welcome to our Sixth Form pages which we hope will give you a taste of what is on offer both inside and outside the classroom in Years 12 and 13.
The Sixth Form experience is the summit of Gordon’s School. Through their studies, activities and successes in many fields students are able to develop into confident, articulate young men and women, ready to make a significant contribution to the world. High academic standards are a given but our focus is on enabling individuals to meet their personal as well as academic potential. The pastoral and social aspects of the Sixth Form are an excellent preparation for higher education and employment, with an emphasis on developing leadership and teamwork skills, as well as self-motivation and time-management in a busy boarding environment.
You will find on separate pages on this website a short guide to the Sixth Form curriculum with a description of AS and A2 Level options, together with an outline of how we help with study skills, independent learning, careers guidance and university applications. You will find we also have a wide range of extra-curricular activities and leadership opportunities including an extensive Sixth Form sport programme, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme Expeditions, music and drama productions and university taster lectures.
We hope that you find the following information useful and we look forward to meeting you on your visit to see us in action. If you would like further information regarding Sixth Form admission or would like to find out about our open mornings, please click here.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
