Joining our Sixth Form
In addition to our own Year 11s progressing through, we have an intake of new students who join our Lower Sixth each year from other independent and state schools locally, and also from abroad. There are, of course, many reasons why they chose to do so. More often than not, it is a combination of the broad range of subjects we offer, our record of academic achievement and strong, and genuinely, caring pastoral emphasis. Students are also invariably drawn to Croydon High by the fact that we do not view exam results as the only yardstick of success. Indeed, we seek to prepare students who are ‘real-world ready’ for whatever it is they want to do after A levels. Capitalising on our small-group approach, teachers and students are united in a common sense of purpose, which looks and feels different from earlier educational experiences. Crucially, our girls-only approach means that students find themselves in a confidence-building and highly motivating environment that encourages them to be genuinely bold and unique. As a result, our students make strong friendships which each other that endure long after they have left us.
It is often said that it is not what you know, it is who you know – but in reality, it’s probably both. The Ivy Link is a vibrant network of Croydon High alumnae who are ready and willing to offer practical advice and support, whether it is on university choices, work experience or any aspect of life after Croydon High! We are always amazed by the level of response we receive from our ‘old girls’ whenever we put out a request for information or advice.
