What to expect at our Sixth Form college in Croydon

At our private Sixth Form college in Croydon, we strive to strike a balance between academic excellence and first-rate pastoral care. Nurturing individual students is one of our top priorities, so every girl can be a confident, engaged, compassionate and ambitious future leader of society. By investing a lot of time and effort in preparing girls for their future, we create a comfortable learning environment with lots of opportunities for development. 

Through careful monitoring and guidance, our innovative Careers and Pathways Mentoring Programmes place each girl in the driving seat of her own future by encouraging her to develop her own ‘brand.’ Our Sixth Form team seeks to uncover what it is that makes each student unique and equip them with the tools they need to ‘stand out from the crowd’. This allows every girl to market themselves and their achievements in a competitive world.

Each year there is a substantial intake of new students who choose to move from other state or private schools locally, and from other parts of the UK and abroad. This is in addition to our own students progressing through to our Sixth Form from Year 11. There are a large number of reasons that our existing Year 11s decide to stay and external Year 11s move to join our school,  including our compelling and distinctive approach to girls’ education. Some students relish the opportunities for genuine leadership or our focus on the individual, whilst others like the friendly, supportive and welcoming nature of our community.
