For girls aged 16 – 18
Welcome to the Sixth Form
The Sixth Form at Croydon High School is an exceptional and intellectually rigorous place to study. At its core is an academic curriculum characterised by an interactive and exciting approach to teaching and learning. The goal is to inspire aspiration and independence in ‘every girl, every day’.
Striking a balance between academic excellence and first-rate pastoral care, we seek to nurture the individual, so she can be a confident, engaged, compassionate and ambitious future leader of society. Indeed, we invest of a lot of time and effort in preparing girls for their future, whatever that may hold. 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.’ As a Sixth Form team, we will seek to uncover what it is that makes you unique and equip you with the tools that you need to ‘stand out from the crowd’ so that you can market yourself and your achievements in a competitive world.
In addition to our own students progressing through to Sixth Form from Year 11, each year there is a substantial intake of new students who chose to move from other independent schools locally, from other parts of the UK and abroad. Why do they move and why do our Year 11s stay? The reasons are as numerous as the students themselves. Some are attracted by our compelling and distinctive approach to girls’ education, some relish the opportunities for genuine leadership or our focus on the individual, whilst others like the friendly, supportive and welcoming nature of our community. Why not come and explore our Sixth Form for yourself? I’d be delighted to meet with you!
