We understand that our Sixth Form students are young and adults and we work very hard to ensure that we maintain the appropriate balance of supervision whilst giving our young adults the freedom to organise their own working day at school. We also provide a host of organised activities outside the classroom which range from the University recognised Excelsis Award to Water Skiing at Gosfield Lake.
Our Sixth Form students are ambassadors for our school. They engage fully with school life and undertake duties such as mentoring our younger cohort and assisting with reading in our Pre Prep and Prep School. Our Sixth Form students volunteer as prefects and elections are held for the positions of House and Sport Captains for the schools three houses, Nevill, Tudor and Woodstock.
Our Head Boy and Head Girl are elected by their peers from our Sixth Form cohort.
Enrichment days such as First Aid training, team building and university survival training complement classroom studies and add further to the strength of university applications.
A wide range of clubs and activities are on offer to our Sixth Form students to enable them to explore and develop their talents. These include drama, debating, music and numerous sporting activities on land and water.
The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme gives students the opportunity to experience outdoor adventures whilst learning valuable life skills. Participation adds a stand out dimension to a university application.
Sixth formers may choose to participate in the Excelsis life skills award completing modules including leadership, team-working, self management, problem solving, creative thinking, presentation and research. The award is internationally recognized and provides additional strength to our student’s university applications.
Sixth Form pupils take the lead in charity fundraising at Gosfield and have the opportunity to participate in charitable and community service projects both locally and overseas.
Boarding provides the ideal environment to dedicate quality time to A Level studies and course work, as well as helping students to prepare for university life. Some single rooms, specifically for our Sixth Form students, are available in our Boarding Houses as well as shared rooms. Weekly and flexi boarding options are available.
All Sixth Form students have one afternoon of PE timetabled every week and students are expected to attend these sessions. Students also have the opportunity to take an active part in school team sporting events such as swimming galas, cross country events and sports fixtures including rugby, football, cricket, hockey and netball.
