What to expect in Sixth Form?

You start at 8am and finish at 3.30pm. There’s time for a morning snack, a spot of lunch and endless opportunities.

Do more Life at Kings has endless opportunities. Instead of lessons, lunch, lessons and home, we provide a wide range of further opportunities, both academic and extra-curricular. From football to dance, there’s something for everyone. There’s even the opportunity for students to take part in community service within school and work-related activities out of school.

Your own space Sit back, relax and socialise in the Sixth Form common room, a grown up environment for students to eat, catch up and make new friends.

Students, have your say! The Sixth Form Council, with voting members from each tutor group, plays a leading role in promoting and organising student activities. So if you have a good idea, let it out. Make a difference and help shape your Sixth Form.

……and you too parents Co-operation between students, parents and the Sixth Form is essential if students are to maximise their learning experience. We therefore arrange for parents to meet form tutors early in the autumn term and for subsequent meetings with subject teachers in Years 12 and 13. Parents are also welcome to contact the tutors or Sixth Form team at other times to discuss student progress or other matters of concern.

A bit of advice Careers education and guidance is provided for all students. There’s encouragement to take increasing responsibility for work in order to develop the skills needed at university and in employment. There’s also support on hand for when times get hectic, especially during exam periods.
