The Sixth Form provides a positive and creative atmosphere which enables students to respond successfully to the academic challenges they will face, and which results in the formation of well rounded individuals.
Sixth Formers are encouraged to develop a more independent approach to their learning, and a strong sense of responsibility. This allows students to fulfil their potential in public examinations, and to make a smooth and successful transition to Higher Education. They are supported by the Sixth Form team (Head of Sixth Form, assisted by a Deputy and three Assistants), who are on hand to look after the general welfare of the students, to encourage them in their academic endeavours and to support them in researching their path beyond Whitgift.
Sixth Formers are also assigned to a Form Tutor, who they meet twice a day and who is able to offer guidance in both academic and pastoral matters. Our Sixth Form is a busy, diverse and vibrant community, and students have the opportunity to take part in a huge range of activities, clubs and societies. Many Sixth Formers will lead academic societies and musical ensembles, captain sports teams, direct plays, and play an important leadership role as School and House Prefects, or in the CCF. All members of the Sixth Form enjoy a number of privileges, and have access to a purpose-built Sixth Form Centre.
We are immensely proud of our Sixth Formers, and they play a crucial role in contributing to the ethos of the School as role models in our community.
