Whitgift’s Sixth Form is, quite simply, an inspiring place to learn. The sense of dynamism is palpable, you can feel it as soon as you walk through the doors. Our Sixth Formers are ambitious, articulate, innovative, and well-rounded young men with a powerful sense of identity and strong values, brimming with self-confidence, but with their feet planted firmly on the ground.
So, what makes our Sixth Form so special? First and foremost, this is a school with a soul; a place in which a sense of heritage and modernity combine in a most compelling way. The School’s tradition of academic excellence is at the heart of everything we do, and you should expect to be consistently stretched and challenged; enquiring minds are very much the norm here! But this is no stuffy, ivory tower; Whitgift’s diversity, which truly reflects modern London, is also one of its greatest strengths, ensuring that the atmosphere is genuinely lively and stimulating.
What characterises the Sixth Form experience at Whitgift is the sheer breadth of opportunity available to students. Whether you choose International Baccalaureate (IB) or A Level is only the start of it; the range of co-curricular opportunities is exceptional and there are countless opportunities to develop your leadership skills. Whatever your talent, you will find an outlet for it here, whether in the classroom or the concert hall, on the sports field or the stage.
The Sixth Form years promise to be two of the most exciting and challenging that you will experience. You will need to balance increased independence with responsibility. The transition to adulthood isn’t always easy, but your Form Tutors and the Sixth Form team will be there to inspire, encourage and advise you at every stage of your educational journey. First-class university guidance will direct you towards the best future possible. Ultimately, we aim for our Sixth Formers to emerge as outstandingly-qualified, lifelong learners with the ability to make a positive difference to the world. What’s more, they make friendships and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Our Sixth Formers are ambassadors for the School and role models for the younger boys, and we are immensely proud of them.
