Sixth Form College Curriculum
In the Sixth Form girls experience a variety of exciting opportunities to challenge themselves and develop as individuals as well as intellectually. On entry to SFC1, all girls are put into new tutor groups, each with a dedicated and specialist Sixth Form Tutor. The Tutor continues to provide valuable guidance and mentoring, and with the support of the Professional Guidance Centre, gives advice on careers, work experience and the Higher Education process.
We pride ourselves on offering girls choice. To that end, we offer two routes of study; traditional A Levels and the increasingly popular International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Within these two pathways, we are able to accommodate a wide range of options.
Outside lessons, an enriching array of confidence building co-curricular activities include many popular schemes and clubs: girls help a number of good causes through Community Links; Economics teachers oversee budding businesswomen in the Young Enterprise contest and the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme remains a favourite.
For their final two years in College, girls move into one of the Sixth Form houses, which provide a stepping stone to university life. Here they have a chance to develop increasing independence in preparation for adult life.
