Sixth Form

Welcome to Queen Elizabeth’s Girls’ School Sixth Form where we are very proud of our tradition and heritage of educating women of the future. The choices you make in terms of your Post 16 education is paramount. At QEGS Sixth Form we offer Year 11 students the perfect transition, which is supportive and effective for both our
current students and those joining us from outside the school. The ethos of our Sixth Form is one of high achievement and high expectations. This applies to both the academic life of our students as well as to their own personal growth. The environment we provide enables girls to flourish as confident, intelligent, resilient
and ambitious young women who are focused and prepared for life beyond Sixth Form.

We offer a wide range of A level subjects and have an excellent record of results, achieved through high quality teaching and learning. Students go on to study at Russell Group, Oxbridge and other institutions as well as entering into high level apprenticeship schemes with top employers. The Sixth Form has its own dedicated areas in the school, a common room that is divided into study areas and breakout areas and a silent Study Centre attached to the Library.

All students have an experienced Pastoral Mentor, a specialist in one of their chosen subjects, who provides personalised, individual support, through information, advice and guidance. The school ensures girls follow a coherent pastoral programme of study that will enrich their life and also best support their chosen progression route after Sixth Form. Students are also encouraged to take advantage of the rich educational and social opportunities offered. All students take part in an Enrichment programme and work experience takes place in Year 12.

Sixth Form students are heavily involved in the Lower School and are given leadership roles and responsibilities in the form of mentoring younger girls, running clubs, supporting in lessons and as reading mentors. This ensures the connection between the Sixth Form and main school year groups, providing aspiration and insight to Sixth Form life for younger girls. At the same time there is opportunity to provide service to the school and the wider community, a valuable learning experience for later life.

We believe it is absolutely vital to prepare the girls for the world of work and we are privileged to be involved with the Women of the Future Ambassadors Programme. Throughout the year a variety of students are invited to talks and networking events with inspirational, high achieving women in their chosen field.
