King's Sixth Form offers both academic excellence and outstanding support and guidance for students as they study in our co-educational Sixth Form Centre for the important final two years of school.
Our students consistently achieve some of the best A Level results in the country: typically around 45% of all grades at A*/A and 75% at A* - B. However, the emphasis is not just on good results, but on supporting well-rounded individuals who are well prepared for university applications and the world of work.
We appreciate the importance of fostering independent learning, personal organisation and a balance between work and play. The majority of our students study three A Levels, although in some cases (often where Further Mathematics is studied) four subjects are chosen.
A breadth of learning is maintained through an Extended Studies programme which includes a course in Global Perspectives in Year 12, and the prestigious Extended Project Qualification or an alternative qualification in Year 13. Students also enjoy a wealth of recreational activities, careers support, plus time for private study and tutorials. Sixth Form life extends well beyond the classroom and includes a range of activities including Young Enterprise, Model UN, World Challenge expeditions to places like Costa Rica, India and Java, volunteering, charity work, and extensive trips and enrichment activities.
In addition to our many students who have studied at King's for GCSEs, we welcome a good number of students from other schools, who very quickly settle in our friendly and vibrant Sixth Form. Year groups are typically around 100 - 120 students with tutor groups of around 12 students per group.
Please do come and visit us: we would be delighted to welcome you at our Open Evening in the Autumn term and share what King's Sixth Form has to offer.
