What to do about your A-levels is a big decision. You need to choose the right subjects but it is equally important to choose the right place to study. For more than 140 years, The Queen’s School has nurtured and developed the talents of thousands of girls. In Sixth Form this approach usually takes the form of small group teaching led by our expert academic staff who are always on hand to help in lunch hours and free periods. Their commitment, enthusiasm, and expertise engages, inspires and challenges even the brightest pupils.
Studying at Queen’s Sixth Form enables not only excellent A-level results but from September 2024 we are excited to launch our new programme - Q-Elevate. Exclusively tailored for our Sixth Form students, Q-Elevate is an academic enrichment and bespoke future skills program carefully curated to ensure you are prepared to meet challenges and lead confidently in the future.
It encompasses four areas of focus: Q-Lead, Q-Global, Q-Enrich, and Q-Scholar will each contribute to your holistic development as a "world-ready" young adult.
Alongside studying 3-4 A-levels, you will be able to tailor your own Sixth Form experience to best prepare you for the future you wish to forge. Supported by a Personal Tutor, you will build your own unique Progression Portfolio to demonstrate the courses completed and skills gained throughout your time at Sixth Form.
Our small tutor groups will enable you to build excellent relationships with your peers and teachers. You will receive academic support, one-to-one mentoring, help and advice with UCAS applications, and get involved with a range of social activities.
There are also clubs and societies for whatever interests you, whether that is the arts, sciences, technology, sports, or other activities like CCF, karate, yoga, debating, Young Enterprise, or Duke of Edinburgh.
Sixth Form students are given both freedom and responsibility. Girls are challenged to reach their potential with personalised teaching in small groups which is underpinned by a uniquely nurturing atmosphere.
