The purpose-built classrooms, new common room and study-resource area with high-speed Wi-Fi will greatly enhance the Sixth Form experience, creating an environment that is conducive to learning whilst allowing our students greater independence.
St John’s College has a distinguished record of success with University admissions. Specialist mentoring and one to one guidance are offered so that students are fully supported with their subject choices, UCAS personal statements, university choices and ultimately career paths. The school has an outstanding reputation for gaining places at first class universities. This year nearly 40% of the grades awarded were A* which is a truly outstanding achievement for our students, many of whom will be proceeding to Cambridge and top Russell Group Universities.
Sixth Form Students are encouraged to participate in a range of activities aimed at augmenting their educational experience. There is ample opportunity to engage in public speaking and debating, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, a wide range of sports and volunteering. In the performing arts, students have the opportunity to become fully involved in the staging of senior dramatic productions, LAMDA and our award winning concert orchestra.
