The Sixth Form at Farlington is the best of both worlds. You will be free to develop independence within a supportive structure. We combine forward thinking innovation whilst embracing traditional values, and successfully prepare you for the next stages in your career, be it further academic study or within the world of work.
A broad choice of established, well respected A levels is offered in both traditional and practically based subjects whilst also providing you with a wealth of opportunities that will excite you and enhance your independent learning skills. You can choose to take the new Extended Project Qualification that is respected by universities in areas as diverse as ‘Organising a National School Showjumping Qualifier Show’ to an academic study of “Gothic Literature, a modern day freak show?”
The Sixth Form has its own, purpose-built building which comprises: a library with dedicated IT facilities, including wireless internet, seminar rooms, two common rooms and a kitchen for preparing snacks and hot drinks. This enables the Sixth Form to retain its individual character and atmosphere whilst remaining an integral part of the school. Class sizes are kept small, enabling every student to participate actively, and our outstanding teachers ensure our students attain their true potential with impressive ‘value added’ scores. Our students choose subjects which excite them and that they enjoy, free from any inherent gender bias.
Our pastoral care and preparation for the future is recognised as a distinct strength by our students and parents alike. You will be a member of a small tutor group with an experienced and committed tutor who will guide you through these vital two years whilst ensuring you gain the skills and independence you need to be successful beyond school.
The Sixth Form can, of course, take part in any of the usual school activities but we also introduce specific ones to enable you to encounter new challenges. You can experience Gold Duke of Edinburgh, Voluntary Service, mentoring other students, take on one of our wide variety of leadership roles, or volunteer for ‘Aiming High’, a local charity that runs sporting activities for the disabled here on site. We try to accommodate personal interests and passions and help you pursue these interests, be it setting up and running a choir or running a whole school charity event.
Our Sixth Form students are superb role models for the rest of the school. Come and meet them for yourself; we firmly believe they are our finest ambassadors.
