Welcome to our Sixth Form

I am delighted to present our unique Sixth Form for girls.

FGS Sixth Form is all about success. As part of this, we believe our students deserve an education that broadens their experience and prepares them for the challenges of an increasingly competitive world. The girls will need the best possible qualifications available to secure offers at the best universities. Many of our students join us with outstanding results gained in Year 11: we build on these results and ensure that the academic potential of every student is met.

FGS Sixth Form students benefit from the great advantage of having teachers who know them and know how to get the best from them. Students are based in our dedicated Sixth Form Centre at FGS and are taught by subject specialists from the School.
FGS is small enough to provide for individual need and with high aspirations for all students we are uniquely placed to support our girls through the academic challenge that comes with ambitious target setting.

Beyond academic study we have identified some key personal development success factors and created an entitlement for all students which includes:

  • Sixth Form induction programme
  • Internships and volunteering
  • Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
  • Enrichment Opportunities
  • Preparation for the Future and University
  • Specialist Mediprep university access course

We work in partnership with universities including the University of Manchester, Oxford, Cambridge and many others to ensure that our girls are thoroughly prepared for the UCAS application process.

Our Senior Head Girl Team is drawn from our Sixth Form and these highly successful girls lead our overall student leadership team as the ultimate role models in school.

All of our Sixth Formers have the opportunity to improve their research and independent study skills and play a central role in wider school life: acting as leaders, gaining additional qualifications, mentoring younger students and working alongside the teaching staff in the School.

It is this attitude, commitment and ambition which makes the Sixth Form at FGS a special place to continue YOUR journey to success
