Why choose Warlingham Sixth Form?

Happy and successful students

Warlingham Sixth Form students are happy and successful.

The teachers are engaging and inspiring, with all students continuously challenged to meet high aspirations and to widen their horizons.

Pass rates are consistently at or above the national average, and every year, 35%-40% of our students achieve high grades at A*-B.  Click here for more detailed information about our most recent A Level results.

Extra-curricular trips (for example to Iceland, New York and Switzerland) enrich and bring to life the subjects our students take, and activities supporting younger students in paired reading, spelling and maths, help to develop our students’ employability skills.

Student life is also enhanced by the committees, clubs and sporting activities, for example the surrey football league and the netball rallies in the local district.  Fresher parties and the Sixth Form prom are another source of enjoyment for our students.

With the wide range of opportunities provided, and the quality of the teaching and learning support they receive, it is no surprise that a significant percentage of our Year 13 students go on to be successful at Russell Group universities such as Cambridge, Kings College and Imperial College.

Support

As a sixth form of our size, we are able to provide all our students with a quality of care, guidance and support that we believe is second-to-none.  From the outset, our teachers and tutors can provide the regular daily contact in small groups (average class sizes are 11 in Year 12 in 2017).  This focussed attention ensures that all students get the support they need to be successful in their subjects.  At the same time, they receive appropriate guidance to support with progression into university, an apprenticeship, or the world of work, at the end of their studies.

Range of Courses

Our range of courses is large, and includes both A Level and Level 3 Vocational Courses.  All students have a free choice of courses with no pre-set blocking in operation.  And, in addition to this, all students can select one of our enrichment courses, which include the CSLA, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the EPQ (Extended Project Qualification).

Excellent Facilities

Warlingham Sixth Form offers a wide range of excellent facilities that students can benefit from.  The outstanding sporting amenities allow sixth form students to play football on a flood-lit Astroturf, work out in the fitness suite and swim in the 25m pool.  Sixth formers also have exclusive use of three IT ‘study’ classrooms and preferential use of the school’s Learning Resources Centre.

In addition to all this, students have daily access to a large, purpose-built sixth form common room that has recently been refurbished.

 
 
 
 
  • ‘I chose Warlingham over other sixth forms because I liked the atmosphere; I felt very welcomed during the Open Evening and I knew straight away that this was the sixth form for me.’

  • ‘I would like to study Psychiatry at university. The courses which I needed are all available at Warlingham Sixth Form and the addition of the Sixth Form Graduation Award scheme and being able to take the EPQ will be very helpful for my CV. I’ve been able to experience work shadowing and have worked with younger students in the
    paired reading scheme.’
