Sixth Form Life
When our students step through the Sixth Form Centre doors on their first day of Year 12, they're ready to flourish and grow - and we're with them every step of the way.
Our Sixth Form prepares our girls for their futures at university, in their dream careers, and much more. We support them to become the confident, kind, motivated young adults we know they are.
When you’re a sixth former at Sheffield Girls’:
- you’ll have a bespoke curriculum tailored to your needs, where you can study your exact choice of A-Levels and be supported by fantastic teaching.
- you can complete your own EPQ (Extended Project Qualification), completing an independent project you’re passionate about and gaining a qualification highly regarded by universities and employers.
- you’ll be in classes with a high student-teacher ratio that makes for a university seminar feel.
- you can participate in a variety of enrichment and extra-curricular activities that will let you strengthen your skills and broaden your horizons, as well as compete in local and national competitions in accounting, debating, languages and more.
- you’ll have access to nationally recognised careers support. Powered by a professionally trained and qualified Head of Careers, you’ll have comprehensive advice about university, apprenticeships and other options, individual support with UCAS personal statements, interview preparation, aptitude tests such as UKCat, BMat and more.
- you’ll go on day and residential trips to support your studies, like Business and Economics to New York, Politics to London, Art to Florence, Spanish to Majorca, and many more.
- you can get to know girls from across all the year groups, working as a Walking Bus Supervisor with the Infant pupils, to running lunchtime clubs with Senior girls - great opportunities for leadership and friendship.
- you’ll be known and understood as an unique individual, supported by tutors, Heads of Year, Head of Careers, and your subject teachers, with a School Counsellor and a School Nurse available too.
- you’ll have access to a powerful school-wide and GDST-wide alumnae network. You can ask questions about your career dreams to people who are in those industries, and be part of a wider community once you leave Year 13.
