Message from the Head of Sixth Form

This is the start of the next phase of your educational journey. In fact, it is the most important so far and an essential bridge to university life and beyond.

The Sixth Form experience is rightly described as the best that education has to offer. You will experience a greater freedom and enjoy studying subjects that genuinely interest you, in smaller classes, while forming more mature relationships with your teachers who will support you every step of the way.

Sixth Form life at Sydenham High is unique, packed with exciting opportunities and new experiences with which to challenge yourself. Life in the Sixth Form is busy, varied and rewarding. Alongside the main focus of A Level study and the Extended Project Qualification, there is also a rich selection of co-curricular activities on offer. We encourage you to pursue your own individual interests and participate actively in the wider life of the school.



I couldn’t have asked for a better atmosphere and environment. It served both the healthy pressure we needed but also a place where we could take a break and clear our minds. It had the perfect balance.

There are dedicated study areas and private study periods, as well as a new catering provision solely for sixth formers. Although there is no uniform, there is a dress code on our website which must be adhered to. Tutor groups are small and offer you personalised monitoring and support. The Next Steps Programme prepares you for university or apprenticeships and a bespoke Active Citizen Programme, combined with a strong careers provision, ensures that you leave Sixth Form motivated and well-rounded with an enquiring and independent mind, ready to flourish at university and beyond. You will create a host of happy memories to take away with you.
