Our vision is of a small Sixth Form with a strong academic focus. Students will have a high degree of responsibility for their learning, and will take part in – and even organise on occasions – a range of enrichment activities. There will be opportunities to engage in research and to deepen knowledge of areas of interest through co-curricular projects. We will establish a culture imbued with a spirit of intellectual adventure in which learning is valued for its own sake. Alongside their A Level subjects, students will benefit from a core Eudaimonia course which will stimulate interest in diverse topics and build cultural literacy through trips, visiting speakers and other activities. We will endeavour to forge new links with higher education institutions and build on our existing links with Imperial College, King’s College, London and University College, London.
Our first Sixth Formers will make up a small group at the top of the school. As such they will occupy a position of responsibility. They will be expected to act as role models and exercise leadership in different contexts. We will support and inspire them to acquire the personal qualities needed. We will also make clear the intrinsic link between leadership and service and create opportunities for students to help others, both in school and in the wider community. Involvement in extra-curricular activities such as music, sport, debating and other clubs will be strongly encouraged.
It is essential that candidates joining us in September are able to succeed in an academically demanding environment and, for that reason, we have set the entry level as equivalent to five grades at A and three grades at B from the best eight GCSEs, and at least an A grade (or grade 7) in each of the subjects to be studied.
The Sixth Form at The Cedars will offer unparalleled opportunities for personal and intellectual growth in a stimulating and supportive environment.
