Our expertise is in working with aspirational young women, providing the environment and space for them to excel and develop the necessary skills and self-assurance that prepare them for life beyond school. Come on in – and please keep scrolling down to see all the exciting content!

Welcome to Sixth Form at St Helen and St Katharine, the best two years of school life! It is the time when you take control of your learning, pursue the subjects you enjoy and feel passionate about, and are given the freedom and independence to manage your own experiences. You will have challenging, exciting lessons, learn beyond the curriculum, give back to your school and wider community and have opportunities beyond your imagination.

Introduction from the Headmistress and Head of Sixth Form

This presentation was recorded at our live A-level Options Evening on Thursday 7 October 2021

Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form and Higher Education

New Sixth Form Centre

Our brand new Sixth Form Centre will open in 2022.

It is a physical articulation of our values and vision for Sixth Form, providing students with the space and opportunity to grow their academic and extracurricular interests in readiness for their future.

The space echoes and anticipates the very best higher education institutions, smoothing the transition from school to university.

"We want to ensure that St Helen's Sixth Form continues to offer an unparalleled learning experience – this new building will embody the atmosphere of curiosity, independence and community which is so important to our Sixth Form."

Rebecca Dougall, Headmistress
