Sixth Form at Wakefield Girls’ High School is a happy, enjoyable and pivotal two years for girls; girls become young women and pupils become students enjoying growing independence.
It is a time for maturing as well as academic development with many opportunities for rich and varied new experiences. The school is recognised for its tradition of academic excellence, energised by its students and enriched by an extensive social, sporting and cultural life, delivered in a friendly and caring environment.
As a member of the Sixth Form, students are encouraged to take an active part in the wider school community by helping to run lower school clubs and activities, holding positions of responsibility and acting as inspirational role models for younger pupils. Sixth Formers work hard and play hard, creating a very special atmosphere at the top of the school.
Students are able to enjoy all the benefits of a single-sex Sixth Form, with many opportunities for co-curricular activities with QEGS through The Arts, Visits and Expeditions and the option to study A-level subjects taught jointly between the schools.
Through their Sixth Form experience, we endeavour to ensure that students leave qualified, stimulated and well-prepared for the challenges of life.
