Wakefield Girls' Sixth Form

Girls become extraordinary at our exceptional Sixth Form. 
They go on to achieve impressive A-Level results,  access competitive degree courses at leading universities and are awarded coveted degree apprenticeships.  
  • Our Sixth Form is intentionally designed to develop, challenge and prepare girls so they are able to forge futures, wherever they may be. 
  • By exploring beyond the examined curriculum, working in a companionable manner supportive of each other, echoing the culture here at Wakefield Girls', our students combine perspective, wisdom, confidence and compassion with their academic skills, becoming ready for life and work in our changing world. Wakefield Girls become young women who can confidently take their place in whatever role they choose.

Distinctive from our lower school,  our Sixth Form students are given great responsibility and vital roles in running our clubs and societies, managing voluntary work and becoming trained mentors for younger girls. A healthy relationship of trust, independence and mutual respect exists in our community and our Sixth Form students enjoy personal freedom and space, including their own cafe, common room and private study spaces at our Sixth Form Centre, Sotterley House.    

Sixth Form life is different for every girl as each studies different cominations of subjects, belongs to different clubs and pursues varied passions outside of the classroom.  Our Sixth Form students become quite busy but always united in our bright, like-minded community and structured tutor groups.  We support each individual in making important decisions about her future, encouraging independence, self-reflection and aspiration, to ensure that every student moves successfully towards her goal.

Although our students have chosen to take advantage of the benefits of studying in an all-female environment, there is also the opportunity to have joint lessons with boys from QEGS in certain subjects.
