Sixth Form

Learning in Cobham Hall’s Sixth Form is stimulating and exciting and allows you to develop yourself both academically and personally. All Sixth Form students are considered leaders of our School, and this greater responsibility, coupled with increased independence, self-reliance and self-awareness, creates an environment which prepares you for life beyond school.

This year sees a particularly exciting development for our outstanding co-educational Sixth Form: for the first time in history we are opening a boarding house for boys, having accepted our first day boys last year. We believe our co-educational Sixth Form creates an ideal environment for those in Years 12 and 13 to begin to prepare academically and socially for life at university.

One of our greatest strengths lies in our ability to provide opportunity: the opportunity for you to thrive academically; to enhance leadership skills; to develop resilience; and to take responsibility for yourselves and others.  In our inspiring environment, aimed at enhancing your intellectual curiosity and creativity, you will have ample scope to achieve a feeling of pride in your endeavours.

Our curriculum goes beyond the traditional, placing value on both academic and non-academic successes. Our whole school ethos of ‘there is more in you than you think’ will encourage you to develop, or indeed discover, your talents and interests. We will foster your ability to think critically and challenge assumptions; we will support you to develop confidence and become an open-minded, knowledgeable and principled thinker. We want you to be challenged, to take risks in a supportive environment and to be unafraid of failing; our rigorous academic structure and our co-curricular activities will allow meaningful experiences that will enhance your self-development.

Virtually all our Year 13 students go on to university. Some elect to follow highly academic routes, such as study at Oxbridge and Russell Group institutes; others opt for more vocational courses, while some wish to continue their studies abroad. Whatever your preference, our aim is to ensure that you are happy, motivated and considerate: empowered to be the best you can be, secure in the knowledge that you will leave us equipped for an ever-changing future, fully prepared to embrace the challenges that lay ahead.
