Facilities

The superb new common room facilities located on both campuses are a fantastic resource which enhances the Sixth Form experience and promotes a sense of community between the students as well as helping to bridge the gap between school and the next steps.

Students have access to a range of study rooms, equipped with computers and learning resources. A dedicated Sixth Form Student Manager is always available, which ensures a secure learning environment where students can access the pastoral and academic support needed in order to be happy and confident learners. Comfortable seating and kitchen facilities are also available so students can take breaks when needed.

Being in the Sixth Form is unlike any other experience at school. You are given much more responsibility and independence, as well as the support needed to make the right decisions for your future. The timetabled independent study periods in year 12 allow you to manage the increase in workload that you will face as a sixth former while allowing you to develop as an independent

learner. These take place in a selection of Independent study rooms throughout the school that provide a calm and quiet area in which students can focus on their work and develop their learning. All of these sessions are supervised and supported by  a student manager.

Both campuses have enriching libraries which are used by Sixth Formers as a study area. These libraries are stocked with a range of textbooks and revision guides recommended by the A level teachers. The libraries include an ICT suite and quieter areas for silent reading and work to take place. A librarian is available throughout the day to support with printing and copying requests as well as borrowing books. At the Cambridge campus library, a purpose built mezzanine floor has been installed to provide an exclusive area for Sixth Form students to study.

In our playgrounds the Sixth Form students are given priority access to our catering hubs. These provide a large range of food and drink at break and lunchtimes at affordable prices. Students can also purchase breakfast in our canteens from 7.30am.
