Sixth Form

Sixth Form Students at Cranleigh SchoolOur main aim at Sixth Form is to provide a stimulating and inspiring environment that will maximise academic achievement and prepare pupils for university or employment, all of which is evident in the breadth of our curriculum, the success of our A Level results and the quality of the graduate courses our students are able to access.

The Sixth Form is a vital transitional phase between school and university and the rich and varied opportunities offered at Cranleigh help students to bridge the gap successfully

David Boggitt, Deputy Head, Academic

The Sixth Form at Cranleigh offers an exceptional co-educational experience, where greater freedom, combined with studying favourite subjects, make for a fulfilling and rewarding two years.

But the next two years is about more than qualifications and we also aim to ensure that the Sixth Form is a rewarding experience, designed to develop life and leadership skills, confidence and independence along with academics.

The student body is a close-knit, friendly and creative community, which enjoys an excellent working relationship with teaching staff and a wide and varied programme of lectures and trips, including visits to our partner school in Zambia.

At Sixth Form, students study a smaller range of subjects, selected by themselves and in which powers of analysis and conceptual thinking will be central. Most importantly, students will be working more independently, and all private study time will be theirs to organise.

Small class sizes and excellent teaching promote high academic standards; year on year students achieve impressively high grades that enable the vast majority to obtain places at their first choice university. Others decide to take gap years, some choose to study abroad or to take a different direction and enter straight into employment or an apprenticeship leading to a degree.

Sixth form students enjoy their own dedicated leisure and café space in Butts, as well as making the most of the use of the School’s excellent sports and fitness facilities.
