Sixth Form

The transition from GCSE to A Level is a significant time for students.

Social pressures from peer groups and social media abound, whilst in the classroom subjects get harder and the careful planning of study time is crucial to academic success.

Students who complete their education in Seaford’s Sixth Form enjoy a range of privileges appropriate for their age, with their own common room and dining room. Separate boarding houses are provided for the Upper Sixth, and in these students enjoy a lifestyle and facilities befitting young men and women about to embark on life at university. Spacious study bedrooms offer ample room to revise for those all-important end-of-year exams.

As well as fantastic facilities and a broad range of extra-curricular activities, Seaford provides a breadth of choice in A Level subjects. Sixth Formers are divided into small tutor groups, but more commonly meet on a one-to-one basis with their Tutors to discuss aspects of their work and monitor their progress.

We have additional academic and careers support, led by James Gisby, which includes a mentoring system to stretch students beyond the curriculum and coach them through university applications, as well as dedicated support for those looking to follow a different path.

Boarders eat good food, exercise regularly, and have dedicated prep time with access to many different subject teachers, which translates into students achieving their potential.  Most of the College Sixth Formers go on to university or higher education. All are equipped with self-confidence and entrepreneurial skills, as well as a passion for life and a willingness to succeed, whatever their chosen path or career.
