Sutton Coldfield Grammar School for Girls
Sixth Form

I am delighted to take this opportunity to introduce you to our Sixth Form.

We are a thriving community, celebrated for our creativity, enrichment opportunities and academic excellence. We focus on the development of empowered young women. Working with our students, we nurture individuals to reach their potential and we pride ourselves on our high standards; promoted thought personalised care and working with outside partners.

Year 12 students will study three linear A Levels, with an opportunity to take a fourth subject after discussion with a member of the Sixth Form Team. In addition to this, students have one Careers lesson and one Academic Skills lesson each fortnight. This leads to a further opportunity to complete an Extended Project Qualification which University admissions tutors comment on favourably and previous students have found them particularly useful at interview.

This website aims to give you an insight to the variety of opportunities if you wish to join our Sixth Form and we hope you enjoy finding out more about us.

Community

Sixth Form students are an integral part of the whole school community; they are role models for younger girls in the school.

In recent years, Sixth Form students have led the way in fundraising for a wide range of charities; local, national and international. Their commitment is exemplified by raising over £20,000 in one academic year, including £8,000 for Comic Relief.
