Aiming high

Welcome to the sixth form at St. Anne’s, which provides the opportunity for academic success in a warm and friendly environment where Christian values matter. With a wide range of course, high teaching standards and exceptional pastoral care, we attract girls not only from the local area but also from overseas. 

We expect our sixth formers to adopt a mature and independent approach to their studies, aiming for the highest levels of achievement. With the help of our dedicated staff, they develop the skills that will prove invaluable at university and in the workplace: confidence, ambition and perseverance. As a result, many gain places at the university of their choice – including Oxford and Cambridge – or progress into their desired employment.

Care & Wellbeing

Our Sixth Form is led by key staff who will support students during their time at St. Anne’s:

  • Miss B Buffone – KS5 Wellbeing Lead

With our Catholic ethos underpinning life at St. Anne’s, care for students’ progress and wellbeing continues into the sixth form. We ensure that the sixth form is a happy, supportive environment for the students to reach their full potential.

  • Intervention programmes for all subjects

  • Subject teacher support, help, guidance and advice throughout all Level 3 courses

Student wellbeing is important. When a students’ mental health is taken care of and healthy, they flourish in all other aspects of their lives, in school, relationships with family and friends and in their faith.  As well as activities in school to keep active, our wellbeing Teams Page is a place where students can go to feel better about themselves and connect with other students, through a variety of ways. It includes quotes, videos, tips on how to deal with school and anxiety, positive affirmations, prayers, fitness, meditation, and yoga.
