Southborough Sixth Form
If you missed out on seeing us at our recent Sixth Form Open Evening, please take a look at this presentation which should hopefully give you a flavour of what our Sixth Form has to offer.
Last year, more students than ever gained A level exam success and a high proportion were able to accept places at their first choice universities, including Oxford University, Kings College London, Queen Mary’s, London, UCL, LSE, Manchester and Bath University. For those students who chose not to follow the university route, many were able to secure high level apprenticeships, for example at leading research organisation the National Physical Laboratory.
Getting into the very best universities isn’t just about gaining top grades in your A levels. To stand out from the crowd, students really do need to demonstrate initiative, depth of knowledge and a genuine passion in current affairs, including the political and economic climate, recent research findings and scientific breakthroughs. At Southborough, we have a select group of Year 12 Sixth Formers who have got together in order to share and discuss their thoughts and views on what’s happening in the world today. They each independently research topics of particular interest to them and share their findings by publishing them online under the generic name ‘Queen’s Economist’. So far this year, they have published nearly eighty articles and they aim to publish at least another six or so additional papers every week. Please visit www.queenseconomist.com to read up on some of their findings.

Sixth Form Enrichment
Examination success is very important to us, but we also value other achievements.
