Producing the world-class global citizens of the future doesn’t stop at Year 11.
We view each individual student as unique, and we encourage and support every student to become the best version of themselves. We expect our students to take every opportunity to ensure that they fulfil their academic potential and, more importantly, develop into confident, well-rounded young people, ready to take their place in the world.
Students will learn their independence in the Sixth Form Centre where they will have access to private study facilities in addition to the school’s central Library, where they can also relax and socialise with their friends. Close tutor support ensures that each individual student reaches their potential and goes on to their first or second choice destination after Sixth Form.
The Expansive Curriculum allows students to continue with their passions and interests in sport, performing arts, outdoor education, leadership, academic curiosity, service and volunteering so that they are able to submit application forms for universities or apprenticeships of the very highest quality.
A team of specialist advisers ensure that all Sixth Form students receive expert guidance in all matters of the application process from choosing courses and universities to writing the personal statement.
In the Lower Sixth, students undergo a full UCAS induction programme and have the opportunity to attend the annual University Fair held at Exeter University. Specific days at the end of the Lower Sixth are dedicated to UCAS preparation and university visits.
Students on our Top Universities Programme receive enhanced support and preparation for their applications to their chosen pathways.
Students study 3 subjects in the Sixth Form plus an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification)
|A-level (OCR)||A-level (AQA)||A-level (Edexcel)||Applied|
|Photography||Chemistry||English Literature||BTEC Hospitality|
Sixth Form students are also required to do an EPQ which is valued by universities as 50% of a full A level. (Further mathematics students would not normally do an EPQ).
The Kingsley Virtual School is a unique collaboration between Kingsley School and Greene's Tutorial College in Oxford. Courses are delivered online, face-to-face with a live tutor who will be responsible for your progress and who will provide regular feedback on your written assessments.
Students may choose one of their 3 A-level / BTEC subjects to be studied through the Kingsley Virtual School, where their remaining subjects will be delivered at Kingsley, together with great pastoral care.
Pupils develop high levels of self-confidence and self-knowledge due to excellent support from dedicated staff.
