All staff at Kings want Sixth Form students to aspire to great things, lead themselves and others, and to succeed in their chosen path.
We do this by upholding high expectations and creating opportunities for students to explore experiences that will develop them into interesting, engaging and proactive citizens of the world.
This could be in South Africa through the Huckleberry Foundation, on Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, mentoring younger students, taking a school ambassador role, department trips, school productions, participating in the school council or sixth form common room committee.
The opportunities are extremely broad within a school environment and as such we wholeheartedly believe in the value of Kings having a Sixth Form and in the Sixth Form having Kings.
How do we do this?
At Kings we believe there are five distinct aspects about a sixth form student that we focus upon to help them be the best they can be in both their academic and personal development.
