    Sixth Form

    The vast majority of students at King's continue their studies into the Sixth Form. The school also admits a significant number of external entrants to the Sixth Form each year. Boys from a wide variety of schools join us to study A Levels and feature prominently in our academic and extra-curricular successes. The Sixth Form of approximately 270 students is characterised by strong academic, cultural and sporting traditions, high all-round standards, a happy, purposeful atmosphere and a pleasant learning environment.

    The school offers a broad choice of academic subjects, General Studies, games programmes and numerous opportunities for extra-curricular involvement, leadership and personal development. Our aim is to help all sixth formers integrate quickly, make a smooth transition to A Level courses and fulfil their academic potential whilst developing into responsible and respected leaders in the community. Examination success ensures that more than 90% of our students are able to move off to either their first choice university courses or direct entry into their chosen careers. Each student benefits from a system of regular monitoring and reporting and from individual guidance, support and advice provided by the pastoral team. The Head of Sixth Form is supported by Heads of Year 12 and 13 and an experienced team of tutors in overseeing the academic and personal development of all students.

    In the Sixth Form we enjoy a close working relationship with our sister grammar school, Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School. This link provides a wider range of courses to follow as well as accompanying social benefits.

    At present Sixth Formers study 3 or 4 A Level subjects. All students take General Studies as a further subject at A Level and students participate in Games and Enrichment Studies including Personal Development, Careers and HE guidance.

    The school has recently opened a state of the art Sixth Form Common Room with coffee bar, and dedicated Study Centre with full computer access . We hope to further extend the Sixth Form Centre to incorporate a refectory for our senior pupils and enlarged social space.
