Frequently Asked Questions

We welcome questions about the Sixth Form and will post answers that may be helpful to parents and pupils in general.

Please email info@christs.school with your question.

Is there information and advice on careers and university applications?

High quality Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) is a strong feature of our Sixth Form. Careers advice is given as well as information on courses at higher education level and other opportunities post 18. We also ensure that the right training and preparation is in place for students who seek to gain entry to competitive courses or institutions, such as Oxford, Cambridge, other Russell group universities or Medical Schools. Students are supported through these processes carefully so that they can make informed decisions and prepare for their next step.

Is there a study area for the Sixth Form?

There is a designated study area for the Sixth Form with IT facilities and wireless access. Students have access to 25 iPads in the study area to support their research. Students also can use the main library and some designated small group rooms.

Are Sixth Form students allocated a tutor group?

All Sixth Formers are allocated a tutor group. In addition, sixth form mentors offer excellent pastoral care with a programme of activities to inform, support and guide students through Sixth Form life. A full induction programme each September will ensure students are fully prepared for Sixth Form life. Mentors will provide personalised support to ensure students are on track for success.

What is the Sixth Form like?

As Sixth Form students, the experience at Christ’s will be a world away from the previous five years at secondary school. Based in an exclusive state of the art study and social area within the new school building, there will be a dress code but no longer a uniform, much smaller teaching groups and a wide range of new activities and experiences. Responsibilities and opportunities will be specifically tailored to our students’ maturity and future university and employment needs.

Why should students study in the Sixth Form at Christs?

Christ’s has a reputation for outstanding teaching, care and guidance for our current students and this excellence continues into the sixth form where students are taught by staff who know them well. Small classes for many of the subjects offered are another tremendous benefit.

What is the timetable like?

Students are registered in all lessons and are expected to take responsibility for their own study time on and off site. Most students will take 3 or 4 A level or BTEC subjects in Year 12 and 3 in Year 13. The student timetable includes enrichment activities and independent study periods.

Are students allowed to bring phones to school?

Yes, however, we insist that mobile phones do not disrupt lessons. 

Are students allowed to bring laptops to school?

Yes, there is secure internet and wireless access in the new Sixth Form building.  We also have a suite of chromebooks that can be booked out by Sixth Formers during private study time.
