The majority of pupils who join WHSB in Year 7 choose to remain with us for a full seven years with the final two as a member of our vibrant co-educational Sixth Form.
The School is proud of the achievements and attitudes of its Sixth Form Students in many ways. Public examination results are strong, students typically take pride in going beyond a superficial understanding of concepts, and many take their learning far beyond the syllabus. Students participate in and lead a wide range of school events and clubs - academic, artistic, sporting, technical, social and entrepreneurial. Students are actively involved in supporting each other, supporting the younger members of the school, and in valuable community work.
In the Sixth Form, students enjoy greater independence and dedicated facilities. They develop their leadership potential by taking on positions of responsibility and working with younger pupils. They make a valuable contribution to the community within School and more broadly, by volunteering their services as part of our enrichment programme. Many demonstrate initiative by setting up clubs and societies, both for their peers and for those in younger years. The Sixth Form is at the heart of WHSB and community spirit is at the heart of the Sixth Form.
Academically, students in the Sixth Form achieve at an impressively high level. They work hard in subjects in which they have found enjoyment and their effort brings rewards. Many progress to the most prestigious universities including both Oxford and Cambridge. With aspiration comes motivation, and with motivation comes success.
The next Sixth Form Open Evening will be held in November 2016.
