Most pupils who join WHSB in Year 7 choose to remain with us for seven years, with the final two as a member of our vibrant, co-educational Sixth Form. Approximately 50 students from other schools join our Sixth Form each year.
The School is proud of the achievements and attitudes of its Sixth Form students. Public examination results are strong; students take pride in surpassing a superficial understanding of concepts, and many take their learning far beyond the syllabus. Students participate in and lead various 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 the School and in our locality by volunteering their services as part of our enrichment programme. Many demonstrate initiative by setting up clubs and societies for their peers and those in their 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.
