Welcome to Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form girls are mature, confident young women who enjoy life in a school environment.  They benefit from small class sizes at A level and a breadth of academic and creative courses.

There is also the option of enriching A Level studies with the Extended Project Qualification.

There are a huge number of activities on offer which girls are encouraged to pursue outside of the classroom: The Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, The Youth Speaks Competition, Model United Nations and Engineering schemes as well as numerous sporting, musical and community activities. In fact, we find that the main challenge for our Sixth Form students is fitting it all in!

As the most senior members of the School community, our students flourish and take advantage of fantastic leadership opportunities.  They have the opportunity to be members of the Head Girl team but they can also lead Houses and be Prefects or Peer Mentors to students lower down the School.  The Sixth Form Team prepare the girls for life beyond Alderley Edge School for Girls; whether that be in the transition to university, completing UCAS applications and preparing for universities, practising for specific University entrance exams such as LNAT, BMAT, UKCAT, STEP and Oxbridge admissions tests or going on gap years or apprenticeships.  Our girls feel supported as individuals as they prepare to leave our gates.

As Sixth Formers, students enjoy considerable freedom and privileges. Students can go out of school at lunchtime to enjoy the delights of Alderley village and, potentially, go home early if they have a study period at the end of the day. Students have free time during the day and have open access to our recently re-developed coffee bar and Common Room.

We are proud of our Sixth Form and we have an increasing number of girls joining us from outside of the Alderley Edge School for Girls’ community; young women who recognise the benefits of single-sex education before moving into the wider world. Such students are given a very warm welcome; making friends easily and integrating quickly into the School.

Girls leave the Sixth Form well-equipped and excited for the future that lies ahead, taking with them a host of memories of their time with us.

Pastoral Care

Girls in the Sixth Form are allocated to a Tutor Group for the duration of their Sixth Form experience. Groups are relatively small which means time and support can be provided to each individual. Tutors are specialists in a wide variety of subject areas and build excellent working relationships with the girls during these final and very important years of school – it is vital for students to be supported both emotionally and academically.

The Head and Assistant Head of Sixth Form, Mr Russell and Ms Johnson, work closely with the tutors to ensure the girls receive all the necessary help and support they need.
