The Sixth Form Centre is a cross between
being at school and being at university.
The large, comfortable common room sees girls catching up on current affairs (a large clutch of newspapers is delivered daily), stilling their minds with some work on communal jigsaws, discussing their latest essay or just curling up on the sofas and enjoying some conversation and coffee.
The smaller common rooms and ‘brew rooms’ are also a welcome space for friends to meet or individuals to take time out from study. The Centre has computer suites and seminar rooms, and Day Girls have their own study areas for use during free periods and breaks and after school.
Day Girls and boarders all make good use of the kitchen with its toaster, oven, fridge, smoothie maker and waffle maker. Sixth Form Boarders have study bedrooms upstairs in the Centre, with rooms sleeping one or two interspersed with ‘brew rooms’ for refreshments. Boarding and Academic staff are always on hand and many live in-house. The Head of Sixth Form and the Higher Ed & Professional Guidance Coordinator both have offices in the Centre and they have an open door policy so that girls can drop in for advice, support or just a chat at any time.
