    • Welcome to the Sixth Form

      We are happy to welcome you to your first year of voluntary education. Our philosophy here is simple; it is student focused and individual. We believe that one size doesn't fit all and we work to ensure that every one achieves their targets, whether it be Oxbridge entrance or an apprenticeship. Every student has different skills and different aims and we are here to help you achieve them, whatever they may be.

      KS Sixth Form is designed to help you reach your potential in both your academic and social life. Most of all you can expect to be able to study in a pleasant and safe environment. We are lucky to have a brand new sixth form centre where there is both a canteen area with a coffee shop and also a quiet, supervised study area.

      The Sixth Form is integrated into the life of the whole school community and Sixth Formers are expected to act as role models towards younger students. Our aim is to produce well-balanced, responsible young adults fully prepared to take their place in Higher Education, the professions and the Jewish Community.
