Welcome to Forest Hill School - Sydenham and Forest Hill Sixth Form
Welcome to SFH6, the joint Sixth Form of Sydenham and Forest Hill: two successful and popular schools working together in Post 16 education since the early 1970s.
SFH6 is a dynamic and forward looking Sixth Form with very high standards. We ask our students to take responsibility for their own learning and we believe in the rights of all to achieve at the highest possible level.
We value aspiration, drive, energy and ambition. We expect our students to be motivated, focused and willing to contribute at school, in the community and beyond. We challenge them to become well balanced young people who make good decisions and respond to change with confidence and optimism.
All Year 11 students attending the Forest Hill and Sydenham Schools are able to apply for places at SFH6. In addition, we reserve a number of places for students from other schools. Further details of how to apply for a place at SFH6 are available on this website and from the schools.
SFH6 is a diverse community of students from many different cultures and backgrounds, learning and working together in an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect. We have an ethos that encourages our students to aspire beyond their own expectations of what is possible. While we value high academic achievement, and an increasing numbers of our students are gaining places at top research universities, we also value student progress at all levels and have had students who have moved successfully from Level 1 through Level 2 to Level 3 and onto to higher education.
Each person is known, valued and supported as an individual within a comprehensive system of pastoral care. Sixth Form Tutors have a central role in supporting students' academic progress and personal development. SFH6 students are expected to contribute to their schools and communities. We encourage them to behave as role models with maturity and consideration fro others. SFH6 has an ethos of partnership, collaboration and cooperation between the two schools, their staff, governors, students and parents/carers with everyone encouraged to take a personal interest in our continual success.
SFH6 is an inclusive 6th form where all students are supported to achieve their maximum potential both academically and socially.
SFH6 admits students with a range of special educational needs and disabilities provided they meet the entry requirements of the course. Students are well supported on a range of Level 3 and some Level 2 courses through appropriate differentiation, regular monitoring, exam access arrangements, a strong pastoral structure and access to a range of support such as high quality counselling and a careers advisor.
