About us

About Us

Beyond our enviable academic record (Ofsted has rated us ‘Outstanding’ for over a decade), we are genuinely proud of the destinations our students secure on leaving us in Year 13. Over the past three years, an average of 79% of IB students gained their first choice of university (and most of those are secured early in July when IB results come out, beating the rush in August). We thrive on our consistent success in securing the best destinations for our students, from prestigious work-based placements to a whole range of universities, including many of the most prestigious universities in the world; our Oxbridge acceptance rate is the highest of any school in Bexley.


Yet every visitor to our school first comments upon the warmth of the pupil-staff relationships in our vibrant community before celebrating our outstanding academic achievement. The outcomes speak for themselves but to get a sense of the exciting buzz of the school community that we enjoy you need to visit us.


The IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) provides a challenging yet personalised curriculum which prepares young people for both further education and work in a rapidly-evolving world. The Sixth Form leads the rest of the school in developing the ‘soft’ skills and personal qualities that prepare our pupils for life as responsible global citizens, beyond examinations: independent learning, organisation, presentation skills, problem-solving, leadership, compassion, tolerance and resilience.


Explore our website to find out how our Sixth Form encourages all students to reach their full academic potential and develop into considerate young adults who are in a position to pursue their aspirations and interests as responsible members of our society.
