Headmistress

Making the right decision about where to study can open the door to a world of exciting opportunities. Supporting students through the challenges that A-levels present, seeing them succeed academically and develop as well rounded individuals is highly rewarding. We take pride in the results our students achieve as well as the sense of community that exists between students and their teachers. I look forward to welcoming you to become part of Sixth Form in September.

Head of Sixth Form

About us

We are a mixed Sixth Form college centrally located in Southampton offering mainly traditional academic A levels.

As part of an 11-18 school we offer a very different Sixth Form experience to other colleges in the local area. Our college is small in comparison and we concentrate mainly on academic A levels. As such, we are able to give our students a great deal of one-to-one attention as they journey through their A levels. Class sizes are very small in comparison to most local colleges with an average of between 11 and 14 students in AS level classes each year.

We are a close and strong learning community where young people feel motivated to learn and aspire to achieve the highest standards. We are the only Sixth Form College locally to achieve both the highest rate of progress for students and the highest average grade per entry, so we help you add the most value to your GCSE grades at A level. Each year around 95% of our students apply and move on to Higher Education, largely to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities.

Within St Anne’s the Catholic ethos helps our students develop personally, socially, emotionally and spiritually whatever their religion or background. This ethos encourages a strong community within the Sixth Form and across the age spectrum of the school. Each year numerous charities benefit from the work that St Anne’s sixth formers do as they lead various fund raising activities.

Tutor - Each student is part of a tutor group made up of Year 12 and Year 13 students. The tutor works with them closely for their whole time in the Sixth Form, seeing them most days, and as such they are the first port of call when a student is facing challenges. They are also the people who write the reference for a student’s university application so the relationship and understanding between them is important.

Head of Sixth Form - With small numbers of students in the College the Head of Sixth Form, alongside the tutor, can get to know the students personally and support them in their studies. This personal touch is vital in helping young people to develop into confident and happy adults.

Subject Teachers - The relationship between a student and his or her subject teacher has a different feel to it than that of one in the lower years of the school. The teachers at St Anne’s are experienced and subject specialist staff with regards to Sixth Form teaching and they take great pride in the development of their Sixth Form students.

Careers Advisor - St Anne’s has specialist careers advisors to guide you through the choices available after A levels. Off-site activities back up this advice with various visits to higher education establishments to help you to make the right choices.

Financial Support - Financial support is available to those who need it during their time at St Anne’s Sixth Form. The cost of travel is also paid to all students travelling to the college from a distance of 3 miles or more.
