Welcome to Archbishop Tenison's CofE High School

The Sixth Form years are a unique opportunity to learn academically, develop personally and socially, and discuss your calling and way ahead for your future life.

It is thrilling to be able to invite you to join our close-knit, high achieveing Sixth Form here at Archbishop Tenison's. 

We are righly proud of the great contribution our Sixth Formers make to the whole community. 

We recognise that every Sixth Form student has to work hard, rise to considerable challenges in their studies and make the most of many extra-curricular opportunities too. We also hope that by pursuing your post-16 studies at this school, you will develop not just into a great student, but also into a person of great character who can make a difference to the wider world in which we live.

About us

Founded by Thomas Tenison, Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1714, the school was designed to give "ten poor boys and ten poor girls" a good basic education to help them earn an honest living and grow in the Christian faith. Today it is an 11-18 voluntary aided, mixed, Anglican comprehensive school within the Diocese of Southwark and the Borogh of Croydon, with Foundation Governors appointed by the Church of England.

Archbishop Tenison's has an academic Sixth Form with an excellent track record. With around 275 students, the Sixt Form is large enough to offer a wide range of A Levels and extra-curricular activities, while still being small enough for us to know all our students individually and offer the support and guidance they need over their two years of study. We have students from over 50 different schools and welcome applicants from all backgrounds. Archbishop Tenison's is an Anglican foundation, so students are expected to be sympathetic to the values which underlie our Christian ethos.

Learner success

Archbishop Tenison's has a strong academic tradition, with a history of producing good results, and many of our students progress to the top universities.
