The Sixth Form Godolphin&Latymer


Welcome to the Sixth Form Although what follows is only a smattering of words and images, we hope that it gives you a real sense of the essence of the experience we aim to provide for all students.

When you enter the Sixth Form, you will embark upon two of the most stimulating and rewarding years of your school career. As you shake off the necessary routine and structure of the main school years, take on new challenges and develop your confidence and independence, you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

A level and IB courses have different rhythms and demands while enthusiastic artists, musicians, actresses, sportswomen, embryonic engineers, doctors or historians all have their individual sparky perspectives.

You will find that mixing and bonding with new groups of students in this vibrant atmosphere, whether formally in lessons or informally in the sixth form area, is extremely enriching, often in surprising and entertaining ways.

Inspiration

Passion

Both A level and IB courses offer challenges and rewards well beyond the limits of GCSE, feeding intellectual curiosity. In addition to the excellent guidance provided in lessons, the school library is impressively stocked and the librarians delight in advising on the best sources of information for individual research. They are an invaluable resource in themselves.

In smaller classes, there are plenty of opportunities for participation and you will be inspired to further your understanding by the scholarship of your teachers and the enthusiasm and commitment of your peers.

You may already have a passion that drives you, whether in a traditionally academic area, in Art, Drama, Music or Sport. We encourage girls to explore and develop their particular interests as well as exposing themselves to new experiences. A lecture, extracurricular activity or voluntary work can take girls in unexpected and life changing directions.

Alice It's great to be part of such an inclusive and welcoming environment. The community spirit of the Sixth Form is overwhelming – we are one big family! It has been lovely to get to know and become friends with the most unlikely set of people with the most diverse backgrounds.The increased amount of work has bonded us all together in ways I had never imagined. Not only is

the student atmosphere great, my relationships with my teachers are brilliant. Lessons are not just about simply learning, everything is discussion based and your opinion really matters! Having done GCSEs and knowing that I would be taking AS level examinations within a few months, I expected the Sixth Form to provide the hardest and most

challenging years so far. Although this is certainly true, they have been challenging in the best kind of way - with so many opportunities to take on responsibility and do new things. I have found myself immersed in the school's life and am enjoying every second of it.

Achievement Balance

Humour

All sixth formers at Godolphin and Latymer are talented individuals who excel in refreshingly different ways and we respect and celebrate a broad range of impressive achievements. At the same time, your teachers will work closely with you to help you develop your study skills so that you can fulfil your potential in all areas.

There is a lot to be said for laughter in the learning process. Alongside witty exchanges with friends in the common room, serious classroom study will also present highly entertaining and memorable moments.

Maintaining a good work/life balance is extremely important for success. And when stresses and strains do arise, whether these come from pressure of work, social lives beyond school, from home or within yourself, we try to be supportive without being intrusive so that you can manage the situation with dignity and confidence.

Flossie The Sixth Form at Godolphin and Latymer is a great experience. Being a sixth former allows for a lot more freedom, both in and outside of lessons. Having the common room is fantastic and has meant that I interact a lot more with many different people in both sixth form years, whilst also having the option to work in a calm and comfortable environment. The

teaching is very different and much more relaxed: the smaller classes have heightened my interest in certain subjects and I have formed great relationships with my teachers. When I was looking at new Sixth Forms, Godolphin really caught my eye as a school where you can be whoever you want with no one

passing judgement. The fact that IB is offered also helped with my decision, and since arriving, the atmosphere and support system has allowed me to develop and mature as a person at my own pace, as well as helping me to develop a sense of self-motivation.

Freedom

Reflection

Whether you are new to Godolphin and Latymer or have grown up through the school, you will find the Sixth Form a liberating experience. The absence of uniform and the spacious sixth form area enable you to express your individuality more freely and to perfect your personal approach to study.

We encourage all girls to reflect upon and discuss their interests and strengths as students and individual members and leaders of the school. Excellent support is provided by tutors throughout and by the Higher Education and Careers department as you begin to consider your future.

Identity One of the most exciting aspects of Godolphin and Latymer is the diverse nature of the school community and this can really enrich debate in sixth form classes. Our students may have a distinctive confidence but this is rooted in each girl’s sense of her personal identity which has full scope to flourish in the Sixth Form.

Dynamism

Innovation

Interaction

Godolphin and Latymer is a dynamic place. We review and adapt our programmes of study, extra-curricular activities and positions of responsibility so that girls will be well equipped for success in the modern world.

Sixth form students can really contribute to developing the opportunities available. Their responses and suggestions are highly valued and many new initiatives, for example the Politics club and the activities of the Green Team, have been driven by their energy and inventiveness.

Sixth formers work together with staff, younger girls and the broader school community, forging rewarding and productive relationships in a range of activities from the Head Girls Team to Debating and Amnesty International. The vertical tutor group system enables lower sixth students to learn from the experience of others, and the upper sixth to reflect upon and take pride in all that they have achieved in a short but busy time. You will make new firm and lasting friendships.
