Katharine Lady Berkeley’s Sixth Form provides excellent teaching, a good working environment and sound guidance on all aspects of post GCSE studies.
The last three full OFSTED reports (2008, 2012 and 2017) have rated the achievement of students and quality of provision in our sixth form as being outstanding.
In our last inspection, in May 2017, the comments made about our sixth form included:
- Leadership, provision and the quality of teaching in the sixth form are outstanding.
- Sixth form students set a fine example for pupils in the rest of the school. They are self-assured and confident, but also embody qualities such as modesty and humility. They, like other pupils in the school, are caring and altruistic. As such, students are highly effective ambassadors for the school.
The number of students completing their courses and going on to higher education, employment or training is higher than the national average. This is because students enjoy their courses and respond well to the teaching they receive. It is also because they have high aspirations and benefit from strong support that helps them to achieve highly.
Many of our students go onto higher education and we have a strong tradition of students entering Oxbridge.
