Welcome to our Sixth Form

Bentley Wood High School Sixth Form is a popular choice amongst the Harrow Collegiate and is rapidly growing. The Sixth Form is a vibrant and happy community, which aims to build upon the outstanding progress our girls make in the lower school.

In the Sixth Form, girls experience a variety of exciting opportunities to challenge themselves intellectually, as well as help them to develop as individuals. Your daughter will be encouraged to use these two years as a stepping-stone towards the greater freedom of university and adult life.

In the Sixth Form, a wide range of A level courses are offered; taught by well-qualified and enthusiastic subject specialists who have a track record of delivering success.  As the new style A levels are introduced, it is likely that students will normally study three A levels in the Sixth Form, accompanied by the Extended Project Qualification.

At Bentley Wood High School, we offer a lot more than academic excellence.  During PSHE lessons our girls attend seminars tutorials, and educational visits covering issues such as effective study skills, techniques for learning, examination technique and preparing for interviews. Additionally, our Social Mobility programme supports students to become successful in achieving degrees and graduate entry jobs. Whilst for our brightest girls, we have a dedicated programme to support Russell Group university applications; including Oxford and Cambridge.

We also offer help to students who chose to follow an apprenticeship route after A levels.  Apprentices work as employees with experienced staff to gain job-specific skills, whilst working towards a number of qualifications and gaining experience. All whilst getting paid.

The Head of Sixth Form, individual tutors and subject teachers play an important part in providing appropriate advice and guidance in supporting each girl’s academic and personal progress.
