FAQ

  • Is there a Sixth Form dress code. If so what is it? 

Please click here for our dress code. At SFH6 students are expected to dress appropriately for a school where most students wear a uniform.  We do not expect formal business dress, but neither do we expect clothes that are too casual. We feel that it is important that the students learn to choose to dress appropriately in different work and social situations. 

  • What time does school begin/end? 

 

8.50am - 3.20pm Monday - Friday but we are usually open from 8 until 5.30 for students to use the study

 

  • How is the day structured? 

​The day is divided into 6 periods. Periods 1 and 2 before break, Periods 3 and 4 before lunch and then Periods 5 and 6 after lunch. If students need to move sites for a lesson this will be at break time only. Year 12 students are expected to be in school all day and to use the study areas in their independent study periods (usually 5 each week).

Entry requirements? 

For A/AS Level: Five grade Cs or above including English Language and Maths and usually a B grade in the subjects you intend to study. For more detail see the course details.

Yes - some students may be entitled to the 16-19 Bursary Fund as follows:

  1. An entitlement of £1,200pa for any student in care or coming out of care, or individually in receipt of income support or a Disability Living Allowance.
  2. Students in receipt of Free School Meals are entitled to apply for the Bursary allowance which is paid half termly dependent on good records of attendance and punctuality.

 

  • How much help do you give students to apply to university?

All SFH6 students take part in a UCAS preparation programme which begins in Year 12. This involves attending University visits, taking part in workshops run by University student ambassadors and admissions officers, support in writing personal statements and preparing for interviews. In addition we run a support programme for students applying for Medicine or Oxbridge.
