We are the largest school Sixth Form in Guildford and with 450+ students we are able to offer a broad and challenging curriculum. This allows us to offer a wide choice of over 40 subjects at A level or equivalent and, combined with the excellent pastoral care and numerous enrichment opportunities available we believe this makes George Abbot a great place to be a Sixth Former.
The Sixth Form at George Abbot has an excellent record of achievement at Advanced Level and in October 2006 OfSTED graded the Sixth Form as outstanding. Following excellent results this year, we are confident that we remain so.
We have seen the smooth introduction of the new A2 level specifications last year and an exceptional number of our students achieved the A* grade this year. We now have students studying the Extended Project Qualification, and Open University Degree units alongside their A level subjects and we now offer greater BTEC provision with the introduction of new subjects at Level 3 and 2.
In addition to studying your chosen A level subjects you will also follow our graduation programme that allows students to develop their wider academic knowledge and acquire transferable skills essential to both employment and further academic study. This ensures you leave the Sixth Form at George Abbot fully equipped for success in your chosen future.As a Sixth Form Student at George Abbot you will still receive daily support from a tutor. This will form the basis of our system for monitoring your progress through your Sixth Form Studies and allow for the provision of advice and guidance on your future. We will work with you to set challenging personal targets and provide the support and guidance necessary to help you achieve them.
We would also like you to be fully involved with the life of the Sixth Form and wider school community and will promote opportunities for you to do this.We enjoy the excellent facilities of our purpose-built Sixth Form centre designed to provide you with the learning environment that will allow you to strive to achieve your best through working in partnership with your teachers, tutors, and parents.
We expect you to be motivated and driven to succeed in your studies, but we also want you to enjoy yourself during the two years you spend with us. We believe that we can offer you the best teaching, the best environment, and the best opportunities available to Sixth Form students.
We look forward to working with you in the future to help you achieve your potential and realise your aspirations for the adult life ahead of you. We hope that George Abbot Sixth Form will be the place you come to make this happen.
