The 6th form continues to increase in numbers and is a vibrant part of the school. St Saviour’s & St Olave’s School has a strong tradition for academic excellence and pastoral care. We aim to guide the efforts and achievements of all our Sixth Form students towards continuous improvement, helping them to reach their potential and succeed in gaining places at Higher Education Institutes of their first choice.
Each student’s progress is carefully monitored by their form tutor, and overseen by the Director of Learning Key Stage 5.
Most subjects that are offered at Key Stage 4 are also offered in the 6th form, with the addition of Applied Business, Psychology, Philosophy and Ethics, Photography, Sociology and Travel and Tourism. All students receive an individually structured timetable.
Our Sixth Form students are empowered to take control of their own learning, enabling them to maximise their capabilities. All students will work at an intellectually challenging, sophisticated level.
In order to ensure that all students have equal access to ICT, including at home, the school provides every Year 12 student with a laptop computer.
As with all our students, there is a wealth of enrichment activities available to students in the Sixth Form: attendance at subject-specific lectures and conferences held in London and elsewhere; residential trips to universities such as Cambridge, Sussex and Exeter; cultural visits to the ballet and the theatre etc.; first aid courses; international study visits; summer schools; visiting speakers and so on. Sixth Formers also help younger students with their reading as part of the Special Educational Needs Department’s Reading Partners Scheme. Year 13 students plan and organise their own Leavers’ Ball which is held in July. Recent prestigious venues have included The Cafe Royale and Selfridge’s Hotel.
