Welcome to Sixth Form

St. John’s Senior School offers an exceptional post-16 educational experience.

Our sixth form gives you the benefits of highly qualified and inspiring teachers, small class sizes, and excellent facilities on our beautiful campus.

Students from a variety of countries, schools and backgrounds join St. John’s as their stepping stone to world-class universities. Academically curious and motivated to be the best they can be, our sixth formers enjoy two years of challenging study – alongside everything else St. John’s has to offer.

St. John’s provides a warm and friendly environment where you will be made welcome and encouraged to truly fulfil your academic potential. Our sixth-form students have access to quiet study spaces, a common room, and our ample grounds and sporting facilities.

We hope that this prospectus will be of help in supporting you, and that you will be able to visit us in person to see why St. John’s is such a special place.

Applications and admissions

Every year, up to 30 students join our sixth form. The application process opens in May and the selection process takes place in June. The application deadline is usually in mid-September when a pupil is in UK School Year 11. All applications received will be considered and we will then shortlist pupils to be invited to St. John’s for an interview.

Applicants should be of a high academic standard (ideally gaining a minimum of  9 GCSEs at Grade A-B or an overseas equivalent) and who are also likely to make a notable contribution to school life, such as in sport or in the arts.

Our admission process is thorough. We are confident that, if we offer you a place in our sixth form, you will enjoy your time with us, flourish academically, and be ready to join the university of your choice.
