At CRGS Sixth Form, students have the opportunity to gain independence and develop, both academically and socially.
Over two-thirds of students join the Sixth Form from approximately 40 different schools, with the remaining third joining from its Main School (Years 7-11).
CRGS takes great pride in being a welcoming, positive and inclusive place to study.
Kate Johnston, Head of Sixth Form, recommends: “The two most important aspects to success at A Level are, firstly, choosing the right place to study and, secondly, making an informed choice to study subjects in which you both perform well and enjoy.”
The best way to make these decisions is to do your research - attend CRGS Sixth Form’s Virtual Open Evening on Wednesday, November 4.
You will have the opportunity to listen to a presentation from headteacher James Keulemans and Mrs Johnston.
There will also be access to subject videos for each of the 26 A Level subjects as well a virtual tour of the site and an opportunity to attend a live webinar with a panel of students and staff.
One of the biggest challenges of A Level study is working independently outside of lessons.
It is therefore important that students have access to high-quality private study spaces throughout the day. CRGS Sixth Form is fortunate to be able to offer a choice of study environments to suit both silent and co-operative study.
The modern, well-stocked Library is a sanctuary for those seeking a quiet, purposeful place for individual work with current journals, books, revision guides and e-resources.
Laptops and iPads can be borrowed, although students are very welcome to bring their own devices and make use of the free Wi-Fi. In addition, the bright and airy Quad is available for quiet collaborative study and is equipped with PCs for student use throughout the day.
When not in lessons or undertaking independent study, students are able to relax and enjoy the company of their friends in a large dining area, where they have the opportunity to buy a snack, a hot drink or freshly-cooked meal.
Sixth formers are also free to leave the site when they are not in lessons or studying.
CRGS Sixth Form offers students the “best of both worlds”; outstanding teaching and excellent academic standards in a supportive and stimulating environment, with the opportunity to develop and grow in preparation for their next step, adds the college.
