Sixth form gives a grounding for uni

SIXTH FORM life at Leighton Park is different from that at many other schools.

SIXTH FORM life at Leighton Park is different from that at many other schools.

With its wonderful facilities, stunning parkland, tutorial-style teaching and distinctive atmosphere it feels more like a university campus. Students look back on it as a great preparation for university and beyond, whether they are studying for the International Baccalaureate diploma (IB) or A levels.

Leighton Park provides the perfect place for young adults to realise their full potential as individuals, whether joining in with the activities in the boarding houses or working and relaxing in its Sixth Form Centre.

Students choose between the IB, an internationally recognised qualification, or A levels.

All students are challenged academically, and those studying IB acquire intellectual breadth and depth, an ability to work and think independently and learn how to manage their time.

It’s not just about exams though, as the sixth form offers many co-curricular opportunities for those with a passion for drama, music or sport. Our students not only go on to top universities, but also to RADA and the Guildhall and Trinity College. Leighton Park is well known for its co-curricular enrichment, including the widely-acclaimed Extended Project Qualification and also its high quality academic and acclaimed pastoral support and guidance.

If you want to have a look round the school, please call the admissions office on 0118 987 9600, or find out more about the IB, A levels or anything else about Leighton Park by visiting the website

The next Sixth Form New Horizons open evening is on October 14. Contact the admissions office for more information by phone, or alternatively email
