Registration & Tutor time
Registration takes place at 8.35 with a House tutor, one of a highly experienced Sixth Form team who will oversee and monitor each girl’s progress throughout her time at STAHS. On two or three occasions each week this will be an opportunity to discuss academic progress, personal development and all matters pertaining to university applications. This is also a time to be informed of important Sixth Form specific deadlines or opportunities.
Assemblies occur two or three times per week. One of these will be taken by the Headmistress and is a formal occasion involving the whole school. Friday assemblies are House-based, run by the House Officers for the benefit of the rest of the House. Occasional Year 12 or Year 13 assemblies will focus on matters concerning life in the Sixth Form.
The department of Art & Design at STAHS encourages work in which emotional and intellectual content combine with an understanding and appreciation of materials and processes in ways which are authentic, engaging, personal and honest.
Girls use the Sixth Form Common Room which includes their own catering facilities
Studying Religious Studies, Philosophy and Ethics in the Sixth Form allows students to engage in questions surrounding the meaning of our existence and the variety of philosophical, ethical, religious and cultural responses to these.
The study of Government and Politics at STAHS is as fascinating as it is eye-opening. Students are introduced to a world which is new to them in terms of academic study; a world of power, principles and public policy.
Sixth Form can use their own catering facilities, the Starbucks coffee shop in the Rotunda or can have lunch with the rest of the school in the Dining Room
The study of A Level History at STAHS is both intellectually stimulating and utterly intriguing. Students are encouraged to interrogate the past through the study of contemporary sources and the interpretations of different historians.
The Chemistry department aims to enable students to experience the wonder of discovery through their depth of understanding of the subject. Our highly experienced, committed and motivated teaching staff inspire confidence, allowing girls to hypothesise and explore new concepts independently.
Daily coaches run from surrounding districts in the catchment area. The schedule varies according to demand. Late coaches run Monday – Thursday at 5.10 pm to enable girls to attend one of the many after school activities on offer.
