Scholarship

The values of SCHOLARSHIP, ADVENTURE and INTEGRITY underpin all aspects of our school’s life, and the Sixth Form is no exception.

Scholarship in the Sixth Form means that students have the space and time to develop their love of learning still further. Students are encouraged to explore their chosen subjects deeply and to explore beyond the syllabus. They are well-supported in this by subject specialists, and by the resources of a dedicated Sixth Form library and librarian. Whether exploring ‘Wonder’ or ‘Consent’ as part of the ‘Perspectives’ programme, engaging with poetry recited by the visiting Poet Laureate, or delivering a lecture on a chosen EPQ topic, the students in the STAHS Sixth Form take control of their own learning.

Integrity in the Sixth Form means that students are encouraged to be the person they are.  The STAHS Sixth Form is a diverse, inclusive and dynamic community where each student is known individually and respected deeply.  Whether it’s the student body arranging fundraising events, taking a lead on organising a week-long series of events for International Women’s Day or celebrating the annual STAHS Sixth Form Pride event, our students are outward-looking, philanthropic and with a developed social conscience, desirous of making the world, at home and abroad, a better place.

Adventure in the Sixth Form means that students are encouraged to throw themselves into as wide a range of extra-curricular activities as they want and to make the most of every opportunity that being at STAHS affords.  They take risks, expand their horizons and have a global outlook.
