The Sixth Form at CGS provides a range of A levels that will enable students to progress on to virtually any course in higher education. With very strong pass rates over the recent years we hope that all students will fulfil their potential and go on to their first choice of higher education course.
Of course The Sixth Form at CGS is not only about work – ask any present or past student! We would like to think that our students enjoy their time with us taking the opportunity to participate in the wider life of the sixth form, developing independence and responsibility in the process.
ALL THAT WE ASK OF STUDENTS IS THAT THEY SHOW COMMITMENT IN THEIR CONTRIBUTION SO THAT THEIR TIME HERE IS PROFITABLE.
Sixth form life at CGS provides students with a number of opportunities to develop and improve as young adults.
Casterby House provides the Sixth form with its own common rooms, a kitchen, careers library and study rooms. There is an ongoing commitment to improving and adapting the facilities available.
If you believe you have something to offer, there is the Sixth form Council which acts as a forum for the expression of ideas and suggestions. There is also a Sixth Form Ball Committee which organises a number of events throughout the year which culminate in the Sixth Form Ball in May.
In addition you may enjoy the challenge of being a prefect, carrying out general duties around the school. You can also assist form tutors on a day to day basis, or you can help in the library or volunteer in some subjects to help mentor younger students experiencing learning difficulties. You will also have the opportunity to be a House official, who play a major part in organising and preparing younger students for House sporting, music and drama events. Sixth form students can also train to become pastoral mentors.
On Wednesday afternoons there are a number of activities. We offer a variety of sporting events including some fixtures. Recreational activities include fitness and gym activities There is also the opportunity to gain work experience, to carry out voluntary work in the community or to take part in the Young Enterprise Scheme. In addition there is Performing Arts Leadership Award and the Level 2 Sports Leadership Award. Activities are reviewed in response to suggestions and preferences.
Throughout your time as a sixth form student CGS you will be encouraged to contribute as fully as possible to the life of the school and the wider community.
