Welcome to AGSB Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form offers a first-class education for bright young men and future leaders. Expectations and aspirations are high and are reflected in our consistently outstanding results and value added, which place us amongst the top 1% of Sixth Forms in the country. Our students benefit from these high expectations and support each other to achieve them. They similarly support each other to achieve high aspirations and in 2021 over 50% of our students applied for early entry courses, such as those offered by the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, as well as courses in Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Science. All our students benefit from equal support to secure the destinations of their choice and have also gone on to secure a range of degree level apprenticeships with companies such as Dyson, PWC and Jaguar Land Rover. 

The curriculum and extra-curriculum offering is designed to develop a range of soft skills that will help them develop into successful leaders and life-long learners. We support our students in dealing with the academic rigour of A-Levels, as well as adjusting to more independent learning styles, by ensuring that every student benefits from one-to-one mentoring and has a range of pastoral structures in place should they face any challenges as they transition to adulthood. In further supporting this transition we also provide supervised private study throughout the day for all our Year 12 students and a range of different private study areas for our Year 13 students. 

Our aim throughout is to lay firm foundations for each and every student, encouraging them to be self-confident, healthy and enquiring young men, whilst displaying the virtues of tolerance and respect. 

Best wishes
T Murray
Head of Sixth Form
