Sixth Form Academic Life

One of the most important markers in a student’s time at Cranbrook is when boarders and day-pupils alike enter the school’s Sixth Form. This is a period of change and choices which may well shape their future lives.

We have a specific approach to teaching A Level at the school – one that is backed up by tailor-made resources, dedicated facilities and an enhanced partnership with some 320 students and their parents. In purely academic terms, the school offers Sixth Formers extensive support first hand – helping them choose the most appropriate courses, monitoring progress and readying them for the ‘pressure-point’ exams.  We will not let students slip through and we are proud of our extensive support plans and systemic assessment so that all students maximise their potential whilst here.

Such guidance is part of the school’s commitment to excellence and recent results bear witness to the success of our methods. However, whilst we are justifiably proud of our record, we do not believe in constant cramming where every road leads to the exam-hall. Teaching for example, becomes more collaborative in the Sixth Form as we encourage students to develop the self-reliance which will serve them well in the wider world.

Finally, of course, having fun remains a key part of our ‘unofficial curriculum’ as A Levels approach. Individual well-being is integral to the school’s ethos and we know that happy minds and healthy bodies produce better exam results than those weighed down by the worries of the world.
