Redland High School for Girls
"... [the pupils'] personal development is promoted by positive relationships with their teachers and each other.They communicate easily, and talk, explain and discuss in a clear, confident manner."
you join our Sixth Form you will notice that the relationship between teaching
staff and students shifts into a more adult phase and becomes one of
partnership and support as you work towards achieving the best examination
results you can.
We aim to ensure that your experience of Sixth Form life is unique and memorable.
We provide an outstanding academic education. The Sixth Form team work hard to ensure that you leave us not only with the best possible A level results, but with a secure knowledge of your strengths and abilities so that you can rise to life's challenges and make a positive contribution to wider society.
We pride ourselves on the inclusive, supportive atmosphere in the Sixth Form. If you are joining us from elsewhere, settling in will be easy because, for all our Sixth Form students, it is a time of change and self-discovery.
Our small teaching and tutor groups ensure that you will benefit from a high level of pastoral care. As you build the foundations for the next important and exciting phase of your education, it's good to know you are in very capable hands.
There are numerous positions of responsibility and extra-curricular activities open to you in the Sixth Form. These provide an opportunity for you to develop your leadership and organisational skills, qualities which are valued as much as academic results both here at Redland High School and in the outside world.
We are ambitious for our students. The Head of Careers and the Sixth Form team will advise and guide you as you make decisions about your future career and help you prepare an excellent Higher Education application.
Success in the Sixth Form requires a balance between hard work and time for self-development and fun - we are experienced at helping students achieve that balance and look forward to working with you.
Come and meet some of our current Sixth Form students and ask them what life is like in Redland High Sixth. You will find them friendly, frank and full of confidence!
