The St Marylebone CE Sixth Form is a thriving example of how great education can be. Our culture of achievement is fuelled by a love of learning, grounded in Christian values and driven by a dynamic creativity and a joyful sense of community.
Our students excel academically and evolve into young adults of whom we are really proud. They rise to our high expectations, benefit from outstanding teaching, are motivated by each other and passionate subject specialist teachers and develop the independent learning skills they need for university and life. Our staff both inspire and support – and believe that all students can achieve.
We enjoy all the opportunities of an inner London setting, making the most of the city’s arts, culture, business and enterprise – yet the sixth form site itself is a haven of creativity, learning and reflection. Our facilities include specialist science labs, art, design, technology and textiles rooms, two libraries, a suite of music classrooms, practice rooms, sports facilities, dance studios, a recording studio and subject classrooms with e-learning technology, a theatre and assembly hall – all housed in a characterful mixture of old and new buildings.
We firmly believe that learning and intellectual excitement occurs both inside and outside the classroom. We offer a broad range of subjects, an excellent range of trips, a STEM programme, a number of enrichment activities including a high profile employer engagement programme and individualised career guidance. This way, every student can develop their own talents and fully prosper before making the next exciting leap to Higher Education.
Learning at this level and making life-changing decisions is challenging for students, parents and carers – which is why St Marylebone offers excellent pastoral care from a dedicated team of tutors, mentors and experienced heads of year. Success at Sixth Form comes from effective and communicative partnership; we provide a regular programme of meetings in order for parents and carers to best know how to support their son or daughter.
Our traditional principles are solid foundations for our modern, forward-thinking outlook. This gives our students the confidence, skills and experiences to know that they can succeed in whatever they choose to do – and to enjoy the journey. Successive “outstanding” Ofsted inspections and external evaluations have recognised our dynamic spirit and progressive, caring ethos. To us, this is evident daily in the great young people we nurture. We do hope you will be one of them.
