Sixth Form

Sixth Form marks a departure from Senior School. These two years, as you transition towards university, career and life beyond school, are incredibly important. It is our job to expertly guide you, yet allow you the freedom and independence to flourish as an individual.

We offer a wide choice of A Level subjects, with inspirational teaching and small classes enabling girls to achieve outstanding results. The size of our Sixth Form means we know each girl and can offer her the individual attention she needs. Our tutor system and exceptional pastoral care make for superb UCAS preparation and guidance. The majority of students will achieve a place at their first choice university, with bespoke preparation programmes for Medicine, Oxbridge and American universities on offer. In Sixth Form, students take an intellectual step-up.

A more analytical and investigative approach to lessons and personal study will see you getting under the skin of the subjects you love, and MSJ’s highly-regarded Enrichment Programme will elevate your learning and broaden your critical thinking. Enrichment comprises many elements: an annual lecture programme which includes talks from some of the top academics from the UK’s best universities; university and careers workshops, interview coaching, and mentoring from our alumnae network; Somerville Suppers, where students discuss current affairs and complex concepts; and ‘Russell Up’, our university preparation programme. Also included is the Extended Project Qualification, multiple leadership opportunities and prestigious extra-curricular activities such as Young Enterprise, Sports Leaders Awards, Model United Nations and the Gambia Expedition.

MSJ regularly welcomes inspirational guests to enthuse students about their futures. Past speakers include Caroline Lucas MP (Leader of the Green Party of England and Wales), Dr Caroline Copeland (Neuroscientist, Imperial College London), Professor David Feldman (University of Cambridge, Law) and Jennifer Kirby (RSC actress and star of BBC’s Call the Midwife). Of course, it’s not just about work. We want our girls to have fun and enjoy their Sixth Form years. There will be plenty of socials, glamorous occasions and shared events with other schools. Girls enjoy a greater freedom and flexibility: they have their own Sixth Form Centre, they can go ‘up-town’ to cafés or restaurants, and they enjoy plentiful cultural, shopping and social trips around the UK.

The Founders’ Award Scholarship is available to Sixth Form girls only. Other scholarships are available in other disciplines. Students in Year 11 are invited to apply. See more on scholarships at MSJ.

These two years will see you come into your own. We will encourage you to be your best and by the end of Year 13 you will be ready to fly.
