MSJ Sixth Form
Sixth Form at Malvern St James marks an exciting departure away from the Senior School. These two years, as you transition towards university and a life beyond school, are incredibly important. It is our job to expertly guide you, whilst allowing all our pupils the freedom and independence to flourish as individuals. Most importantly, we want all our Sixth Form pupils to thrive academically and socially.
The size of our Sixth Form means that we know each girl’s strengths and can offer her the individual attention she needs to fulfil her potential. Our team of dedicated tutors draws on a wealth of experience to ensure girls feel fully supported and guided throughout the UCAS process, whilst never failing to provide exceptional pastoral care. The majority of pupils achieve a place at their first-choice university, with bespoke preparation programmes well established for Oxbridge, Medicine, Veterinary Science and Law.
For girls considering alternative routes after their A Levels, we are pleased to support pupils applying for apprenticeships and degree apprenticeships, as well as girls planning their Gap Year.
What Subjects are taught at MSJ Sixth Form?
We offer a wide choice of A Level subjects where inspirational teaching and small classes enable girls to achieve outstanding results. Click the links below to download more information about your chosen subjects.
All courses are available subject to demand; a course may not run if there is insufficient demand.
In the Sixth Form, self-study and independence of thought are essential to succeed at A Level. A more analytical and investigative approach in lessons creates a dynamic academic culture. This allows for lively classroom debate as pupils explore the subjects they love with confidence and autonomy.
Girls are encouraged to take either an Extended Project Qualification to allow for in-depth research into an area of their choice, or follow the CTH Leith’s Professional Cookery Course, providing a qualification recognised by Universities for its rigour and development of skills beyond the curriculum.
MSJ Sixth Form has a vibrant social programme of cultural trips and excursions which allows girls greater freedom and flexibility in their Sixth Form years.
Looking Ahead to MSJ Sixth Form
At the end of each term, MSJ Sixth Form pupils write a newsletter which showcases the academic and co-curricular pursuits of our Year 12 and 13 pupils.
