Cathedral School’s Sixth Form, we
aim to foster an intellectually stimulating environment
in which pupils can make the most of their talents
and grow into young men and women able to contribute
greatly to the community.
Back in 1980, BCS was one of the first independent
boys’ schools in the country to welcome girls
into its Sixth Form. This pioneering move has proved
a lasting success, with the co-educational Sixth Form
earning a reputation for producing students who not
only achieve excellent examination results, but also
show tremendous maturity.
The ethos of the Sixth Form is a little more relaxed
than that of the lower years. Sixth Formers have their
own fully equipped centre at Abbey House and they are
encouraged to take some responsibility for their own
studies. This is quite deliberate, since the next stage
for most of them will be university, where they will
have to organise themselves. Our students, especially
girls joining us from other schools, welcome this approach.
BCS Sixth Formers also value the great range of opportunities
that exist for them to combine their studies with an
enormous range of other activities, from drama and
music productions to Young Enterprise and our international
and charitable projects.
