Royal Grammar School


    The RGS Sixth Form is a special place to study beyond GCSE. We have an enviable academic record in helping our students achieve outstanding results and virtually all our sixth formers go on to study at competitive universities, including Oxford and Cambridge.  Whatever their academic strengths, students are well supported to achieve their potential and we provide first-rate careers advice and guidance throughout their time in the Sixth Form.

    Our pastoral care is proactive and there is a wealth of support for students from the Sixth Form year team, their form supervisor, a personal tutor, and our team of nurses and counsellors.  Each student is treated as an individual and we are very experienced with helping them navigate the challenges of the sixth form years with growing independence and confidence.

    There are also unrivalled opportunities beyond the curriculum, in sport, music, drama, the arts and the host of clubs, societies and activities that are available throughout the week. At RGS, we believe that those who involve themselves fully outside the classroom also do best within it – and have fun along the way.  We are keen that students leave us with the personal qualities and skills to make a difference to the lives of others as they move into adult life; altruism, kindness, and humility are hallmarks of an RGS Sixth Form education.

    The Sixth Form at RGS is one of the largest in the independent sector, with approximately 350 students. Virtually all of our Year 11 students progress to the Sixth Form each year and we are very proud that they are joined by around 40-50 new students from a wide range of other schools. For more information about applying to the Sixth Form, please visit the admissions section of our website.
