Bow Sixth Form opened its doors this year at the start of September! We were very excited for the arrival of our new students and it is fantastic to see them progressing so well now. As a part of SFE, Bow is working with established schools and experienced staff to ensure provision is the highest quality. We are also partnered with businesses and universities who can offer mentors, insight and a way to get ahead!
Bow Sixth Form students have access to a range of exciting extra-curricular and enrichment opportunities whilst studying. They are also supported with a comprehensive tutorial system to ensure that every student reaches their full potential.
Specialist support from tutors
Bow Sixth Form students will benefit from specialist sixth form tutors, who are trained to provide specific post-16 guidance. They will be knowledgeable about university progression, career options and effective working to achieve the best results. Classes will be small and tutors will be able to get to know all the strengths of their tutees. Tutors will monitor the performance of their tutees, to ensure that each and every student is reaching the targets they are capable of. Where necessary, any progress monitoring will be relayed to parents, so that they are fully involved in the development of their child's future.
A range of enriching extra-curricular activities in our brand new facilities
The new school has exciting sports facilities for the sixth form to use; the students can be part of teams both with and against the other schools in Sixth Form East. There are also specialist dance, drama and performance spaces for use during enrichment time, which is built into the sixth form timetable.
Strong partnerships with employers
Bow School works closely with employers, such as Rothschild and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, to support the future employability of our students. This is no exception in the sixth form, where there are internship and work shadowing opportunities for our students, events run to develop confidence, teamwork and leadership skills and support with CVs and covering letters.
Our strong business links mean we are also able to provide unique mentoring opportunities for our sixth formers. Mentors can support with university applications, careers advice, study strategies or simply lend an ear and listen to the challenges our students are facing.
University programmes and links
We are fortunate enough to live in a city with a large provision of outstanding higher education. More importantly, Bow School has links in place to work closely with these institutions, to support our students to university and beyond. The school is also linked to other institutions across the UK, including colleges at both Oxford and Cambridge Universities. We provide visits to universities, summer school placements, support with applications to university and thorough guidance about the best places available.
Be a part of the wider school community
Being a sixth former at Bow puts you in an exciting position, both to be a part of the school and to lead it. Sixth formers have a very separate identity but support students lower down the school, developing leadership and communication skills.
