Service Description

The Central Foundation Girls’ School Sixth Form is a vibrant and distinct learning community. We are committed to providing the highest standards of teaching and learning within a strong academic environment. We believe in maximising our students’ potential through effective guidance and support and by providing a range of opportunities to equip our young people with the skills and knowledge to succeed in the 21st century.

We offer a strong combination of learning and social facilities to ensure students are well catered for. This year we have three distinct learning pathways: accelerated, academic and vocational. These pathways ensure that students of all abilities study appropriate courses on their individual roads to success. We have witnessed a significant rise in our student numbers from less than 230 to over 280 as a result of our new and extended provision. We have also moved to brand new Sixth Form facilities in the Aspire building which is further improving the learning experiences of our students.

Additional Information

At CFGS we believe that being in the Sixth Form is not just about academic achievement, but it is a time for you to challenge yourself in new situations, discover new skills and relish opportunities available to you, all in preparation for your future.

Life as a Sixth Form student at CFGS offers many opportunities enabling you to excel both academically and socially. We have a wide range of courses from Entry Level to Level 3, with over 20 subjects offered at ‘A’ Level. For those of you who prefer coursework to exams we offer BTEC courses, which can also be combined with ‘A’ Levels. We expect you to work to the best of your ability to achieve the highest possible grades.

We encourage you to take an active role in the life of the school and local community as part of the student leadership team as ambassadors , form representatives or as our Head Girl or Deputy Head Girl. There are also opportunities for you to inspire and mentor younger students, to do voluntary work and work experience.

We offer expert careers advice to prepare you for life at university, on apprenticeship courses, in training or in employment. Over 70% of our students attend university every year many of them at Russell Group universities.

Our team of experienced and dedicated teachers and tutors will help you to achieve your ambitions in a vibrant and friendly new state of the art Post 16 centre.

Individual Timetable
Your timetable will depend on the subjects you take but the school day runs from 8.40am – 3.10pm, within which you will have a number of non-contact periods for “Personal Study Time” when you will be responsible for your own learning.

Focussed Support
From the moment you enrol you will be placed in a form group other students studying similar courses and will share a Form Tutor who will be there to support and encourage you from the day you start to the day you leave. You will see your tutor and fellow tutees every morning during registration and extended form time for lively debates and activities, and will have frequent 1-to-1 Tutorial sessions for in-depth discussion and advice about your progress and ambitions.

One reason why we receive so many applications for the Sixth Form is the quality of teaching and the support you will receive from subject teachers, from individual help in lessons, to extra revision classes near exams our teachers are always friendly, approachable and willing to help you achieve the best you can.

You will be based in our brand new state-of-the-art Sixth Form centre on Bow Road, and lessons will take place in this building and our other campuses at Harley Grove (across the road).

Whether you are looking for a quiet place to study, space to work on a project or simply somewhere to sit and relax with friends, we have a place for you. From our 3rd Floor Common Room and Roof Garden with amazing views of the Olympic Stadium, Canary Wharf and the Shard, to the ground floor Café watching the hustle and bustle of Bow Road to the quiet of the Library you will find your place within CFGS Sixth Form.
