Frensham’s Sixth Form is a lively and vibrant part of the school where students are guided and supported through their AS and A Level exams – and in choosing the right path to the wider world, whether that be higher education, a really worthwhile gap year or starting out on the career ladder.
We are justifiably proud of what our Sixth Formers achieve, both academically and in so many other areas. Those who leave us at 18 after anything from two to 15 years are perhaps the best advertisement for the school. They embody so much of what we aim to achieve: rounded, tolerant, creative, resourceful, curious and respectful individuals.
In August 2012, our A2 students achieved an excellent set of results, so much so that all those who had applied realised their first or second choice of university. The sheer breadth of courses is a testament to the flexibility of Frensham and reflects the wonderful kaleidoscope of talents among our Sixth Formers. Unlike so many Sixth Forms that tend to specialise in one specific area, ours is one where scientists mix with artists, linguists mix with actors and sports stars mix with dancers – what better preparation for higher education can there be?
In the last two years, our students have gone on to many different higher education colleges and universities. The wide range of courses, from Art to Medicine, Drama to Mathematics, English to Physics and Dance to Marine Biology, clearly reflects the wonderful diversity of life at Frensham.
