Welcome to our London private sixth forms guide.

Private Sixth Forms Guide

There’s a huge range of Independent schools / private schools spread across the UK. These schools are fee paying and most of them are also members of the ISI (Independent Schools Inspectorate).

Private schools are run by governors and independent of many regulations that apply to state schools. The biggest of these regulations is probably that they are independent of is the National Curriculum.

Sixth Forms Private Schools Admissions Pages

In England, Wales, Northern Ireland and some Common Wealth countries a Sixth Form refers to the last 1-3 years of schooling. This is usually between the ages of 16 and 18. A Sixth Form education is to prepare for A-level exams, at the end of Year 13.

The word comes from an earlier system of schooling in England and Wales. The first 5 years of secondary schooling were divided into forms. You would move up a form every year until the fifth form. If you stayed on at school to prepare for A-levels you would then go onto the sixth form. This system was changed from the 1990-1991 academic year.

For most schools, Sixth Form, therefore, consists of Year 12 (Lower Sixth) and Year 13 (Upper Sixth).

Private Sixth Forms Admissions

Although most English Private Secondary schools have a Sixth Form as part of the school, these can also be independent. There are quite a few Sixth Form colleges. Although you might want to spare your child from moving school, there are many advantages to either option. The most significant of these is probably the independence found in a Sixth Form College. It could be a very valuable way to transition from the school environment to further studies at a University or College.

Although Sixth Form is not compulsory in England, children of that age need to still be in formal education. There are a few choices  at the end of Year 11:

  • Attend Sixth Form in preparation of University/Academic qualification
  • Vocational training
  • Advanced Apprenticeship
