Borden Grammar School invites boys and girls to join the Sixth Form, where they will be able to choose from a wide range of courses and to participate in an excellent range of extra-curricular activities. Our aim is for students to leave school with the experience, qualifications and skills to enter Higher Education and careers with confidence and enthusiasm.
What makes us different?
Finding the right environment and courses is crucial to sixth form success. The courses available at Borden and through its partner schools can cater for a wide range of interests. We strive to help all our students achieve their ambitions.
The school has excellent study and sports facilities, and sixth formers work and relax in a modern, well-equipped environment. A Sixth Form Common Room affords the chance both to study and socialise whilst an area of the Library and Resources Centre is reserved for Sixth Form use, with ample access to computers and an array of other resources.
Good facilities are only part of the story: we also provide a secure support system to ensure that all students receive the help and guidance they need at every stage of their Sixth Form studies. All students are part of a form led by a tutor with the expertise and experience to mentor and encourage them in their work and in making the applications that will take them into universities and careers. We encourage students to become independent, but we are right there to provide the support they need.
Do contact the school to arrange a visit and tour. We look forward to meeting you.
