What our students have to say:
“I have greatly appreciated how kind the teachers are and how much help that they offer, if it wasn't for the support from staff of the 6th form then I wouldn't enjoy it nearly as much as I am. While the work is hard, it's certainly worth it for the conversations and things that you learn. It's a super friendly environment and even as someone who is extremely introverted I have found that I have been able to enjoy the company of others.”

“It’s a big change however you have much more freedom, learn new things and being able to choose your own subjects will help with your motivation.”
Student - Year 13
“I have made many new friends as I joined the school at the start of year 12 and I am enjoying all of my subjects”
Arabella - Year 12
“Coming to the UK as an overseas student was hard, so I was extremely happy to be accepted by Towers School to join the Sixth Form. The teachers are all patient and nice with me both in and out of classrooms. The facilities are well maintained and equipment is always available for studies.”
