    Sixth Form

    Fortismere has an outstanding Sixth Form with a strong focus on academic excellence.  Applications are received from a wide geographical area, mostly with a portfolio of very good GCSE results.  Students usually study four AS level subjects in Year 12 and, subsequently, four or three A2 subjects in Year 13 for the full A level award. The impressive range of subject choices attracts buoyant numbers in all the traditional A levels as well as specialist areas like Further Maths, German, Economics, etc. Academic progress is supported by a very close system of target setting and monitoring. Excellent guidance is provided for all students, as well as additional preparation for those making Oxbridge applications or preparing for BMAT and UKCAT(medical) or Law entrance exams. There is a strong focus on school leadership and on students taking responsibility for their progress. A range of extra-curricular opportunities enriches and contributes to an holistic package so that our students become confident and articulate young adults. The vast majority progress on to university and a sophisticated guidance system ensures that they are well advised in their decision making. We also offer a small number of Vocational Qualifications. A separate 6th Form online prospectus can be viewed here.
