Sixth Form: Head's Introduction
I should like to take this opportunity to introduce to you the School's co-educational Sixth Form with its purpose-built facilities, dedicated teaching staff, extensive subject offer and top quality extra-curricular opportunities.
The Sixth Form offers a very wide range of Advanced Level courses. Our examination results are outstanding with a three-year average of 75% of all A Level passes at grades A*, A or B. According to the Sutton Trust’s most recent report on university entrance, MHCHS comes 7th out of the UK’s 3,500 comprehensive schools for the numbers of Oxbridge places (8 this term) and 5th for the number of admissions to the country’s 30 most selective universities.
We pride ourselves on the care and continuing support which we give to all of our students throughout their time in the Sixth Form. This, together with our excellent reputation for preparing students for public examinations and university, has meant that we have always attracted a large number of students from other schools, as well as from our own Year 11. We welcome applications from both.
Mill Hill County High Sixth Formers are regarded as young adults with rights, freedoms and responsibilities. Rules are kept to a minimum and exist to ensure that the school is a safe, civilised environment, in which students make progress. Sixth formers are not required to wear uniform and are generally free to plan their own time, outside lessons and tutorials.
Sixth Formers act as role models in the wider school community and have many opportunities to help lead and care for younger students.
If you require further information prior to your application, please do not hesitate to visit the Sixth Form area of our website or to contact the School’s Admissions Officer: email@example.com. In order to make an application please select ‘Apply’ in the Sixth Form area of the website.
The final date for the submission of applications in order to be considered for a firm offer of a place for September 2014 is as follows: Friday 20th December 2013 for current Mill Hill County High School students and Monday 3rd February 2014 for new entrants currently resident in the UK. Interviews for most new entrants will be held in March.
