As the Head of Sixth Form of Leicester High School for Girls, allow me to provide you with an insight into the exceptional qualities that define our Sixth Form.

Academic Excellence:

We are an academic Sixth Form, offering academic subjects only. In 2023, we achieved an extraordinary milestone as every single one of our pupils secured placements at their first-choice universities. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the dedication of our students and the high-quality education they receive within our institution.

Our accomplished teaching staff work diligently to ensure that our students excel academically. 

Enrichment Opportunities:

Our Sixth Form experience extends far beyond academics. As a smaller-sized institution, we are uniquely positioned to provide a personalised and inclusive educational environment. 

Within our Sixth Form, students have access to a plethora of opportunities to explore their passions and interests through extracurricular activities, clubs, and societies. Whether it be sports, self-defence or financial education, a multitude of avenues await their exploration. We firmly believe that a well-rounded education encompasses not only academic success but also personal development, leadership skills, and character building.

We also actively encourage our students to participate in competitions, conferences, and internships that offer real-world experience, preparing them for the challenges that lie ahead in their future careers. Furthermore, our network of alumnae and industry connections enriches these opportunities.

In conclusion, our Sixth Form at Leicester High School for Girls is dedicated to nurturing academic excellence and encouraging personal growth. With its emphasis on academic subjects and a remarkable track record of students securing their first-choice universities, we are committed to providing your child with a solid foundation for a prosperous future. Our dedication to small class sizes and an abundance of enrichment opportunities ensures that your child's journey through our Sixth Form will be both academically rewarding and personally fulfilling.
