Southgate School has one of the largest sixth forms in Enfield and North London.  The sixth form at Southgate School is an exciting and vibrant place to be where challenging academic work goes hand in hand with opportunities to develop as young people, lead others and help the school and wider community.

We offer a wide range of traditional A level subjects and have the flexibility to meet the needs of as many students as possible.  A Levels provide a traditional academic route.  We also offer Vocational courses for our students.  Both routes are suitable preparation for university entry.

Many of our Year 11 students stay on into our sixth form.  We have an exciting induction programme and all students take part in some form of voluntary enrichment.  Students are encouraged to consider their future destinations and we have a high quality Higher Education programme.  Over 85% of our students continue into Higher Education.  We send a number of students to some of the top universities in the country.  There is also a programme to help students who want to follow a non-HE route and we take pride in the fact that all of our students leave here with a place at a university, college, apprenticeship or in employment. 

Enrichment activities include:

  • Senior Prefects
  • 6th form committee
  • Peer mentoring.
  • Charity work.
  • Community work.
  • Debating club.
  • Duke of Edinburgh Silver and Gold Award.
  • Sports teams.
  • Drama & Music activities.

Students are placed into tutor groups and stay with their tutor for the 2 years they are in the sixth form.  Their tutor takes a special interest in the progress of each student and will have an in depth knowledge of their students.  Tutors will hold whole group tutorial sessions and work on raising achievement.  We have built in regular times for reviews and formal assessment so that students and parents are informed of progress. Regular assemblies allow the opportunity for all students to gather and listen to themed assemblies aimed at improving achievement and raising awareness of important issues.

We have a state of the art Sixth Form Study Centre for the use of all students.  This provides a quiet environment in which to study.

We are proud of the academic success of our students.  We consistently gain excellent results on our post-16 courses.  We rigorously monitor the progress of all students to ensure they achieve.  Our value added scores show that we support our students to reach their full potential.  We are very proud of our students who leave as confident, successful and responsible young people.
