Be the very best you can be

Welcome

A warm welcome to our co-educational Sixth Form. 

Our curriculum is designed to inspire, challenge and grow minds.  Here, students understand the wider world context of their learning and how they learn, develop 'Higher-education ready' research skills and demonstrate that they are agents for change. 

Our curriculum is wider than the academic and includes careers education, 1:1 support for Higher Education applications and programmes to support specific career pathways and destinations. 

This is all in the context of our supportive, inclusive community enables our students to meet their potential and to have the confidence to think ‘Why not me?’.   

Don't just take my word for it, though.  Do visit us at one of our open days and talk with our students and staff to find out more.

    We are encouraged to engage with the Sixth Form team, offering ideas about how to improve and develop the school community. This means that our experience is largely shaped by us. I think that this is unique to TGS and that the students here have a strong voice and are connected with staff.

    Never before have I met such a diverse range of talented, intelligent, friendly people as I have at the Sixth Form at TGS. Each student is aspiring to do so many interesting things in the future and many of them are already doing fascinating things. I find this environment has inspired me and that is what is so special about TGS.

    I believe that the IB Diploma equips young scientists with the research skills they need at university and beyond, providing them with the chance to solve real-world problems in an international context.

    The IB Diploma prepares students well for life after school. The fact is we only have a vague idea of what challenges the students of today will be facing in their future. This means the only sensible system of education is one which equips students to be reflective learners and to cultivate the skills and values which will make them dynamic and flexible in facing these issues. I think the IB does this through its broad academic curriculum and emphasis on a value-based education.

    Subject Leader Psychology

    I choose to teach in an IB school because the philosophy is really aligned with what I think education should be all about. The IB programmes in the middle years and the Sixth Form are academically rigorous and encourage students to think critically. I value being part of a learning community which is culturally aware with an international outlook.

    We, as a school, have a great sense of community. Each person is unique but we are able to gel together and still celebrate our differences. TGS is very caring – with everyone often coming the help of others.
