If your child is displaying symptoms, book a test and keep them at home. Your household should self-isolate for 14 days. But neither you nor your family need to book a test unless you display symptoms. https://t.co/K7xo8nLVKe

If your child is unwell, but isn’t displaying any of the three coronavirus symptoms, there’s no need to book a test. After they’ve recovered, they can return straight back to school. https://t.co/DpeDn9kn6A

Life in the Sixth Form

Welcome from the students

Welcome to the SJL Sixth Form. You are about to make a great decision. The experience of being in the SJL Sixth Form is very different from being at school. The staff treat you like adults and you have a much higher degree of freedom. It is also a place where everyone has very high standards and great expectations for their future.

The exceptional teaching and support that is given really prepares you for university and there is a strong sense of community where everyone gets along and supports one another in their learning. Right from the first hour in the Sixth Form you will feel that you belong here.

The consortium system of which our Sixth Form is part of forms another advantage, as it conveniently allows us to study subjects at other local schools and vice versa.

There are also countless new experiences available to students ranging from peer mentoring at the main school to creating and running your own business with the support of the Young Enterprise scheme.

There are also many trips including residential courses in subjects that you are interested in and an American exchange.

We hope that the decision you make is the right one and that you will come and join us at the SJL Sixth Form. We look forward to seeing you.

What the students say

“I was a new student in Year 12 and the first thing that struck me was how welcoming everyone was. Everyone was asking me what I was studying and where I was from. This was really nice and has stayed with me throughout this year”.

“There is an amazing amount of support from all staff”.

“Because SJL is part of a consortium, we can study a huge range of subjects and get to make great friends”.

“I love it - the atmosphere is brilliant”.

“There are loads of opportunities to do the things you enjoy”.

“I joined SJL Sixth Form in September from another school. Everyone has been so friendly. I am having a great time”.

“I have really enjoyed my first year in Sixth Form and can’t imagine studying anywhere else”.

“I enjoy the freedom of making my own choices about how I learn”.

“Sixth Form was probably one of the best choices I have ever made! I always knew that I wanted to carry on with my education and that Sixth Form was the route I wanted to take, but it has turned out to be a better choice than I anticipated”.
