Sixth Form Life
Rendcomb offers an environment where excellence is nurtured within a safe and supportive community. When the time comes to make choices about the future, pupils receive individual support from their tutor and the Head of Sixth Form.
Sixth Formers can choose subjects from a developing and evolving curriculum, offering exciting new subjects and the chance to think outside of the box in the Extended Project Qualification. They develop leadership skills through Sport and Outdoor Education and even get a taste of life beyond school at our Sixth Form House in the village where Upper Sixth pupils take on the challenge of independent living, managing their time, balancing a food budget and even cleaning their own clothes!
The new state of the art Performing Arts Centre now provides yet more opportunities as a space where the arts, debating, public speaking and conferences can be showcased.
The Head of Sixth Form leads pupils through the university entry process and oversees a programme which includes the highly regarded Elevate study skills course and a Careers Fair, which has previously welcomed the CEO of UCAS as a special guest. A large proportion of our pupils choose to attend Russell Group or Oxbridge universities and we encourage them to consider opportunities from further afield including Europe and the USA before making their final choice.
Preparation for Life
The aim of all aspects of the Sixth Form at Rendcomb is to prepare students for adult life; pupils take part in enrichment activities including a leadership programme and outdoor education all adding to a student’s portfolio of transferrable skills.
The Sixth Form Green room
For two evenings a week, Sixth Form pupils have access to the Sixth Form Green Room which is located within the main College building. The Green Room provides a relaxed social space for our oldest pupils and includes a cinema area with games consoles, comfortable sofas, a pool table and a kitchenette.
