About the Sixth Form

About the Sixth Form

Pupils at LEH often comment that the two years they spend in the Sixth Form is a time of almost unparalleled excitement and diversity.


The study of four subjects in the Lower Sixth forms the bedrock of the girls academic experience. In addition, pupils benefit from a staggering range of other challenges, trips and opportunities, each of them deepening and enriching their personality and their outlook on the wider world.

The girls are independent thinkers, many of whom develop a high level of knowledge and expertise in areas of personal interest through completion of the Extended Project Qualification.

As well as academic lessons, girls learn by taking part in activities such as sport, music, drama, Young Enterprise, Combined Cadet Forces. Mentoring younger pupils will deepen and enrich your outlook on the wider world. Girls develop leadership skills by taking on roles within our House system and on committees, such as Model United Nations. These experiences stay with girls for the rest of their lives. 

LEH girls leave for university well-rounded, grounded and intellectually curious, and go on to thrive in a range of academic settings and equally retain a key concern for their role both within and beyond the School community. They know how to realise their full potential, contribute to their communities and retain a sense of fun, purpose and direction in everything they do. The Sixth Form environment which exists at LEH is certainly a remarkably diverse, stimulating and enjoyable one.
