Sixth Form life at LEH
Sixth Form life at LEH is a completely new experience
The LEH Sixth Form provides the perfect environment to prepare you for the next stage of your education and personal development.
Life in the Sixth form is different to Lower School. Classes are much smaller, so you can really immerse yourself in your subjects and it gives you more contact time with your teachers. There are a wider range of subjects, meaning there really is something for everyone: new subjects include Economics, Psychology, Government and Politics, History of Art and Classical Civilisation. Enrichment sessions are also held in every subject; these enable you to broaden your knowledge of the subjects and introduce you to areas outside the curriculum, so you can really develop a love for the subject as a whole.
There is an outstanding range of extra-curricular activities on offer for Sixth Form students, including those for the younger years and others just for the Sixth Form. Students also have the opportunity to start their own clubs in any area.
There are many privileges to being in Sixth Form: the Sixth Form Library provides a quiet working environment for us whenever there is work to be done. The selection of books, online resources and the willingness of the librarians caters for any work crisis! The Café, open from 8.30 to 3 every day, offers a huge selection of reasonably-priced snacks, lunches and drinks; it is a great place to sit and relax with friends whilst taking a break in a busy day.
Students also hold positions of responsibility, which gives them a chance to lead the school and influence changes that are made. Some of the posts on offer include the Head Girl Team and Leadership Committee, the House Captains, and Thirds Mentors. A leadership position allows you to know the younger pupils and have greater insight into how the school is run. It is thanks to the Sixth Form at LEH that we have been able to flourish both within and beyond the curriculum: the vast array of new opportunities to explore our subjects, passions and leadership skills have made it an unforgettable experience. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we have.
