Our mission is to ensure that all of our students progress to a high quality university place, job or training course where they will have the skills necessary to excel.
Experience and Knowledge
Experienced teachers with superb subject knowledge deliver active, engaging lessons that lead students to exceptional examination performance. Excellent teaching acts as the foundation for everything we do and the following course specifications should guide you through the varied and flexible curriculum routes on offer.
Beyond the Classroom
As outlined in our core values, we believe that education is about more than just grades. In Chiswick Sixth Form we therefore expect students to undertake at least one hour of enrichment activities per week to help them grow as people and prepare them for the wider world. These can be activities that enhance learning or support the school/local community.
Examples of activities that enhance learning include joining/running subject groups and clubs, attending lectures, seminars and master classes in and out of school and visiting exhibitions, museums, galleries and performances.
These types of activities will benefit students personally and may relate to their chosen university courses or career paths.
Examples of activities that support the school and local community include working as a subject mentor, assisting faculties, running extracurricular clubs and committing to voluntary work for external organisations. These types of activities develop character, demonstrate commitment and responsibility and give students the opportunity to do things outside of their comfort zone - for example interacting with younger students, public speaking and leadership.
We firmly believe that sixth formers should have a say in the issues that affect them, and so students are also given the opportunity to join our well-developed Senior Student Committee. Senior students debate and make decisions that have a tangible impact on sixth form life. They lead on the organisation of fundraising events, social events and act as excellent ambassadors for the school during events such as the sixth form open evening.
Whether students choose to be part of the senior student committee or not, all Chiswick sixth formers are key leaders and role models in our school community and will regularly be seen supporting and helping to organise whole school events. As a Chiswick sixth former, you could find yourself working as cast or crew in a school production, acting as tour guides or subject ambassadors during open evenings, leading events for the eco and international award committees or volunteering at the local old peoples home.
