Beyond the classroom

We want every girl to leave us as a confident woman, ready to face her future with total faith in who she is as an individual. That’s why our Sixth Form goes far beyond outstanding A-level teaching.

Inspirational enrichment programme

Meeting Sadiq Khan

In your two years here, you will be inspired by our extensive enrichment programme, which offers a vast range of talks, visits, activities and workshops, and takes place every Wednesday afternoon. Recent speakers have included ambassadors from the Women of the Future Programme, Stonewall and the Anthony Nolan Trust. We also provide sessions on vital life skills such as cooking, budgeting, finance and self-defence.

Giving back

Eco Club

Our Sixth Formers are aware of the world around them and give back to society. All students volunteer in the community during their time here, and our annual Charity Week is run by the Sixth Form for the whole school. We encourage girls to tackle the causes that matter to them by initiating and running their own projects, and current students are making a big impact with Eco Club, Medical Society and Social Justice Group.

In May 2019, the Year 12 founders of Eco Club led the rest of the school in creating a life-size whale installation made out of used plastic bags to raise awareness of the human impact on our oceans.

Learning to lead

Leadership

We make our Sixth Form girls into leaders. They are crucial role models for our younger students, and are given important responsibilities for keeping school life running smoothly. We are small enough for all girls to access our vast range of leadership opportunities, and to learn how to influence and inspire groups of people. Whether you gain a place on the Head Girls’ Team or the Magazine Committee, or are appointed Prep School Liaison Prefect, House Captain or Sports Captain, our Sixth Form will help you learn how to lead.

Sports, music and drama for all

Sports programme

The sports programme at Sutton High is options-based, giving you a chance to find your own way to keep fit for life. From yoga to orienteering, and from canoeing to bouldering, there is something for everyone to enjoy. For girls who prefer more competitive sports, we offer netball, hockey, swimming, tennis and athletics.
There are also regular opportunities to perform in our school productions, including musicals, plays, concerts and dance displays.
