on your day
Sixth Form is a busy and exciting time and we want you to enjoy your studies and be yourself as you lay the best foundations for life beyond The Perse.
With around 400 students across the Sixth Form, classes are small in size, ensuring you get the direction, interaction and support you need from first-class teachers, while also being encouraged to work independently.
Away from the classroom, you will have the opportunity to try things you have never done before, whether it be trekking in the Himalayas, mentoring younger children or playing in an orchestra.
As a Sixth Former, you will benefit from being part of a wider 11-18 school community and can play an important leadership role as a prefect, an expedition leader or sports captain.
In terms of exam results, Perse Sixth Formers achieve many of the very best results in the country.
Over 93% of entries for A level/Pre U have been graded at A* or A (or Pre U equivalent) this year.
The majority of our students leave to begin undergraduate study at university.
Our most popular destinations are Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, University College London and Bristol. Students choose a very wide range of university courses including medicine, the sciences and the arts.
Some students leave us to study abroad at an international university like Harvard, while others are offered places at top sporting academies or music conservatoires.
Over the last five years, 189 Perse students have gone to Oxford and Cambridge, 96 to Durham, 67 to Bristol and 63 to UCL.
In addition, 85 students have left to study medicine and veterinary medicine, while a further 85 went on to study engineering.
Our team of specialist advisors are on hand to provide advice and guidance on all aspects of the university application process.
Our staff are available to assist you with choosing the courses that are most suited to you and your longer term ambitions, as well as providing guidance on what to include in your personal statement.
Practice interviews enable you to grow in confidence and think in advance about how to approach a university selection interview. Staff also keep up to speed with the latest changes to university selection criteria to ensure you are well briefed and prepared when you apply.
We recognise that your success also depends on the need for strong pastoral support through what can be an intense and challenging time in your life.
As well as being able to turn to your tutor, the door is always open for you to meet with the Head of Sixth Form or either of the two Heads of Year to discuss any issues.
