Welcome to our Sixth Form!

We are delighted and excited that you are thinking about continuing your studies with us at The Duchess’s Community High School. We believe our Sixth Form has a great deal to offer, so it’s hardly surprising that a large number of our Year 11 students decide to stay with us. The majority of our Year 12 and Year 13 students stated that they would recommend Sixth Form life to other students.

Our Sixth Form Intent

At the core of our work we strive to ensure that 6th form at DCHS aims to inspire lifelong success by building positive relationships that enable young people to become purposeful, creative and curious individuals who contribute to the global community.

We want you to become a role model for others, we want to instill a purpose in you to contribute to the world around you and to be the very best you can be. At the heart of our philosophy are relationships and developing those that you have with both peers and adults within school and the wider community. We want to inspire you to be curious in your studies and creative in your thinking and attitudes to the world around you. We want you to be informed so that the decisions you take about your next steps are well considered and right for you as an individual.

We look forward to working with you all.
