Director of Sixth Form

It is with great excitement that we welcome you personally you to The New Sixth. We hope that you will find our sixth form to be a wonderful, fulfilling and enriching place to study.

We chose to study at The New Sixth because it provides such a caring and supportive environment. We both knew, instinctively, that it was the right place for us to be and that we would perform to the best of our ability, surrounded by friends and teachers who inspire and motivate us.

“I am currently studying A Levels in Maths, Physics, Drama and Dance. Building on a life-long love of the performing arts, my ambition is to study musical theatre in a London Dance college and to hopefully make it as a performer on the West End. I’ve been at St Gregory’s since Year 7 and I am passionate about working towards an even more integrated school where are sixth form is a natural progression right from the start. The student leadership team works closely with the Senate to make sure we listen to the needs of all students and work together to build a sixth form all. I am looking forward to an exciting year in this role.”


“My name is Abi and I am studying Biology, Chemistry and Maths at A Level. After my exams next year, I hope to go to university in Scotland to study medicine. From my first days as a nervous Year 7, and knowing only one other girl, to representing the school in hockey, netball, rounders and the team maths challenge; St Gregory’s and now, The New Sixth, has provided me with a warm and inclusive environment from the start. Now in Year 13, I am half way through my A Levels and I couldn’t ask for more support, more helpful teachers, or a better working environment than the one that the staff have provided me with. I am looking forward to giving back to the school that has given me so much.”

The New Sixth is a crucial stepping stone from school to university, bridging the gap from childhood to adulthood and you will find that everyone works hard to ensure that your time here is the best it can be, creating memories and friendships that stand the test of time.

The Student Leadership Team consists of a Head Boy and Girl, ably supported by Deputies and Senior Students. Together we take lead roles in the wider school community as well as within the sixth form.
