The Portsmouth Grammar Sixth Form
The Sixth Form experience is rightly described as the best that education has to offer. A greater freedom, combined with the studying of subjects that you genuinely enjoy, in smaller classes and with more adult relationships with teachers and tutors all make for an exceptionally fulfilling and hugely rewarding time. To have the opportuntity to do all this at a place as lively and as aspirational as PGS is to make that experience unforgettable.
The Sixth Form years are very much a gateway to university and beyond – a time too for individuals to equip themselves with those vital life skills, balancing independence and responsibility alongside the need to prioritise effectively to meet deadlines and other expectations. The vibrant nature of PGS means that as well as academic opportunities to rival the best in the country, a whole range of other exciting and enriching ones exist too. There’s sport, music, the arts, drama, tours, trips and visits or societies and clubs organised by Sixth Formers themselves.
At this stage of your education you will also value the high level of pastoral and academic support available in the PGS Sixth Form. Whether by ensuring the smoothness of the tranisition from Year 11 to the Sixth Form, in managing the shift towards a more independent style of working, or in making use of the extensive university and careers advice available, PGS provides an environment in which Sixth Formers feel supported and empowered to reach their fullest potential.
