Sixth form ethos
CCF Sixth form provides a varied and challenging environment that focuses principally on advanced courses, individual achievement and involvement in school activities. The school prides itself on close links with Higher Education establishments and has a very high proportion of students going on to study at degree level each year.
CCF Sixth form offers post 16 students choice, responsibility and opportunity. It has a lively atmosphere with a clear mission to equip students with the skills needed in today’s society and ensure success in attaining career and higher education opportunities.
In order to support our students in meeting their personal targets we run a Sixth form induction programme that aims to ensure students are studying effectively from the start of their courses and an extensive individual mentoring programme.
CCF Sixth form, however, is not all “heads down and study” it is an important time to make new friends, develop collaborative working methods and commit to membership of a community that is caring, helpful and prepares them for adult life.
There are plenty of opportunities to be part of an environment in which there is informed discussion of issues important beyond the immediate concerns of Advanced Level studies and for decisions to be made about the society in which we live.
We firmly believe in ensuring that all students are well informed to help them make the right choices both in choosing A levels and future university courses. With this aim in mind we strive to give a comprehensive overview of subjects. Each year we hold a Sixth Form Open Evening where prospective students have the opportunity to hear first hand from both subject teachers and present students about the courses offered here at Christ’s College Finchley.
