Lubavitch Senior Girls' School

Sixth Form

On entering the Sixth Form at LSGS, students start to consider their future beyond school. Our aim is to give them the independence, confidence and knowledge to succeed in whichever path they choose. During their time in the Sixth Form, we help our students to learn to take responsibility for themselves - academically and personally - in preparation for the greater freedoms of life after school. They enjoy a range of freedoms and privileges, but within the support of the school structure.

These two years offer an intense of kodesh curriculum as well as a range of A Level subjects which are taught by high calibre, experienced A Level teachers.  At the same time there is an option to focus on obtaining vital life skills such as ICT, pool lifeguarding and first aid.  It will be an intense and productive, yet fun and exciting at the same time.  Most of all, as the oldest class in the school, students will be role models to those around them and serve as mentors and inject a spark of excitement and chasidishkeit for younger members of the school. 

 

SIXTH FORM LIFE 

Sixth Form life is different from that experienced lower down the school; students choose to be here and to specialise in subjects they wish to pursue.

When students enter the Sixth Form, they are exposed to a new set of expectations. They learn to take more responsibility for their own work, researching set topics, reading widely, making presentations in class, completing extended essays or investigations and meeting deadlines. This requires guidance from teachers and form tutors. They are there to help.

Sixth Form students have privileges and responsibilities which distinguish them from other years in the school. They play an important role in helping staff by supporting extra-curricular activities.

WORK: WHAT TO EXPECT 

LSGS offers each student a 16-19 Study Programme based on their prior attainment, and designed to meet clear educational and career aspirations.

Most students will be taught for most of the week, leaving some time for independent study. Independent learning is an important and integral part of the sixth form and will be the most noticeable change. It demands considerable self-discipline and the proper use of study time. It is an extremely important factor in determining the degree of success achieved by students, whatever type of course is being followed.

Maths and English

All students who didn't achieve a grade 5 in GCSE maths and English by the end of Key Stage 4 will have to continue to study those subjects. Where GCSE A*-C, Grade 5 or higher, English and maths is not immediately attainable, students can study other English and maths qualifications such as Functional Skills.

Students with special educational needs and/or disabilities

Students with special educational needs and/or disabilities will be supported through their choice of post-16 courses to ensure they follow a programme which stretches them, prepares them for adulthood and supports progression into work or further study. We work closely with students who have special education needs and/or disabilities (and their parents/carers) to ensure their choice of courses is appropriate given their career aspirations.
