Set away from the main buildings, the Coach House and Stable Block of Malvern Hall form the hub of the Sixth Form. The Centre is spacious with a purpose built Common Room with its own ICT suite and facilities for private study.
Many Sixth Form lessons are held in this part of the site while classes needing specialist facilities, such as Art and Science, are taught in the main School buildings.
In our Sixth Form the needs of each individual girl can be met; there are also numerous opportunities for developing leadership skills. Tutorial size classes mean accountability and participation by all; old girls comment that as a consequence university tutorials and seminars are a breeze! The self-confidence self-assurance evident in our girls enables them to make transition to university with ease.
The Head Girls Team is voted for during the Spring Term of the Lower Sixth year and work together for a term before the Head Girl is chosen. They are supported in their roles by a team of prefects who are again voted into their positions. House and Games Captains are also appointed.
All Sixth Form students have the opportunity to take on positions of responsibility within the School, developing teamwork and communication skills. Girls also have numerous opportunities to develop their leadership skills in extra-curricular activities such as Drama, Music and Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Some Sixth Formers set up clubs for the younger girls or choose to help out in the Nursery, Key Stage 1 and 2 classrooms.
