As the Director of Sixth Form it’s my privilege to work alongside students to ensure their time in the Sixth Form is joyful, productive and full of wonderful memories.
We are a warm and vibrant community which prides itself on creating an environment that enriches all students. Sixth Form at KAS won’t just prepare you for Higher Education or starting a career, it will also help to provide you with the skills and attributes to lead happy and fulfilled lives. With many opportunities, both inside and outside of the classroom, you’ll develop and grow as an individual while you study.
The Sixth Form team is here to provide you with all the support and guidance needed for you to achieve your many goals. With a personal tutor for each student and small tutor groups, you will always have a staff member who knows you well alongside you on your journey.
As a member of the Sixth Form you’ll have greater freedom and greater responsibility. Younger students will look to you as role models, and teachers will place further trust in you as you take a leading role in the life of our School. I am certain you are more than able to meet these expectations, and in contributing to our School community and beyond, you’ll demonstrate exactly why King Alfred School students are amongst the very best!
The King Alfred School Sixth Form is a unique learning experience. We know that in order to thrive we need a supportive and a non-pressurised environment which allows us to learn and grow. We pride ourselves on having created just such an environment and we hope you will join us to experience it first-hand.
Sixth Formers at KAS benefit from their own dedicated study areas situated in our tree-filled grounds.
In September 2021 we officially opened our new Sixth Form Centre. Year 12 & 13 students benefit from this dedicated, modern and inspiring new space which includes a common room, study centre and outdoor terrace. With tea, coffee and refreshment facilities, the Common Room provides somewhere to socialise with other students while the quiet first floor area provides space to study.
Further study space is provided in the Upper School Library. A comfortable, welcoming environment, the Library is available throughout the school day whether students want to borrow books for their latest coursework, use our online resources, study, or just curl up with a good read.
The King Alfred School is situated over two sites on the edge of Hampstead Heath. The Sixth Form is based mainly on our Manor Wood site which is centred around a beautiful field. With state-of-the-art labs for science, ICT suite, a professional theatre, Music and Drama practice spaces, Music Technology suite, Design Technology workshops, dark room, blacksmithing forge, video editing suite, light-filled art studios, gym, fitness studio, two astro pitches and dedicated classrooms for all subjects it is a unique and inspiring place to study.
