Sixth Form Life

Nottingham High School

A time of transition

Your Sixth Form days are a time of transition: from childhood to adulthood; from school to university; from traditional learning to independent study; from rules and regulations to greater freedom and privileges.

Academically, you will want to leave us with excellent A level results and a place to study your preferred course at your chosen University. More broadly speaking, you’ll aspire to become so much more than the sum of your grades: to experience as much as you can beyond the classroom; to learn from the responsibility of leading others; to develop skills and interests that will serve you at university and in the workplace, and friendships that will last for life. Countless students before you have accomplished all this and more at Nottingham High School.
