Welcome to Sixth Form

On behalf of Boston Grammar School, I would like to welcome you to our Sixth Form pages, here you will find information that will allow you to explore the various elements and aspects of Sixth Form Life.  Information about the courses we offer can be found in the Sixth Form Prospectus, a link to which is available on the right hand side of the page.

Boston Grammar School Sixth Form aims to provide young men and women with the opportunities to develop themselves and to reach their own, true potential.  By providing support and guidance both academically and pastorally, we work hard to ensure that the journey through the Sixth Form years is both enjoyable and fruitful.  We pride ourselves on the levels of care that we show our students and believe that our students are very well looked after, being able to access staff in the Sixth Form Centre as they need to.

Our facilities are excellent and provide a suite of designated areas in which Sixth Form students may work when they have Private Study time.  Recent additions to our Sixth Form Centre have give students extra working spaces and access to additional classrooms for the delivery of lessons and seminars.

Do look through the information on these pages and please get in touch if you have any questions about any of the materials that you have read and explored.  I hope that you will see that Boston Grammar School Sixth Form provides students with an excellent foundation upon which they are able to build a bright and solid future for themselves.

Sixth Form life is very different to studying as a Year 11 student. However, the support I received at Boston Grammar School made the transition between courses and years much easier. The friendly staff and students, alongside a great working environment made it so exciting and straightforward to get started. Sixth form gives you a sense of freedom to take control of your own education and subsequent outcomes. Boston Grammar School Sixth Form is a great stepping stone between your GCSE's and whatever you wish to do in your future life following Sixth Form, whether that be a University course, full time employment or an apprenticeship. Being in the Sixth Form at Boston Grammar School has never been more exciting. New teaching and study facilities that were completed and opened in the winter of 2018 mean that students have a much improved working environment. This extension to the Sixth Form Centre offers an incredible space and resources for students to complete any work you wish to within your study periods or even before or after school.

Coming to a new school can feel daunting, with a crowd of unfamiliar faces, and with A-levels being tougher than ever. However, this was made easier at Boston Grammar School, with the support of caring staff, who endeavour to make the transition as seamless as possible. Having joined Boston Grammar School as a new student in Sixth Form, I was a little daunted by the history and traditions of this well respected school. However, I was able to overcome this quickly thanks to the staff and my peers and begin my Sixth Form journey. I’m sure you’ve all heard that A-Levels are a huge step up from GCSE’s and I have to say, this is incredibly true. As you adjust to Sixth Form life and settle into your A-level subjects, it is important to remember that you should also be doing plenty of work at home and during your study periods. Effective use of study periods is absolutely imperative to success! The opportunities here are extensive and offer something for everyone. Education is not just about final grades; it is about the experiences that you accumulate. All universities and future employers are keen to see that you have developed into a well-rounded, employable person. I implore you to take advantage of as many opportunities as you can from those you are presented with. Boston Grammar School prides itself on CARE (Care, Achievement, Respect and Excellence). I can honestly say I have experienced every element of this during my time at BGS. These values are central to everything that we do as a Sixth Form community. As well as engaging lessons, there are opportunities to develop your own skills outside of the classroom. I was fortunate enough to be appointed to the role of Head Girl, where I am supported by a marvellous team of Prefects and Senior Captains. Being the Head Girl has provided me with numerous experiences, such as giving a speech at Charter Day, a tradition that goes back over many years. Coming to Boston Grammar School has made me strive to be the best that I can be. Boston Grammar School is certainly encouraging and allowing me to achieve my potential. I hope this will be the case for you.
