About the Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at The Malling School

Being a Key Stage 5 student at The Malling School encompasses both academic and personal development. We offer a balanced curriculum aimed at achieving academic excellence and take our duty to also develop wider skills very seriously. We encourage participation in extra-curricular activities and entrust students to positions of leadership and responsibility within the student body. We believe that the combination of academic and personal development prepares students exceptionally well to make their next steps at age 18.

Whilst the systems in place to support our students remain the same regardless of their year group, the pace at which students work and the way in which they approach their work will be significantly different to their experiences at GCSE. In addition to formal teaching periods, students will be expected to engage in private study in their own time, requiring independence and discipline. Key Stage 5 courses are demanding and students must be prepared to work beyond the formal written exercises set. Considerable extra study is required including additional reading. A successful student will need to spend additional hours each week working at home as well as in school. Our aim is to provide students with the skills required to be successful, not only in their chosen courses, but also as they move forward into higher education or employment.

Your choice of Key Stage 5 study is an important one; the decision you make now is not just about the next few years, it is about the rest of your life. By choosing to study at The Malling School you choose the things that are important to your future: committed teaching staff, outstanding pastoral support, excellent facilities, and a strong academic and personal development programme.
