Sixth Form

A Stepping Stone to The Wider World

The Sixth Form experience at Dover College is rich in diversity. Co-curricular opportunities and social events create an enjoyable learning experience and develop our students’ confidence throughout their stay with us. Our approach help students become well-rounded individuals and prepare them for what is to come.

Sixth Form is a challenging time when important choices are made in preparation for the world of Higher Education and employment. It is a time when there is more freedom to select new subjects, manage study time, develop new interests and make new friends.

Academically, Sixth Form pupils have the option to select A Levels, BTECs or a mixture of both qualifications.

In the Sixth Form, students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own performance and well-being in preparation for life outside of school.

There is a range of activities on offer, such as the Young Enterprise programme, completing the highly respected Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award or a LAMDA qualification.

Our Sixth Form pupils are given various opportunities such as speaking in weekly assemblies, becoming a peer mentor and taking part and a leading role in the school enrichment programme or in the various school committees, such as the food and school council. All Sixth formers are able to seek and earn a position as one of our School Senior Prefects who, through their service to the school, develop leadership and other skills such as public speaking and organisational skills.
