Sixth Form Experience

A Stepping Stone to The Wider World.

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

ixth 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 tudy time, develop new interests and to make new friends.

Academically, Sixth Form pupils have the option to select one of our pathways from our exciting new curriculum: our A-Level programme, our Professional programme or a combination of both.

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

There are a range of activities 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.
