Sixth Form

Sixth Form

At The Malling School Sixth Form, we pride ourselves on our holistic approach, developing the whole student, from their academic lessons, the international Baccalaureate core, and a rich extra-curricular offer.

Sixth Form courses are much harder than GCSE’s and so our students are required to work outside of the classroom. Sixth Form students are given greater responsibility for their own learning and will have study periods on their timetable, our Sixth Form Hub has a friendly and professional environment, where students are expected to be self-motivated, organised, and self-disciplined, this allows students to meet their full potential.

Throughout your time with us, you will be supported by your Form Tutor and the Sixth Form Team, we will guide you through your transition from year 11 to Sixth Form and again when it is time to move on to university or the world of work.

In Sixth Form, we have a laptop scheme, all Sixth Form students have the same laptop in a year group, this is paid for by you in instalments and is yours to keep at the end of the two years.

At our Sixth Form we have 3 proposed pathways, our current Level 3 pathway is The International Baccalaureate Careers Programme (IB CP), we are also currently a candidate school* for the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB DP). Our third pathway is our bespoke Level 2 vocational programme.  

All 3 pathways have the requirements to prepare our students for their futures and our students secure their first-choice universities, apprenticeships, and jobs of choice in the world of work.

*The Malling School is a candidate school* for the Diploma Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students.

* Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme (DP), or the Career-related Programme (CP). Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
