  • Science_6thgroup

The aim of the Sixth Form at LPGS is to provide a high quality Post-16 education which will enable you to reach the best possible standards of achievement in both academic and personal development.

High expectations, strong teaching and excellent relationships are key features of our Sixth Form. We wish all those entering the Sixth Form to make an informed, sensible decision about their next step.

Our Co-Educational Sixth Form is vibrant, diverse, successful and growing. Nearly three quarters of students from Year 11 choose to stay on because they have discovered that our supportive staff and friendly atmosphere, combined with challenging expectations and high standards, will guarantee future success.

We also welcome many students from other schools who will tell you in their own words, they are convinced they have made the best choice.


Matching and Exceeding Expectations
