Introduction

I am delighted to welcome you, virtually, to our Sixth Form. Although, like all schools, we cannot have our formal open evening this year, I really hope that by exploring our website and reading what our students think of the Sixth Form, you will get a real flavour for what we are all about at Slough and Eton. Choosing a Sixth Form is a really important and difficult choice to make. You want a Sixth Form that is going to set you up academically for your future, but also enables you to flourish as people. You want a Sixth Form that provides a range of opportunities for you to develop yourselves and to give you the edge. You want a Sixth Form that champions you to achieve your best and holds you to account if you can do better, but also looks after your wellbeing and who you are.

I believe at Slough and Eton, we do all of these things. I am really proud of our Sixth Form. We are a vibrant place of learning. We treat you like young adults and expect you to behave accordingly. It is because of this approach, we get such strong results and students tell us they enjoy attending our Sixth Form and would recommend us to a friend.

Please read the information below and click on the subject tabs to find out more about our qualifications.

Although we are not able to have an Open evening, we welcome the opportunity to give external students a tour of the Sixth Form after school. These need to be booked in advance – please contact sixthformadmin@slougheton.com to book a slot.

I look forward to receiving your application form.

Head of Sixth Form
