The Mount School Sixth Form produces a very special kind of girl: mature, quietly confident, comfortable to be herself, to think independently, to live adventurously, to lead others and be critically conscious of the world around her whilst being considerate of others.
We have a reputation for excellent achievement and seeing girls successfully go on to high-ranking universities and career paths. At The Mount, we offer students a personalised Sixth Form experience both academically as well as for opportunities beyond the curriculum in preparation for their next step. Each girl has her own Personal Tutor as well as specialised Oxbridge and UCAS support. Mount girls are encouraged to grow and experiment, so they know where they want to go after The Mount and have taken the correct steps to get there. Making the right choice for Sixth Form education is so important and we know that what we can offer at The Mount is truly exceptional.
In our inclusive Sixth Form, girls join us from The Mount Senior School, from schools around Yorkshire and from overseas. Our warm and welcoming environment means that new girls quickly become part of our Mount family. Within a few days, they feel that they have been with the School for years. In our Sixth Form, students focus on their studies from day one; a naturally strong work ethic evolves with girls themselves driving their independent studies, developing habits that prepare them well for University and their successful careers. They are supported in this with a bespoke study skills programme delivered by Personal Tutors.
Opportunities are at the heart of our offering to girls in our Sixth Form, where they explore their current interests and develop new ones. As well as the vast array of clubs, the girls also have leadership opportunities; they develop oracy skills in Liberal Arts and produce a school newsletter.
Our small Independent School environment means that students are able to hone their skills during the two A-Level years to get the best results they can. Girls have their ‘dreams and aspirations’ and, through supported study, they can push themselves to achieve these with highly skilled and knowledgeable teachers motivating them at every turn. With The Mount on her CV, a girl is sure to go far.
