Life in the Senior School is exciting. A lively sense of specialist scholarship pervades the last two years of study, once you have chosen the subjects which you feel most passionate. Whether it’s open discussion in small-group lessons, or the stimulating exchange of ideas in the Common Room, the Senior School is a time of academic adventure. The personal and intellectual confidence you’ll develop in this environment is exhilarating and deeply rewarding.
The specialism of the A level courses gives you the intellectual freedom to explore in depth and relish the rewards of independent study. Your lessons are likely to feel very different and much more like a university experience. Small group sizes lead to lively discussion and tailored learning.
If you are currently studying for GCSEs, expect to achieve A* grades and want an intellectually challenging environment, we hope you will want to apply to St Paul’s Girls’ senior school (our sixth form) to study A levels.
Entry to St Paul’s is by competitive examination and interview.
St Paul’s fosters academic excellence, independence of mind and reflects the high aspirations and diversity of London itself. Through our bursary and outreach schemes, we aim to make it possible for any girl with the potential to thrive at St Paul’s to achieve and take up a place, regardless of her family’s financial background. Further details about our bursary scheme can be found here.
