Welcome to Sixth Form
We believe in high expectations, moral purpose, and opportunities!
High Expectations have meant that we have many students studying at Russell Group universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. Over 90% of our Sixth Form students progress to university. The remainder choose to go into high-quality positions at prestigious establishments, such as the Bank of England. Our A Levels results put us in the top 25% of Sixth Forms nationally, according to ALPS.
We have had students at Oxbridge studying Medicine, Maths, English, Politics, Economics, Philosophy, and Psychology, which is a testament to the outstanding teaching in all areas of the curriculum here at La Retraite Sixth Form, inspired by our very own Fiona Asiedu who has completed her MA at Harvard (more information can be found here).
As a Catholic Sixth Form, we ensure students leave La Retraite with a sense of Moral Purpose to enable them to be successful future citizens of society.
Opportunities are key to encouraging social mobility for all of our students. We have developed an 'Old Girls Network' through the establishment of an Alumni Society, to ensure high-quality Work Experience placements are accessible to all. For more information on our Alumni, please click here.
Throughout your time at La Retraite Sixth Form, many extra-curricular opportunities will be offered to you. Recently, Sixth Form students travelled to New York, Barcelona, Iceland, Italy, and Switzerland. Next year, we are off to Washington and Disneyland Paris!
Most of all, we want students leaving La Retraite to be well-rounded and balanced young women and men, who have choices before them and are ready to take their place in a world which respects them for who they are.
