The Sixth Form at Lingfield College celebrates consistently good results at A2 Level. In 2017, over 90% of students gained their first choice university place. Mrs Folkard says “Watching them open their envelopes on Results Day and realising they have gained their chosen university place is a very proud and satisfying moment.”
This year Lingfield College students will start university courses across the country which include; Mathematics at Oxford, Geoscience at Durham, Medicine at Bristol, Civil Engineering at Southampton, English and Film Studies at Exeter, History at Warwick, Marketing at Bournemouth, Sport and Social Science at Bath and Biochemistry at Birmingham.
The students achieve these results through a combination of ability, hard work, superb teaching and the unstinting support they receive. The strong tutorial system in the Sixth Form closely supports the students with their studies and their personal development. We look after them, monitor them closely and offer an array of strategies to help them if they are struggling and to enable them to achieve the highest possible marks and grades. The ways in which students can extend their academic experience are numerous and varied, with new initiatives in place, such as a Pre-U qualification in Global Perspectives and the 4000 word Extended Essay Competition.
Many of them do far better than they or their parents would ever have thought possible. I feel privileged to see the students become articulate, well-educated young men and women. Watching them open their envelopes on Results Day and realising they have got their chosen university place is a very proud moment.
Our Sixth Form Centre offers a modern and dynamic environment for our Sixth Formers, featuring a 150 seater university-style lecture theatre, six teaching rooms, an Apple media suite, a Costa-style coffee shop in our central atrium area, a contemporary common room and quiet study areas. The Centre is specifically designed to complement the School’s existing facilities, giving our senior students more independence, status and technologically advanced facilities.
