The last two years of secondary education are critical, both academically and holistically. Our Sixth Form is a distinct step in the HCS journey that allows pupils the freedom to become young adults with the support to ensure they are the best version of themselves.

Learn, thrive, succeed

Your Sixth Form experience is the chapter in your life you will remember and cherish forever. It’s a time to explore who you are and who you want to be. You will leave us with far more than outstanding academic results. Together, we’ll ensure you are prepared for the future and excited about the journey ahead.

Becoming real-world ready

Our sixth form experience is about more than academic success. Through the integrated use of technology and our university-accredited Diploma, you will develop the knowledge, experience and skills to become a fulfilled and valued citizen that’s ready for the real world.

The HCS Diploma

The refurbished sixth form centre, [with its] blonde wood and very calm atmosphere, offers spaces for silent study and quiet discussion and gives students a base of their own.



Sixth Form students thrive beyond the classroom, exploring passions beyond their academic studies and pursuing personal growth through the diverse range of activities we offer.
