The Sixth Form at d'Overbroeck's: Our Sixth Form students are a mix of our own Year 11 students and over 130 new students each year from other schools. Most students are from the UK but we have a significant proportion from abroad with over 30 nationalities. There is a wide range of 35 A level subject choices in any combination, plus enrichment for Oxbridge/Medicine/ Law, etc. Teaching is interactive and motivating in small classes where students gain confidence in expressing themselves more effectively, questioning and debating. The Sixth Form offers a superb transition from school to university. Our pastoral care is regularly praised by students and parents. Strong in supporting and encouraging students, d'Overbroeck's is very much a 'people place' where each individual thrives.
First name terms highlight our collaborative approach, which is underpinned by a high level of mutual respect. Each student has a Director of Studies who meets with them individually to discuss progress. A busy sports and activities programme runs across the school with very strong arts, drama and music departments, with brand new facilities for performing arts in a brand new Sixth Form building.
