Educating the mind without educating
the heart is no education at all.

Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at Holyport College will ensure that its students achieve the best futures of which they are capable: futures in which they will be happy, successful and well informed members of the global community; futures in which they will be both interesting and interested and in which they will always understand and cherish the value of learning for its own sake; futures in which they will be resilient, self-reliant and morally upstanding adults whatever their chosen paths and futures in which they will have the necessary qualifications and personal attributes to choose these paths wisely.

We believe that, in preparing our students for a university education at Oxbridge, Russell Group Universities or other institutions with global reputations for excellence, we are giving them the best possible opportunity to achieve these futures. Our curriculum is constructed with this pathway singularly in mind, its emphasis being on academic, “facilitating” A-Level subjects and our culture, standards and expectations will reflect this aspiration through all aspects of College life.

As a boarding school, we have an opportunity to act as a bridge between school and university where our students can enjoy an independent yet supported approach to their studies. Likewise, our relationship with Eton College offers opportunities for enrichment, extension and depth of learning which will be unparalleled in state education.

Holyport College was established to offer a very high standard of state funded education: an education with higher aspirations and higher expectations; an education founded on a sense of community, collaboration and mutual respect; an education which does not offer excuses, cut corners or look for shortcuts; an education predicated on the fundamental tenet that our students can achieve standards on a par with the best schools in the country, be they state funded or independent. Our Sixth Form will be the embodiment of this vision and our students will be testament to it
