#KESWClassroom Sixth Form

Lower Sixth

In Lower Sixth, pupils will continue with their current Sixth Form timetable. Individual teachers will ensure that pupils have a mix of face-to-face lessons using Zoom alongside opportunities to work through problems with teacher support through Microsoft Teams or Google Docs and to work independently. We will also be continuing with the Lower Sixth Programme of support for university applications and preparation for the wider world of work and study.

All work will earn KESW Credits, with staff providing opportunities for pupils to earn Elective Credits through extension tasks.

Upper Sixth: Skills for Future Success

We have created a bespoke course for our Upper Sixth pupils that will ensure that they leave school prepared for both the world of work and university study. There are three strands to this course:


  • Preparation for undergraduate study
  • Participation in MOOCs (open online courses)
  • Research skills, including using a university library and preparing a literature review
  • Guided instruction in wider reading
  • Analytical reading for academic purposes


  • Seeking and securing part-time work
  • Adjusting to the world of work
  • Connecting up higher education and career opportunities
  • Preparing the ultimate CV
  • Setting up internships and work experience

Life skills

  • Managing a budget, bills, taxes and shopping for food
  • Cooking, household maintenance and self-care
  • Finding and sharing accommodation
  • Fitness, well-being and stress management
  • Negotiation and conflict resolution skills

Our Upper Sixth pupils may participate in #KESWCertificates and will earn credits for their participation in all of these opportunities. We believe that it will be a useful addition to CVs so that our students can demonstrate that they have used their lockdown time effectively to extend their learning and understanding of the wider world.
