Sixth Form

I am very proud of the Sixth Form at St Mary’s. I believe it is an exceptional place to study. Our A level teachers are hard working and enthusiastic, all academic specialists in their subject areas.

The culture at St Mary’s is one of teachers working really closely with their sixth form students, being very generous with their time to support and develop our students. Sixth Form lessons are calm and purposeful; students can enjoy being enthusiastic and eager to contribute – because that is the norm here.

The atmosphere in St Mary’s Sixth Form is very friendly and supportive. We have very high expectations of conduct and behaviour; students treat each other with kindness and respect. One of the first things you will notice is how polite and courteous we are with each other.

Sixth Form tutors and senior Pastoral staff in St Mary’s Sixth Form offer a great deal of support and advice. I am particularly proud of how we prepare students for their applications to university and work. Finally our facilities are superb. We have excellent individual study areas for quiet work as well as group study rooms and a wonderful all-day cafeteria exclusively for Sixth Form.

As I say, an exceptional place to study A levels.

Message form the Head Boy and Head Girl


Hi, I’m Shazaad Ladha. I am a member of the School Council and the recently elected Head Boy for St Mary’s. Since joining the school in Y7, I have always looked up to the council as a group of students who represent the values of St Mary’s. I hope to uphold this high standard and represent the school to the best of my ability. I will use every opportunity to give back to the school and I feel honoured to be in a position where I can create change and have a positive impact on the school community.

Hi, I’m Alessandra Mauriello and I am proud to say that I am the newly elected Head Girl at St Mary’s. I view the opportunity I have been given as a member of the school council as extremely valuable, the chance to contribute to our community and offer my support especially to younger years means a lot to me. As a student of St Mary’s since Year 7, I have looked up to the council as role models of the school and I am happy to represent and maintain the positive St Mary’s attitude previous councils have shown. I look forward to giving my time, support, and encouragement as a representative of St Mary’s.
