Welcome to our Sixth Form

Academic excellence in a caring community

Sacred Heart of Mary Girls’ School is one of the top performing post-16 providers locally.

In August 2019 we had the highest APS per A-level Entry in Havering at 38.68. 30% of candidates achieved grade A*/A and over 60% achieved grade A*- B. In addition to this we are highly successful with the vocational courses that we offer.

This success is due to the partnership between highly committed staff and students and an ethos underpinned by the school motto “Ut Vitam Habeant” encouraging all students to be the best that they can be and ‘Live life to the full’.

In addition to this our students are provided with opportunities to develop holistically as an individual. This could be through our enrichment activity programme, for example PE, Music, Drama, IT skills; participation in Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme; developing leadership and mentoring skills as prefects; attending one of our many overseas trips, for example Geography trip to Iceland, History trip to Poland, Art trip to Paris, MFL work experience in Italy, Ecology trip to Zanzibar.

Students can continue to develop their faith journey through our links with BCYS and Walsingham House, becoming a member of the Chaplaincy Team or a Eucharistic Minister.

We have a dedicated Sixth Form block where the majority of lessons take place – unless they are lessons which require specialist rooms. In addition to this we have the Independent Study Centre; this is a silent study space fully equipped with computers and books to allow students to use their study periods without being disturbed.

New this year is the ‘Snack Shack’! This is for exclusive use by Sixth Form students allowing them quick access to food and drinks.

We look forward to you joining us for your continued journey.
