Life as a Sixth-Former at The Laurels

From the minute you walk through the door, you know we are different; there is a warm, family atmosphere – we all know each other and you will never feel lost.

But, at the same time, you will have a lot of independence – you have study periods, you don’t have formal registration and you can choose to be off-site when you don’t have classes.

You will also have a lot of support because you have your own personal tutor with whom you meet regularly to discuss how you are getting on, how you can improve and will help you stay on track. Read more

You will take part in the Laurels Arete programme, which will give you so many opportunities to grow and discover new horizons in all areas of your life.

You will be expected to study really hard and be pro-active in your learning but you will be helped to achieve the very best you can.

You will get to know your teachers extremely well as our teaching groups are small and tailored to you.

You are expected to be smart and dress in a professional manner in clothes which would be considered suitable for a formal job interview. Read more

You will be encouraged to develop and deepen your faith.

Your life as a VI-Former will be as good as you choose to make it – you will have every opportunity to flourish, thrive and be happy.
