Fact of the day: Jesse Owens was a track and field star. His most famous moment came in the 1936 Olympics when he won four gold medals – much to the annoyance of Hitler and the Nazi party who hoped the Olympics would be a showcase for Aryan supremacy

Join our Sixth Form!

Advice for parents with children thinking about their sixth form choices

For students in our school, sixth form is the perfect bridge to adult life. 

As a campus within the Harris Sixth Form, we offer all the benefits of being part of a large group (including a huge choice of courses) while maintaining the stability and close teacher-student relationships that can only be offered in a smaller environment.  

Students are allowed and encouraged to grow into young adults, but all this takes place in an environment where they are looked after properly without being left to drift. 

Although most of our places are reserved for students already at the school, one of the highlights each September is welcoming new sixth formers who choose to join from elsewhere.

Our sixth form is co-educational, so we welcome applications from girls and boys. For enquiries about availability, please contact the Principal’s PA, Clair Standing: C.Standing@harrisbromley.org.uk.

If you have younger children, it is never too early to begin talking to them about their sixth form education. To help give you an insight into these two very important years, we asked our sixth former Chloe Leigh to write a few words:

“We all know that it can be a stressful time for students when making the transition from GCSE level to A-level. A thousand and one questions run through your mind: is this the right place for me to go? Will I be comfortable there? Do they have everything I need to accommodate my subjects?

These are all questions I asked myself in the run up to starting Year 12. However, when I arrived at Harris Girls Academy Bromley on my first day in September 2015, all of the anxiety I had been experiencing had melted away, and not a single question I had to ask went unanswered.

When welcoming new students into the first year of sixth form, staff are aware of the stresses and worries that these students will be feeling. They are very supportive not just at the start of the year, but throughout the two years of studying. You are always guaranteed to have somebody on-hand if you need any help.

Teachers are aware that there is a jump from GCSE to A Level, and will happily adjust the work they set if students need a little help to begin with. Students are also treated as responsible adults, which makes settling in much easier.

The new building provides excellent new facilities for us and a new study base.

The support we get continues into year 13, particularly with our UCAS applications. This is where students revisit those familiar feelings that we were faced with when choosing a sixth form to attend, although this time around it is with universities!

However, we get a lot of support this time around with help and advice from our tutors on which universities to choose and how to write our personal statements and applications.

Having been there for nearly two years, I can say that the academy welcomes its sixth formers with open arms and caters to the needs of each student. Whatever someone wants to study, and whatever they need to help them, the academy is more than happy to assist!”
