About the School

Like other areas of our School we have chosen to restrict the size of our Sixth Form so that it is big enough to offer the choice and opportunities needed, but small enough to ensure that clear, individual short, medium and long-term goals can be set and effectively monitored.

In the Sixth Form we offer a programme of academic A Levels because we feel that this best suits our students. We believe that A Levels still offer a depth and rigour not to be found elsewhere. Their flexibility allows us to construct individual programmes to suit each pupil. They remain an excellent preparation for the good universities which are the next step for the vast majority of our leavers.

The final two Years at Lewes Old Grammar School offer a richly rewarding experience that prepares our students for university and beyond.  Sixth Formers are encouraged to take on responsibility for their own work but within a framework of support and guidance. Each year we welcome new students from other schools who wish to take advantage of the special expertise we offer and to gain a head start in preparing for university and life beyond school.
