Sixth Form at The Grammar School at Leeds has its own distinct identity, which is deliberate as pupils continue to forge their own whether they have been at the school since they were 3 years old or have joined us from another school to study A-levels. There’s a lot going on inside every sixth former – our tutors and staff understand. That’s why we are dedicated to looking after them, because in our experience, happy students have a better chance of getting the grades they desire to achieve their ambitions whether that be to attend some of the best universities, secure a place on a prestigious apprenticeship programme or simply take a gap year before deciding which path they want to follow.
We have created a vibrant, caring and successful community with an individual approach to teaching. We deliver a tailored platinum service, where every student has their own personal tutor and lessons are in small tutor groups of less than 20 students to achieve excellence across an extensive range of A-level subjects which best suit their passion and ambitions, and are not limited by the timetable.
Inspirational and insightful speakers support our enthusiastic and experienced tutors. A number are our alumni so our students can see where a GSAL education can take them. They open our students’ eyes to the exciting opportunities that lie ahead at university and the tough, competitive challenges of the real world. We recognise that our students are entering an ever-changing and competitive world so we have invested heavily to help our students prepare for the next stage of their lives by creating a well-resourced careers and HE centre, expanding our Oxbridge support team and providing numerous opportunities for students to develop their leadership, teamwork and communication skills.
Well-rounded, confident with a sense of purpose and ready to spread their wings. That is how students emerge from their sixth form experience at The Grammar School at Leeds.
