Gunnersbury Catholic School

Sixth Form

"Gunnersbury Catholic School is a thriving, vibrant and caring learning community within which pupils are stretched intellectually and foster a love of learning, whilst feeling valued, happy and safe" (OFSTED)

Our Sixth Form provides a truly outstanding education for young men and women in West London and beyond. This was recognised in the May 2009 Ofsted report in which Gunnersbury was judged ‘outstanding’ in all areas of our provision.

Our senior students are high achieving and successful. In 2015, for the 11th year in succession, our ‘A’ Level pass rate was 100% and 30% of all passes were at grades A* and A. Our students go on to study at Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, UCL, York, Durham, King’s College and Warwick, to name a few.


The traditions and values of our school permeate across all aspects of our provision, from Year 7 to Year 13. Gunnersbury is a thriving, vibrant and caring learning community. Ours is a Sixth Form within which students take pride in succeeding at the very top levels, academically, spiritually, socially, on the sports field and in the creative arts.

The two principal components that drive our school’s ethos are our commitment to academic success and to developing the ‘whole person.’ Armed with a positive attitude and commitment to bettering themselves and their life chances, we advocate our senior students to view the Sixth Form as a place to develop interests, to grow as a person, a place to feel a part of and proud of, a place to leave with a brighter future secured.

We believe that in our Sixth Form you will receive an education second to none. Students say teachers at Gunnersbury are knowledgeable, approachable and helpful. Certainly, their goodwill in giving advice and support adds greatly to the quality of our provision and to your future success.

Academic excellence

Excellence in teaching and learning is at the heart of the Gunnersbury Sixth Form curriculum. We have developed an environment in which each young man and woman can reach the highest levels of achievement in their chosen subjects.

With an extensive selection of high-quality courses to choose from, a host of extra-curricular activities and a purpose-built Sixth Form teaching and study centre, we believe that Gunnersbury offers a personalised and enriching experience. We provide learning opportunities that will enable each young man and woman access to the top universities and best employment.
