Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form provides a truly outstanding education for young men and women in West London and beyond. Gunnersbury has an excellent record of success in public examinations and academic standards are exceptionally high; our A level results regularly place us amongst the top state schools in the country with the majority of our students continuing their studies at top universities. Our senior students are high achieving and successful.  Year on year our ‘A’ Level pass rate has been 100%, with students securing grades A* and A well above the national average. Gunnersbury Sixth Formers go on to study at Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College, UCL, York, Durham, King’s College and St Andrews, to name a few.

Once again, in 2023, our sixth form success placed Gunnersbury amongst the best institutions for student progression and care.

Students who continue their studies in the Sixth Form or join us from other schools settle in very quickly. We believe that this is because of the excellent pastoral care provided by the Sixth Form team, as well as the friendly and welcoming nature of our students.

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. As always, we encourage students and parents to find about as much as they can about new subjects before making final decisions about courses for next year.

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.

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.
