Life in the Sixth Form
At Merchant Taylors’ Girls’ School, we aim to provide a broad, balanced and challenging curriculum, in a caring single sex environment. We hope to fulfil the aspirations of the students, teachers and parents using the best of modern technologies, together with traditional teaching methods. We encourage the development of knowledge, skills and confidence for the worlds of study, work and family, as well as within the wider social context. We know that girls leave MTGS as articulate, confident young women, whose achievements both in and outside school are recognised and valued. They leave equipped to go out into the world and make a difference.
A Sixth Form Education at MTGS brings together everything that is best about post 16 education. There is an extensive range of opportunities: academic, extra curricular and social. We are fully committed to offering the experiences in all the areas that top universities look out for: leadership, teamwork, work experience, personal skills and voluntary work.
Our school has earned a well deserved reputation for academic excellence. There are statistics that show that girls perform best at Advanced Level in single sex girls’ schools.
The high quality of teaching here is exacting, knowledgeable and personal; the warmth of student teacher relationships is not at the expense of academic rigour or challenge. The atmosphere in classrooms is calm, friendly and disciplined. Academically, you will be encouraged to stretch yourself, whilst having the chance to develop and excel in many other ways.
Selecting MTGS to take your education forward is a wise choice.
I very much look forward to welcoming you to the learning community of Sixth Form students.
Mrs Claire Tao
