Ambitious, compassionate, vibrant, inquisitive, down-to-earth, creative, intelligent: a small selection of words that we would use to describe sixth formers here at Putney.

Educational excellence

Our Sixth Form curriculum has been specifically designed to create an environment closer to university level study, encouraging students to adopt the skills they will need to continue their education at the world’s finest institutions.

Putney’s bespoke LEAP programme (Limitless Education at Putney) will give you the opportunity to explore subjects outside your comfort zone, and to venture beyond the A Level syllabus with challenging lectures, as part of your timetable, designed to stretch, inspire and be intellectually challenging.

Our seminar style teaching combines academic rigour with the chance for you to lead conversation and debate with both your teachers and peers, taking responsibility for your own learning to the next level.

Future Careers

Voted a "Top Ten London Independent School", our results compete with the very best.

Life in the Sixth Form

Academic pursuit makes up just one proportion of a Sixth Form student’s day. They stretch their mind in class and broaden their horizons outside. They pursue co-curricular activities in a supportive environment, which encourages them to try new things.

At Sixth Form, developing the whole person is essential for application for Higher Education. We want to put you in the best position to develop your skills and demonstrate merit both in and outside the classroom.
