Keswick School Sixth Form is an exciting and unique place to study: our community is enriched by its range of students and all of them are proud to be part of it.

We welcome applications from students currently at Keswick and from students currently studying in other schools and colleges.

We place immense value on academic achievement, encouraging each and every student to do his or her best. Teaching is excellent. It is delivered by enthusiastic specialists who thoroughly enjoy teaching sixth-formers and strive to see them succeed. Most of our students go on to study at degree level, often in the selective universities of the Russell Group; others are supported in their aspirations to achieve apprenticeships or employment with both local and national companies.

As well as this, we are keen to support the wider development of the individual through a range of other activities, sporting, cultural and community-based, which enhance the transferable skills universities and employers are so keen to see in young applicants. We strive to produce young people who have succeeded academically, are excellent independent learners and who are confident, aspirational and mature.  The vast majority of our sixth formers contribute to the wider life of the school through a well-established coaching and prefect system.  It is a privilege to see them act as excellent role models to our younger students and as ambassadors for the school in the local community.

The pastoral team in the Sixth Form is dedicated, offering superb guidance to students as they learn, and we aim to offer a thriving and inspiring educational environment.  We hope the information on our website is useful, but for further information, you can download the most recent prospectus using the link below.  For any other enquiries, please contact Miss French, Head of Sixth Form at
