You are a Stamfordian
Stamfordians are independent. They are thoughtful, intelligent, lively and curious. They work hard, and they achieve their dreams – safe in the knowledge that every one of us here at Stamford, from teachers, parents, Old Stamfordians and fellow pupils – will support that dream and will cheer you on.Download Sixth Form Prospectus
Sixth Form Offering
Stamford is a vibrant co-educational community, offering 27 A Level courses, 2 BTECs and hundreds of co-curricular opportunities.
Sixth Form is a vital experience in its own right – but it is also the time in your life when you prepare to become an adult, and take the steps that will inform your future life and career. Our Sixth Form programme offers a variety of subjects at A Level, and BTECs in Sport and Business, which means you can choose the subjects you love, and that will equip you with the knowledge and qualifications you need to enter into future study or work.
Alongside your key course at Stamford, you will have the opportunity to complete an Extended Project Qualification in a topic of your choosing, or opt for Skills for Life, which will teach you everything from research skills to survival cookery. You will have access to dozens of co-curricular activities every week, as well as sport, music, drama, debating and outdoor education. Some courses will help you achieve UCAS points towards university entrance, and all of them will add to your skills and experience.
You will also have access to a highly professional and supportive careers programme, which will give you the guidance you need to match your skills and interests to your options after school. We will put you in touch with Old Stamfordians who are already working in the careers you want to pursue, who can offer advice and support. You can, if you choose, opt to board with us – full time, for a few nights each week, or as and when you need it. Your experiences in boarding will help you learn the skills you need for living away from home, and adjust to the new challenges of living with other young people in a safe and supportive environment.

Life after Sixth Form
Sixth Form lasts for two short years – but the friends you make at Stamford will be with you for life. You’re joining a global community of thousands of like-minded people of all ages, who value creativity, hard work, individuality and enthusiasm, and who will become your friends, your mentors, and your inspiration. Our community of Old Stamfordians will start to support you as you move through the Sixth Form, and they will be there for you as you take your first steps beyond school, through dedicated professional networking groups, by providing careers information and advice, and offering help and support.
As an Old Stamfordian, we will help you keep in touch with old friends, and we will organise events and get-togethers all over the world that make it easy for you to make the most of opportunities after your time as a student has finished.Stamford Community
