Riverston Sixth Form
The atmosphere an
Year 11 students moving into the Sixth Form are joined by a few students from outside of Riverston seeking a smaller nurturing environment in which to learn the necessary life skills for the future.
There are many opportunities to 'take the lead' either as Prefects, House Captains or through the schools own Leadership Award programme or the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. At the beginning of Y12 the prefects attend a leadership residential course in readiness to undertake their duties within the school community.
For students undertaking courses in Hospitality and Catering or Children’s Care Learning and Development opportunities arise to gain valuable work expereince placements within the school setting.
Links with colleges outside of Riverston, for example Hadlow College in Mottingham, allow students to undertake courses in animal management and horticulture.
The social aspects of being a Sixth Former should not be overlooked and activities and events are arranged throughout the year to compliment the diverse curriculum. Students have a completely separate suite of rooms with their own kitchen, toilet facilities and common room. This is ideally situated away from the main school to promote independence and privacy.
Students wishing to enter the sixth form are invited into the school for an assessment period to ascertain any additional learning support that might be required and to be sure that the most appropriate courses are available and suit the students desired career path.
In the first instance, we recommend visiting the school on one of the Open Days or to make an appointment with the Deputy Headmaster Mr PD Salathiel.
Our next Open Day is on Saturday 14th November from 10:30- 13:00 and we look forward to welcoming you to Riverston School.
