Culford School
Sixth formers enjoy a high degree of independence and freedom. From the moment pupils join us and embark on their Freshers’ Week Adventure, it is obvious that this is not an ordinary school.

Welcome from the Head of Sixth Form


Culford Sixth Form is the perfect place to take that important next step towards adulthood and the future. It involves the ideal combination of support for academic excellence, with the opportunity to develop into a well-rounded and confident individual.

I believe passionately that study at this level should be rigorous and challenging, but that it should also be accompanied by plenty of chances to explore and develop interests and skills. Culford Sixth Form offers young people a wide range of academic subjects taught by outstanding teachers, with the latest technology and resources. It also offers something less tangible, but equally as important; the confidence to approach the wider world with optimism and enthusiasm. Plentiful leadership opportunities, world class activity schedules and a full range of sports combine with our excellent pastoral care and individualised learning programmes.

Culford Sixth Form is also about rewarding effort with a chance to have some fun and the mantra of work hard, play hard is central to what we do. Therefore, there are plenty of opportunities to take part in dinners, balls and trips to run alongside the academic challenge of the curriculum. These both enhance our sense of community, but also represent a well-earned prize after the academic day is completed.

I look forward to welcoming you to Culford Sixth Form. The challenges are great, but the rewards are greater.

I have been able to pursue my passion, win a place at the National Youth Film Academy and secure a job at a leading marketing agency. This would not have been possible without Culford's support.

Culford has influenced me in such a positive way, especially Mr Dodd. He taught me so much about the game of golf and passed on valuable knowledge I will take with me as I head to America.

Culford helped to set me up for the future by teaching me how to interact with the public and by giving me the confidence to believe in myself.

Culford has shown me there is more to life than academics. It's important to balance your time and make time for your friends.
