Welcome to Sixth Form
Virtual Open Morning
We find ourselves in unprecedented times and we at Culford are doing all we can to keep operating as normally as possible. In these pages you will find a selection of video messages from members of staff, photo and video galleries, along with lots of other useful information.
To make children ready for life means developing them into flexible, innovative, dynamic and resilient young adults. The first three are key values in a world in which change is the only constant; and young adults also need to learn resilience as failures and setbacks sometimes lead to our greatest successes.
Culford has a longstanding tradition of offering Scholarships, which are worth up to 25% of fees, and Exhibitions, which are smaller awards worth up to 10% of fees, to recognise and encourage pupils who show real talent and potential.
Application forms for 16+ Scholarships are available from the Admissions Office : Call 01284 385308 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline for 2020/21 Sixth Form Scholarships is Friday 13 November 2020.
Live Parent Q&A
Saturday 3rd October 2020, 10:00am
Thank you to those of you who joined the Head of Sixth Form, Stephen Arbuthnot, for his live Q&A last Saturday. If you were unable to attend the session, a recording has now been added to this page.
If you have any further questions for Mr Arbuthnot, you can email him directly at SArbuthnot@culford.co.uk.
To further enrich the academic experience at Culford we operate a year-round, Scholars’ and Gifted & Talented Programme. This sees a series of academics and other experts in their field come to Culford to address pupils on a particular theme. Recent themes have included politics and languages and give pupils the chance to gain even greater insight and passions for their chosen areas of study.
Opened in September 2015, the modern Paddy and Scott’s café at Culford School is located in the Sports and Tennis Centre and is for the use of parents, Sixth Form pupils and Sports and Tennis Centre members.
Culford Sixth Formers have exclusive use of Paddy and Scott’s café from 10.30am-3.00pm every week day. In the style of a university campus, Sixth Formers use it as a place for meeting socially, discussing work projects and enjoying a light lunch, or treating themselves to a coffee and piece of cake.
At lunchtime Sixth Formers can enjoy soup, paninis, sandwiches, wraps, salads and fruit.
