Sixth Form Destinations

Finishing at PGHS is just the beginning for our Year 11 pupils. Our girls have access to the wide-ranging variety of sixth form courses available in North London and further afield.  We have excellent links with top institutions which welcome our girls into their sixth form. PGHS girls are popular with these establishments because of their positive attitude to learning, their first-class GCSE results and the excellent ‘all-round’ education they receive at our School. Our pupils study a wide range of subjects for A-Level (or International Baccalaureate) and go on to higher education at internationally respected universities.

Our highly experienced staff offer carefully tailored advice to girls about subject choices, always considering a pupil’s abilities, skills and preferences. We actively encourage our pupils to look beyond A-Levels, to university, before making their final sixth form choices. Our Careers Advice & Guidance Curriculum transition programme supports them throughout this process and pupils can access further university information on-line via Morrisby.

We always enjoy reuniting with our former pupils who return to PGHS on a regular basis to speak to girls, staff and parents about their sixth form, university and careers experience.  Alumnae have studied a wide range of subjects at degree level at top universities such as Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Imperial, King’s London, Leeds, LSE, Oxford, Manchester, Nottingham, UCL. Following success at university, subsequent careers include accountancy, education, engineering, law, journalism, medicine and veterinary science. 

“The personal development of pupils is excellent and by the time they leave the school, they have developed moral and social values to guide them well in adult life.”
