The Sixth Form years at BGS are an exciting time, when the decisions you take begin to shape your future. You’ll gain more independence and also be expected to take more responsibility for your own learning.

There is so much to consider when choosing where to study at Sixth Form and what courses you should follow. Whatever your aims and ambitions, the Sixth Form at Bristol Grammar School can offer you all the support and guidance you need to get there. Every year we welcome a large number of new students into our Sixth Form. It’s a warm and friendly community and you’ll quickly feel at home and become a part of the BGS family.

There are around 300 students in the Sixth Form at BGS and our size is one of our great strengths. Academically, it means BGS can offer you the choice of around 30 A level courses, as well as the International Baccalaureate (IB) from September 2018. Small class sizes, specialist teachers and up-to-date equipment and facilities will provide you with all you need to achieve the excellent results for which BGS students are known.

Whether you choose the A level or the International Baccalaureate route, you will be part of the energetic and supportive place that is BGS Sixth Form.  Study and socialising go hand in hand to create an atmosphere of friendship and a strong sense of community as you move into the final stage of your school career.
