Sixth Form Our Day

Our Day

The Sixth Form Centre is the base for students to work, relax, meet teachers and plan their future

Everything a Sixth Former needs in one space.  

There is no such thing as a typical day in Sixth Form. Days are never the same and always varied. Students arrive for morning registration which is a chance to catch up with their form tutor, receive notices and debate live matters of the day.  Some then may head to lessons, grab a coffee or work in our study areas. Lunchtimes are a chance to attend clubs or head to The Barn, our coffee shop, for a catch-up. After School there is always something going on and students may find a member of staff to talk work through, use supervised study, attend clubs or enjoy a variety of evening events on offer throughout the year including concerts, charity nights or socials.

The Sixth Form Centre is a specialist area of the School exclusive to our oldest students. Comprising two study rooms with desks for each student, power sources for laptops, a common room, kitchen and university and careers library, students enjoy learning and socialising here.

As a space for meetings, forming friendships, private study and catching up with teachers, the Sixth Form Centre is home to lively debate and the exciting atmosphere which makes our Sixth Form unique.

There is also the opportunity for Day Boarding where pupils can join the boarders for breakfast and supper in the Dining Hall, as well as the option of flexi-boarding during crucial exam times.

Our Food

St Margaret’s offers a great range of food choices which reflects our diverse community and their meal preferences.

A good number in our community are vegetarian. On a daily basis there are 10 varieties of salad, a Chef Special of the Day; there is always soup and bread; 10 hot dishes offering a choice of vegan, vegetarian and non-vegetarian; one hot dessert, five different dessert pots and our legendary cakes. There is something for even the fussiest of eaters.

Pupils’ dietary requirements are always considered when preparing meals, and we are pleased to say that we are a nut-free school.

Our caterers work closely with our students to ensure we are keeping everyone involved and well fed. Special and important days are celebrated through the menu and help connect our pupils from different nationalities. The take-away nights and treat nights as well as BBQ events and Sixth form pizza nights are all important dates in the calendar.
