Sixth Form

Stonar is a small, hard-working school where every individual student matters. With small classes (typically 5-14 students), and close working relationships with teachers and mentors, Stonar’s Sixth Form will challenge and support you to achieve your academic potential.

But we’re not just focused on academics. We emphasise personal development via excellent pastoral support, plenty of co-curricular options and an active social programme. We ensure that our boarding and day students are happy, and leave with good self-esteem and the soft skills to complement their academic progress.

Fill in the form to book an in-person visit to get a taste of our exceptional countryside school.

We will closely support you to gain the university place you desire. In fact, 95% of our students gain access to their first choice university, and 65% go on to study at Russell Group institutions. 
Whether you’re sporty, arty or into riding (with the option to gain equestrian qualifications), you'll fit into our small, hardworking community and gain the most from Stonar’s unmatched Sixth Form experience.

I have been supported as an individual every step of the way in my journey at Stonar. Small class sizes, one-on-one lessons and extra support, not just academically but also in my university research and application process, have helped me to achieve my full potentialBella, Sixth Former, 2020

First Choice University




You will study three subjects of your choice (from a choice of 20) and will be guided and advised by your individual mentor and subject teachers throughout to ensure you achieve your best - and you will learn how to study and research for yourself, just as you will at university. 

For a decade, Stonar has been in the UK top ten schools for value added, and in 2021 reached the top 2%.

Hardworking, positive, resilient learners, with an excellent attitude to learning."

Personal Development

Alongside academic work, our Sixth Formers are given the opportunities for personal development they need to become happy and successful young adults. 

A vibrant range of co-curricular opportunities is available, from additional courses in Equestrian, Cookery (including the Leith’s Toolbox), the EPQ and Duke of Edinburgh Awards via our Explorer Scout group.  

Students also take part in drama, music, sport, as well as having access to leadership opportunities via the Prefect team. An active social programme combines events in school with trips out to the theatre, cinema and meals out.

I had plenty of opportunities to develop leadership and I’ve also seen the importance of working in a team.
