Life as a Sixth Form Student

Life As A Sixth Form Student

A good balance between work and leisure pursuits.

We foster a good mix between work and downtime so that everyone gets the most of their final years at Stonar. Social events in-house including cocktail and canapé evenings, formal dinners and the Christmas party are combined with trips throughout the year such as meals out, shopping trips, cinema visits and much more.

I was well prepared for life after school. Stonar provides many opportunities to develop independence and strength of character; with a huge range of trips, inspirational visiting speakers and the many charitable projects the school is involved with."


York House

York House is our dedicated Sixth Form boarding house and designed to provide a pre-university experience.We encourage independence and individual responsibility for organising time, be it for study, sport or socialising.

Modern, comfortable facilities:
  • Large common room
  • Kitchen and laundry room
  • Mix of single and twin study bedrooms
  • Private garden for quiet study or relaxing 

York is also the social hub of the Sixth Form. Day pupils and boarders can use the common area at break and lunchtimes. The Ancient Library Club, the Sixth Form bar, provides a space for boarders and day students to mingle and relax. The space is used for formal and informal events, whether that’s a wine and cheese evening, a movie night or a celebration such as Chinese New Year.

Boarding in the Sixth Form was such a great experience. Everyone was very focused on their work, which encouraged a really good atmosphere for study, as well as having teachers on hand to help with any problems. But we also had plenty of fun unwinding together at the end of the week."
