Sixth Form and University progression

Many of our International School students go on to study their A-Levels at our Sixth Form site


The Sixth Form is the largest of our sites and effectively prepares students for university and beyond. At the Sixth Form, 35 A-Level subjects are currently on offer, plus a comprehensive academic enrichment programme to stretch our students beyond the standard curriculum. The broad range of academic subjects that students can access makes d’Overbroeck’s an ideal place for bright, ambitious students to achieve their full potential academically, but also a place they can thrive outside of the standard curriculum. We offer a range of co-curricular activities for students to get involved in across drama, music, and sport, and an extensive list of clubs and activities.

Additionally, we offer a packed programme of trips, excursions, and regular social events. Many students at the Sixth Form choose to do an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) as part of their academic enrichment activities. The majority of students go on to university, and we have an excellent record of success with entry to Oxford and Cambridge, Russell Group, and international institutions, as well as prestigious medical, law, veterinary and art schools. We offer significant Higher Education and Careers support including application writing advice and interview practice. We work with each individual student to help them meet their potential. Our Sixth Form develops students to have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge; who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically; and who excel in traditional academic subjects.

"I decided to study at d’Overbroeck’s because it is in Oxford where I would like to go to university. The teaching and academic progress you make here is great. At d'Overbroeck's we can make many friends; we respect each other and there is a lovely atmosphere."

Whilst approximately half of our International School students continue to study at d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form, others choose to continue their studies at other leading UK schools. Some students progress on to an IB programme, whilst others prefer a change of locations or to go to a single-sex school for their sixth form studies. At d’Overbroeck’s, we help every student to achieve their ambitions, whatever their future plans may be.
