Life at


The Sixth Form at King’s School Rochester is where the foundations are built for each individual to have an extraordinary career.

Pupils are given the freedom and guidance to pursue their own specialisms and explore what destinations they wish to aim for. A-level study at King’s has far smaller study groups and a much more mature relationship with teachers and peers.

Crucial skills, such as time management and organisation, are developed during these two years, with pupils having a greater responsibility to manage independent study and personal workloads.

We also foster the development of practical competences, for instance leadership and team working, as preparation for the world beyond A-Level.

We encourage our pupils to focus their studies upon three or four A-Level subjects, plus the option of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which greatly improves their opportunities with the best universities.

As Sixth Form is an intense two years, we ensure that our pupils are well supported so that they can make the most of their final chapter at King’s. In the Lower Sixth, our pupils’ academic progress is supported through the King’s Extend Programme which features the award-winning Ivy House Award and has a strategic focus on UCAS, apprenticeships and career planning in the Upper Sixth.
