The Bishop’s Stortford College Sixth Form presents a fresh start and new opportunities to all students, both our own Upper Fifth pupils and those joining us from other schools in the UK or overseas. New Sixth Formers find themselves in a new and rapidly developing environment, one which challenges and stimulates in equal measure. Such is the powerful sense of community that exists in the Sixth Form, everyone (whether new to the school or an old hand) settles in quickly.
We offer a wide range of A level subjects.
Design & Technology
Drama & Theatre Studies
Maths & Further Maths
In considering your Sixth Form course, it is important to:
- choose subjects which you really enjoy and want to study;
- choose subjects for which you have some aptitude;
- choose subjects which enable you to build an academic profile suited to your eventual university or career aspirations;
- think carefully about a subject which you have not taken for GCSE such as Psychology, Economics or Business Studies, to make sure that you understand what the course demands.

Sutton House, one of the three Boys’ Day Houses at Bishop’s Stortford College. Our aim is to provide an open and friendly environment to encourage all the boys to participate fully in all aspects of College life, thus ensuring that they get the most possible from their time at the College.
Welcome to Tee House, the newest of the three Girls’ Day Houses, opened in September 2008 by Richard Tee and members of his family. Tee House is the only House which includes a flexi boarding unit for girls who want to board part time at school.
There are usually around sixty girls in the House. Each year group has its own study room where everyone has plenty of space to work. There is a kitchen where the girls can make toast at break times, and ample changing rooms with lockers for sports kits. The girls of all year groups socialise and relax together in the large comfortable common room.
