Sixth Form

Welcome to SFH6, the joint Sixth Form of Sydenham and Forest Hill: two successful and popular schools working together in Post 16 education since the early 1970s.
SFH6 is a dynamic and forward looking Sixth Form with very high standards.  We ask our students to take responsibility for their own learning and we believe in the rights of all to achieve at the highest possible level.
We value aspiration, drive, energy and ambition.  We expect our students to be motivated, focused and willing to contribute at school, in the community and beyond.  We challenge them to become well balanced young people who make good decisions and respond to change with confidence and optimism.
All Year 11 students attending the Forest Hill and Sydenham Schools are able to apply for places at SFH6. In addition, we reserve a number of places for students from other schools. Further details of how to apply for a place at SFH6 are available on this website and from the schools.
“The leadership of the sixth form, which is run jointly with Sydenham School, is effective.”

“Leaders have high expectations of themselves, staff and students.”

“Arrangements for careers information, advice and guidance are strong.”

“The quality of teaching is good.”

“Students are challenged effectively and given work that interests and motivates them.”

“Students, including disadvantaged students, make increasingly good progress.”

“Progression to education, employment or training is strong, as is the proportion going to top universities.”
