What is expected?
Pupils in the sixth are our next generation of leaders.
Sixth formers are seen as role models and must therefore act in an adult manner at all times. You may also be asked to act as a mentor to younger pupils, as well as take on whole school roles such as ‘Prefect’ which entails additional responsibilities.
If you choose St. Louis 6th form you have shown you have decided to further your learning, that you want to be here. Therefore you are expected to behave in a responsible manner at all times, to be punctual to school and to lessons, and to make good use of your spare time in the study room and common room facilities.
You are also expected to dress appropriately. A full list of school uniform for sixth formers is included in the welcome pack. 6th formers should take pride in their appearance.
You are encouraged to give back, to volunteer, to take part, to be all you can be.
As a St. Louis sixth form pupil you are:
- expected to work independently
- expected to work collaboratively and to show respect to teachers and fellow students
- expected to succeed!
In order to succeed in 6th form, pupils should be aware of the ‘achievement triangle’. These three points lead to overall success:
Not all pupils start with the same ability, but this will develop over the duration of the course provided you study effectively.
There is a clear link between attendance and achievement. Every lesson missed may contain vital information required for exams.
Pupils must want to succeed - you cannot afford to take a passive approach to your studies.
I have loved every minute of my 7 years at St Louis and being Head Boy was an unexpected but fantastic way to end my time at school. The role has allowed me to develop my confidence through the many public speaking opportunities that I have been involved in, all of which I have enjoyed. I appreciate all the help and the encouragement the teachers who have taught me throughout the years have given me, and I feel that they have helped me prepare for the transition to university.

As Head Girl, I have been given many opportunities which have completed 7 fantastic years at St Louis.
The community atmosphere and the support from teachers is why this school thrives and these are a few of the many aspects I have enjoyed during my time here. I am thankful for all I have received and hope to continue in university like I have in St Louis.
