Sixth Form

Benenden’s Sixth Form provides girls with increased independence and responsibility in a supportive environment, and is the ideal bridge for their next step in life.

Known as Founders, in recognition of the three Housemistresses who founded Benenden, the Sixth Form is central to Benenden life and offers girls a highly distinctive experience from the Lower School.

The most recognisable distinctions are that Sixth Formers have their own uniform, they live in the dedicated Founders Houses and the Upper Sixth, or Six Two, are allowed to navigate the site on scooters!

Girls on Scooters

However, there is far more to being a Founders girl than these most visible elements: Benenden is proud to have a superb record of success at A Level, and frequently outperforms even the highly-selective Kent grammar schools, girls benefit from an enviable list of expert speakers and all Sixth Formers take part in our Professional Skills Programme.
