Why choose The John Roan Sixth Form?

The John Roan Sixth Form is based at our Maze Hill site, a beautiful 1920s building overlooking Greenwich Park, where over 200 students are working towards A-Levels and Level 3 BTEC qualifications.  

We are a deliberately smaller Sixth Form, which allows us to have a focus on each of our students as individuals. Our overarching focus is to get our Sixth Form students to the destination of their dreams, whether that be university, an apprenticeship or in a workplace. Each of our students should leave us set up for success when they get there. We do this by providing an environment that challenges all students to reach their full potential.   

The core principles that guide our Sixth Form are those qualities which we hope our students will leave us embodying: inspired confident and ambitious. We aspire that at our Sixth Form, students will be inspired by our commitment to their destinations. They will feel confident in their abilities and prospects because of our teaching and curriculum and they will be ambitious because of the opportunities we provide.  

Our Sixth Formers dress smartly and are role models for the rest of the school community, showcasing our whole school PRIDE values of proud, respectful, involved, determined and excellent.   

Over the last three years, our Sixth Form has gone from strength to strength: the number of students enrolling with us has more than doubled and our students also have increasing ambition: this year, 32% of students went to Russell Group universities, including Cambridge and to study Medicine, compared to the national figure of 8%.

We welcome students from across London. Join our safe, happy and respectful community where everyone’s voice is heard. We welcome students from all over London.
