Life beyond GCSEs

Planning for your A-Levels should consider not only where your subject choices are but also where your success will be nurtured and your real potential revealed. Choosing where to meet the aspirations of what your next stage looks like is daunting, but consider:

  • Where you choose, matters to the end result and being serious in your choice can be as important as working hard or having natural ability
  • Studying together with your peers and having face to face tutoring is important in helping you learn and grow
  • Who has the most vested interest in your long-term career pathway
  • Being successful in your tertiary pursuits is more than exam grades. Where will your natural abilities be developed and where will you learn the additional skills to maximise your potential

Sixth Form life at St Clare’s

Life in the Sixth Form is both challenging and exciting. We are a non-selective school with an impressive academic record as you will see from our results. At St Clare’s, every individual matters within the school community and we are rightly proud of our high standards of behaviour and pastoral care, together with our well-qualified and dedicated staff. Plus, we provide many self-development opportunities aside from academic challenge to expand student interests and leadership ability. We also have a transport network to the school from Swansea SA1, Neath, Briton Ferry, Port Talbot, Bridgend, Cowbridge and Llantrisant.

Education today is fundamental preparation for the future and should be provided in partnership between staff, pupil and parents to succeed in the highly competitive higher education marketplace. We are confident that we provide the best opportunities for life beyond school and are therefore a natural choice for serious Sixth Formers who want to stretch their ambition and be more than they imagine!

As parents you will rightly consider the cost of sending your child to private school. Here at St Clare’s School, we understand that parents want flexibility in the way they pay their fees. There are different options available to parents, from paying termly in advance by direct debit or if you would like even greater flexibility, monthly through the School Fee Plan.
