Sixth Form BEYOND THE
CLASSROOM

Scroll to content

There’s an amazing choice of activities outside the curriculum to get involved in as a Brighton Girls Sixth Former. Whether it’s championing our charity initiatives as a Guild Rep, or nourishing leadership and teamwork skills by being a House Captain.

Co-Curricular

It is so important for our students’ wellbeing that they have a broad education which extends beyond the classroom and we are delighted to be able to offer such a wide variety of exciting, co-curricular clubs here at Brighton Girls.

Sport

There’s a huge range of sports to choose from. From the more traditional netball, hockey, and gymnastics to less familiar sports like paddle- boarding and bouldering.

Performing arts

Dance is also well served, with an opportunity to participate in both the annual school dance show and a national dance competition in collaboration with our dance company in residence, Penny & Jules Dance. In terms of other performing arts there’s the chance to perform in a wide range of orchestras, choirs and drama productions.

Trips

Over recent years girls from Years 10-13 have visited Ethiopia, Romania and Malawi running summer schools for local children. These trips have been run in conjunction with the charity CRED, and have been truly life changing experiences for students.

Art

Closer to home there are visits to a vast range of museums, galleries and the Sussex coast. Our proximity to London also enables us to take in the exhibitions and performances there. Art is a hugely popular subject and student artwork is typically exhibited around the school to inspire and celebrate their creativity.

New Sixth Form Space - 2022

The top floor of the iconic Temple building has been redesigned as a light-filled hub for the school’s Sixth Form. Sixth Form students were able to pitch their ideas to the architects and influence the design. There are  three zones: a workspace with writable walls in booths, a collaborative space to chill out and a kitchen space.

Pictured left is one of the concept drawings – part of the school’s £10 million Designing the Future project, with the new Sixth Form space opening in September 2022.
