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.
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.
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.
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.
The range of extra-curricular activities, foreign trips and music tours on offer is impressive. My girls look forward to going to school every day, which is something I could never say for myself.– Sixth form parent
Brighton Girls instils an innate sense of confidence - that as young women they are capable of achieving anything they set their minds to– Sixth form parent
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.
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.
