Study at Gildredge House Sixth Form
We have recently been judged Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted (June 2015) and we are passionately committed to delivering and maintaining a first-rate educational experience for everyone who comes through our doors.
The school has accommodation and facilities ideally equipped for Sixth Form teaching and, most importantly, our recent ambitious recruitment programme has brought us yet more teachers who are qualified to teach to A Level to strengthen our already excellent team.
Our Sixth Form students have the benefit of a stand-alone wing, which we have renamed Temple Grove after the Preparatory School which occupied the site 100 years ago. The 1870s building with its striking Victorian frontage and many original features is perfect for Sixth Form accommodation, offering:
- spacious seminar-style teaching rooms for a typical group size of 14 students (and none larger than 20)
- tutorial bases for House groups
- student common rooms on two levels
- kitchen facilities
- extensive library and computer facilities dedicated to Sixth Form use in the Devonshire wing
Our Sixth Form students also take advantage of the subject-specific facilities throughout the rest of the site.
Our Sixth Form facilities are enhanced by a fast and accessible computer network, WiFi throughout the building and various hardware including laptops, tablets and digital screens.
Students can also take advantage of high quality sports facilities within easy walking distance, such as the astro-turf at The Saffrons, swimming at the University of Brighton and Tennis in the Park.
Altogether, we believe we have a great deal to offer to the post-16 education context in Eastbourne.
