The Benedict Building

Our brand new Sixth Form centre, the Benedict Building, opened in January 2023. It is a physical articulation of our values and vision for Sixth Form, providing you with the space and opportunity to grow your academic and extracurricular interest in readiness for the future. Echoing the design of the best higher education campuses, the building will give you a taste of the freedoms and independence of university life.

Alongside the nine spacious classrooms that allow for seminar-style discussions during lessons, you will find a range of individual and group study spaces to suit your preferred way of working – look out for the cosy study pods!

The Higher Education Library, located just across the quad from the Careers Library, provides you with the space and resources to make well-informed and ambitious university and life choices.

The possibilities are endless in our flexible lecture and performance space, Benedict Hall. You can attend lectures and debates, direct or perform plays or even run open-mic events – only your imagination will hold you back.

In between study, you can relax, recharge and catch up with friends in the large Common Room – tea and toast are aplenty and you can step outside to enjoy the peace of the Sixth Form garden.

Whether it is a much-needed, post netball-match refuel or a chat with a teacher about an essay, the Sixth Form café is the ideal spot to catch up over a hot chocolate.

"The spacious, bright, university-like workspaces make us feel so much more motivated and we enjoy looking forward to our study periods. The common room is the perfect social area to relax and wind down during break times. When leaving for lessons, we feel ready to be productive, especially when being fuelled by snacks from the café."
