Sixth Form Courses (S5 and S6) at St George’s

Lower 6 (S5) 16 – 17 years

Most girls take five subjects further, usually at Higher level. Girls select from a wide and flexible choice of subjects which cater for individual needs. The Scottish Higher is a university matriculation qualification and remains the gold standard for entry to Scottish Universities. Increasingly, English universities are making unconditional offers to Scottish applicants with five (very good) Highers.

Upper 6 (S6) 17 – 18 years

A wide range of courses is available. Many girls take at least three Advanced Highers courses, or a combination of qualifications. Girls usually apply for university entry in the autumn term of Upper 6.
