Welcome to Dame Allan's Sixth Form

Dame Allan's Schools was one of the first independent schools in the region to create a mixed sixth form over 20 years ago. Since then it has developed and grown and now has around 200 students.

"Pupils' social development is excellent.  They grow into confident, articulate, caring young men and women who go out of their way to help others.  Their strong social skills contribute to excellent relationships.   Pupils value leadership highly and aspire to it.  They give of their time to lead others." ISI Report 2011.

The less formal environment enables pupils to learn effectively in a natural development from the main schools, providing an excellent preparation for higher education and adult life.

This environment of care and understanding combined with a rigorous academic approach helps us achieve our goal of building the inner confidence of each pupil and fulfilling their individual potential.
