The Sixth Form education offered to students at FHS has an enviable reputation for academic success (where 70% of A Level grades were A*- A in 2022) and girls are regularly offered places at Oxbridge and other top UK and US universities. The friendly atmosphere and excellent higher education programme will be further enhanced by the new modern learning environment at this unique 16+ education hub.
Linhope House, which has undergone a £5 million investment, combines an elegant, Georgian exterior with traditional features such as the Old Prefects’ Library. The cutting-edge interior includes a Think Lab and collaborative learning and study spaces providing the perfect transition between school and university.
Student voice is key at FHS and current students had significant input into the design of the interior, where natural materials, cool colours and abundant natural light have resulted in a calm and serene Scandinavian-style decor. The Common Room features a bio-farm plant wall, known to increase wellbeing, productivity, and attention spans, creating the ideal environment for Sixth Form learning.
By increasing the dedicated Sixth Form space by 300%, with an extra 663sqm at Linhope House, FHS has enabled the School building at Ivor Place to grow by adding a new science laboratory, English, IT and Geography facilities, thereby benefiting the younger year groups too. The close proximity of Linhope House, just two minutes away, ensures that the Sixth Form will gain a level of independence but retain their important roles as pastoral ambassadors and leadership role models for the lower years. FHS has community at its heart.
