This video is about more than the Sixth Form, it is about joining the EBS community; it gives a good idea of the school ethos across the years, how we treat our students, the opportunities available to you and how you can succeed. By joining the EBS Sixth Form, you will become a role model and an inspiration for the younger year groups. You will be given freedoms that are similar to college, but supported within a school environment.
The East Barnet School Sixth Form has been judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted and has the best progress in the whole of Barnet for exam results, scoring in the top 5% of sixth forms nationally.
EBS has a rich history from when it was opened in 1937, educating thousands of students that have walked through our doors. We have been in a new state-of-the-art building since 2010 and our success continues to grow year on year. We offer near-on 30 courses to students, so there is sure to be something for everyone. On top of that, we run an extensive extra-curricular programme with opportunities in leadership and strong pastoral support.
We encourage students to achieve the goals they are aiming for, whether that is going on to study at university, up-skilling through apprenticeships, entering the world of work, or even joining the armed forces. We will help you every step of the way.
Amongst all the different paths our students take, the majority do go on to university, and below is a snapshot of some of the universities our former students have attended.
Our exam success is not a stroke of luck; our results are consistently good, not just within the borough, but also nationally.
For the past three years, we have been in the top 10% of post-16 study nationally, and we are classed as ‘well above average’ for progress against other institutions offering A Levels across the country. We are proud of our results, and we hope in joining EBS, you become part of our success story.
If you would like to delve a little deeper into the curriculum offered at East Barnet School, you can have a look at our Year 12 and Year 13 Curriculum Booklets. Inside these booklets you will find a break-down of topics for each half term and the process used to assess. There is also a handy extended learning section at the end which illustrates specific resources that can be used for wider reading in each individual subject.
This is your opportunity to hear about the courses first-hand. As we are unable to host visitors in the school at the moment, hopefully the videos below will answer all of your questions.
Our newly refurbished Sixth Form Café is a great place to meet with friends for lunch or break. We have a varied menu available including dairy-free options for most of our products. We often have special deals and limited edition drinks for students and staff to enjoy. The Sixth Form Café is competitively priced, whilst being great quality!
The Sixth Form Study Area is a great place for students to get away from the hustle and bustle going on around the school. It is a dedicated area only for use by Sixth Form, with enough space to work either at one of the desks or at one of the computers. Students like to spend their study periods working under supervision to keep them focused.
At the end of the two years, and after working extremely hard, we like the students to be able to celebrate one final time with all of their year group friends. The Prom is held off-site and students get to dress up, have a lovely meal, and then party the night away. Students and staff get on very well at East Barnet School, and this is a great way for everyone to commemorate their time at East Barnet School.
