Key Stage 5

Almost all of our students continue their post-16 studies here at Holcombe, joined each year by around 100 students from other Kent and Medway schools who choose to undertake their Sixth Form studies here as well. This results in an energetic and vibrant Sixth Form with a tangible sense of community and belonging. And because we are such a large Sixth Form, we can offer a very wide range of subjects for students to choose from, delivered on the Holcombe site.

Although your academic success is at the heart of everything we do, we believe that education is about a lot more than that. Therefore we provide lots of opportunities for you to participate in a range of clubs and activities including exchanges and trips to Europe, America and Asia, musical and dramatic productions, sporting teams and events, Young Dragons, the UK Maths Challenge, the Bank of England competition, the Duke of Edinburgh award, the opportunity to participate in debates and in mock trials, and much, much more. And we will also be keen for you to develop your leadership skills through becoming a school council representative, a prefect, a student mentor or by becoming a member of the School Captain’s team.
