Welcome to Hind House (age 16 - 18)
Hind House, home to the RMS Sixth Form, is a special place providing an inclusive and vibrant community where each girl is challenged to fulfil her unique potential. The Sixth Form is comprehensive and all RMS girls have right of transfer from the Senior School.
Hind House provides a welcoming hub for Sixth Form life and many girls choose to join at this stage each year. Whether you have come up from the Senior School and maybe even Cadogan House before that, or you join us new into Year 12 from another school, your contribution to RMS life and the School community will be valued and important.
Academically, the RMS Sixth Form is attractive because it offers great choice. 32 subjects are on offer for study in the Sixth Form, including traditional academic disciplines alongside creative ones such as Textiles and Photography, as well as Applied courses in Business and Health and Social Care. Small group teaching, personal tutoring and excellent results pave the way for future success. 99% of our girls go on to university, many of them Russell Group; and over 90% gain a place at their institution of first choice. Our results represent exceptionally high value added scores, indicating outstanding progress made by pupils and our Sixth Form was rated “excellent” at our most recent inspection.
We will help you to be prepared for your transition to higher education - we will give you excellent careers guidance and Mrs Freeman, our Head of Sixth Form (pictured above), and her tutor team will carefully manage the UCAS application process to ensure that your next move is a successful one. Mock interviews are arranged, and there are plenty of opportunities for relevant work experience, and we know that our girls go on to succeed highly in the world of work, gaining places on the most competitive graduate schemes.
Above all, we want our Sixth Formers to fulfil their dreams, succeed and be happy. We believe that this is most likely within a traditional Sixth Form with high expectations regarding appearance, attendance and punctuality, combined with a more informal, seminar - style approach to teaching that prepares students so effectively for university. We know that RMS girls go on to be successful undergraduates because they have been so well trained at school; they continue to add exceptional value to themselves!
