Most of our Upper Five students choose to remain with us at Sixth Form however, we also receive applications from students currently studying at other schools in Guernsey, the UK and further afield.
"The Ladies' College has given me countless opportunities and I have been encouraged to take part in all of them."
"Despite only moving from Blanchelande, I was apprehensive about joining The Ladies’ College Sixth Form; I was worried about not settling in or finding new friends. However, on only the first day these concerns had been completely cast aside. I was welcomed by every student and teacher at the school- everyone was willing to help me out and show me the way around. After a single month of being at The Ladies’ College I could barely remember what it felt like to be the new girl!
The Ladies’ College has given me countless opportunities and I have been encouraged to take part in all of them. In only my first year, I participated in the MOOT, the UK Maths Challenge and senior choir. Here at The Ladies’ College, no one is scared to engage in activities, which was a big surprise to me. Despite 2020 being an unusual year, I was continuously supported by my teachers during lockdown and had weekly Zoom calls with my tutor which allowed me to have some much-needed time to catch up and talk to my friends. This was vital for my wellbeing as being stuck inside with three brothers really does take its toll!
If I was to give one piece of advice to someone who was starting at The Ladies’ College it would be to embrace every opportunity that you are offered. Whilst this might sound cliché, it has enabled me to build strong friendships which I know will last a lifetime."
"I have consistently been pleasantly surprised by how the school encourages kindness and promotes strong female role-models which inspire me to try to be my best self in all ways and I wish I could’ve somehow joined sooner"
"I joined The Ladies' College very recently at the beginning of the new academic year, after moving to Guernsey from the UK around two months ago. I was very apprehensive of the move and scared I wasn’t going to fit in since I am more introverted, but after the first day, my worries ceased as I quickly realised everybody was very friendly and welcoming.
The school environment is one so ideal in terms of being supportive, friendly, and yet challenging that I formerly didn’t think it was possible outside of books and films. Every day, I am more impressed by the high-quality facilities and the multitude of amazing opportunities the school provides. For example, the ‘Peer-Mentoring’ scheme the school runs, where sixth formers mentor younger students in specific subjects or as a ‘Big-Sister’ role is something I think I would’ve really benefited from had it been available to me at my old school in the UK. I also think it is a great experience for the sixth formers since I have the opportunity to help Upper Five in German-speaking practice every week, which I find very rewarding. I have consistently been pleasantly surprised by how the school encourages kindness and promotes strong female role-models which inspire me to try to be my best self in all ways and I wish I could’ve somehow joined sooner."
