Considering Cambridge International AS and A Levels? Or an accelerated post-matric A Level Qualification?

St John's Sixth Form has produced exceptional AS and A Level results since 1972.

Situated on the magnificent St John's College campus in Houghton, Sixth Form is a co-ed environment that offers a different and exciting way to learn.

We have students from South Africa and all over the world who come to us to study AS and A Levels through the Cambridge Assessment International Education Board, and they leave with an internationally accredited qualification which opens doors worldwide.

Sixth Form fosters independent thought and study styles and prepares our students for the challenge of university. Students are encouraged to develop time-management and organisational skills in an environment where every individual is known and valued for the strengths they have.

Our approach is based on respect for the individual and their contribution and, in this multinational and multicultural setting, our students develop their academic and personal potential in a challenging but sociable context.

Sixth Form students go on to universities in South Africa and abroad with confidence and an open mind, equipped to deal with a changing world. They return often and form part of a network of friendships and connections, which extends over five continents.
