St John's College

Sixth Form broadens and deepens the academic perspectives of students who are allowed to focus on three subjects of their choice in preparation for the A Level exams, which are written in November. 

For students wishing to study overseas, Cambridge A Levels are a passport to any university, as they are internationally recognised. For students wishing to study in South Africa, the Sixth Form year brings university approach and maturity to their work, which is of enormous benefit to their tertiary education.

By providing an atmosphere that is less restrictive than high school, students are encouraged to cope confidently with greater personal responsibility and freedom. Our Sixth Form is recognised as the top academic Sixth Form in the country and welcomes international students from all over the world. Once Sixth Form studies are completed, students wishing to apply to overseas universities are offered expert advice and assistance with their applications.

We offer AS and A Level examinations in:

Art English Language** Mathematics
Biology English Literature** Physics
Chemistry French Psychology**
Computer Science Further Mathematics** Thinking Skills*
Economics** Geography
English Language & Literature* History

*    AS Level only (Lower VI only)

South African matriculants enter the Upper Sixth Form and complete a one-year accelerated course to A Level. Post Grade 10 candidates or those with IGCSE qualifications (or the equivalent) are admitted to Lower Sixth and complete their A Level course in two years.

Students wishing to apply to overseas universities are offered expert advice and assistance with applications. It is possible to qualify for South African Matric Exemption on the basis of Cambridge qualifications.
