“Ilford County High School is an outstanding school: an extremely strong work ethic permeates all activity in the school.”
The Sixth Form at Ilford County High School (ICHS) contains approximately 300 boys, and as such is the largest year group of any within the school. Around 90 of these are boys who have joined the school in Year 12. The remainder have come up through the school's lower years - out of a Year 11 cohort of 120, around 110-112 usually stay into the Sixth Form. Entry to the Sixth Form is based on academic criteria.
We are proud of the diversity of the Sixth Form body, and of the range of schools that boys come to us from. For example, in 2010-12 our external candidates came from the following schools:
Our intention is that boys who attend the Sixth Form should have a positive experience both educationally and socially. Whilst priority is given to the curriculum, and to A Level success, we believe that it is difficult to achieve this unless students feel happy and secure, and if they cannot leaven their workload with other interests that provide relief from the rigours of academic life. We are therefore keen to promote participation in extra-curricular activities and to provide support and advice for any student who requires it.
