Sixth Form Houses Our Sixth Form boarding Houses are purposely designed to meet the specific needs of the Sixth Form and, with their excellent facilities, help to prepare you for university life. There is a special Sixth Form feel which is in part due to the increased responsibility that you are given. You have the freedom to arrange your own time and you will enjoy the increased privileges that are afforded to you. The supportive House staff help create an environment that is suitable for both work and play and they are here to help ensure that you fulfil your potential. You each have your own spacious en-suite study bedroom and this provides you with the perfect environment for independent study. We also encourage you to socialise with your peers and the common rooms allow you to relax and enjoy your down time. Using the well-equipped kitchens to make supper with friends is a popular activity and allows you to develop your cookery skills in readiness for life beyond St Mary’s. In addition the Upper Sixth Form also have their own dining room with their own tailor-made menu which allows them to have a more informal dining experience at breakfast, break and lunch times.
