Girls Sixth Form

Sixth Form Girls Leadership Opportunities

As our girls become more independent, they will gain responsibility- in their studies, in wider Sixth Form life and school life.

Our Sixth Formers are role models for the rest of the school. They lead by example, modelling our core community values of celebrating individuality, support, and respect to the rest of the school.

Girls in the Sixth Form play an active role in the running of the school. Our Head Girl leads the Prefect Team. Together, they work to ensure that the voices of all pupils at Rye are heard by liaising with teachers and Senior Leaders and by running School Councils attended by pupils of all ages. 

The Prefect Team is certainly one that younger children look up to throughout their years at Rye, and many of our younger pupils already aspire to be a prefect when their time comes.

We have a number of other leadership roles in Sixth Form which allow our girls to pick the right opportunity for them and their personal development including being House Captains, House Mothers, Games captains and sitting on the School Council to name a few – these opportunities are open to all. 

Leadership roles enable Rye Sixth Form Girls to develop skills and gain experience in key areas including organisation, addressing large groups, driving change, and harnessing their passions – these skills will enable our girls to go on to leadership roles in the future and allows them to become confident, resilient individuals. Girls Sixth Form
