Sport & Wellbeing

Sixth Form students spend two hours a week at the Nuffield Health Centre where they can swim, use the gym or take a spin class.  In addition, they are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sports clubs that take place at lunch time and after school as well as representing the school in matches.

Our careers education and PSHE programmes continue into the Sixth Form and through these, students are guided and supported through the UCAS process. Oxbridge applicants are given individualised help and advice for preparing for the interview process and are put in touch with alumnae of these universities. 

The Sixth Form has a dedicated Wellbeing and Life Skills programme in which all students participate. We are committed to ensuring that students are prepared for the challenges of adult life. 

Areas covered include: 

  • Nutrition for health  

  • Mindfulness  

  • Drugs and alcohol education  

  • Sexual health and relationships 

  • Sexual safety and issues around consent at university and when travelling  

  • Personal finance  

  • Student budgeting  

  • Independent learning  

  • Organisation & time management 

  • Memorisation techniques 

We also have a dedicated counsellor, who provides support to pupils, parents and staff.  This may take the form of parent sessions, pupil groups or tutor sessions, one-to-ones or working with particular families where there is a need.  It provides support to ensure the mental wellbeing of all those involved in the St Gabriel’s community.

"I was completely overjoyed when I opened my results. My two years in Sixth Form have been the best two years of my life. I cannot thank the school enough for all the support, care and guidance they have given me."
