Grades 12 & 13 at SAHS mirror the school’s Mission. The focus is on cultivating productive citizens through academic excellence, leadership development, and community service and involvement. Admission to Grade 12 is therefore based on stringent criteria. Approximately 175 girls are accepted each year and each class consists of 10-30 students depending on the demand for the subject.
It is recommended that students study four subjects, including one compulsory subject, per year. All students must participate in our signature Leadership Development Programme which features seminars and visiting lecturers.
Our Community Service Programme is augmented at this level with a requirement of at least ten hours of community service at each level.
During the Grade 12 year, all students are given a trial period in which they carry out specific school duties. At the end of this period the elections for the leadership body for Grade 13 are held.
All students are accepted to Grade 12 on a one-year contract. Promotion to Grade 13 is not automatic and is dependent on students maintaining the required standards.
Space is limited to a maximum of ten transfer students each year, the result of many SAHS students qualifying for acceptance. Preference is therefore given to students from schools without a sixth form who meet the criteria.
Sixth form applications are available from the school office once the CXC CSEC results are announced.
