The lower sixth Foundation Studies program consists of a series of lessons designed to equip students with the key skills necessary for sixth form success and to help prepare them for life after school.

Each student is assigned a Lower Sixth Foundation Studies group (A - H) according to their tutor group:

                             A = S1 , S2 , S3                                        E = S13 , S14 , S15

                             B = S4 , S5 , S6                                        F = S16 , S17 , S19

                             C = S7 , S8 , S9                                        G = S18 , S20

                             D = S10 , S11 , S12                                  H = S21 , S22

Each FS group proceeds around the key skills carousel in a different order according to a chart given to students at the start of the year.
