General Studies

The General Studies programme is a distinctive part of the RGS Sixth Form experience.

Each week, students from RGS and Guildford High School take part in General Studies which comprises three six-week courses during the first two terms of the year. During the Trinity Term there is a programme of lectures and other presentations. The fundamental rationale of General Studies is promoting learning for its own sake, but there is also value in broadening the experience of Sixth Form students beyond the examined curriculum in a co-educational context.

The General Studies programme is diverse, challenging and engaging and allows the students to participate in non-examined academic and skills-based enrichment. The courses change regularly, and are determined by the passions and expertise of staff.

"It’s a can-do culture – the school talks of ‘strengths’ and ‘development areas’ rather than ‘weaknesses’"
