We believe in the importance of stimulating students minds, broadening horizons and enlightening students to their own potential. Our partnerships play an important part of our student experience, offering students the chance to play an active role in the community, and benefitting from the expertise and opportunities offered throughout these collaborative partnerships.

We take pride in offering students a range of enrichment prospects and learning experiences, taking their learning beyond the classroom, and enabling them to network with a range of partners to provide opportunities for our student’s benefit.

Our extensive network of organisations incorporates businesses, charities, and institutions on a local and national scale, enhancing and enriching the Bow Sixth Form experience.



Working with our local primary schools offers us the opportunity to share our resources and expertise, for the benefit of primary pupils and staff. These mutually beneficial partnerships also allow Bow Sixth Form students to assume positions of responsibility as they work in partnership with our primaries, assisting Sports Days, supporting through assisted reading and through a buddy scheme to guide pupils throughout the transition process.
