Mount House is a beautiful Georgian grade II listed building in Hadley Wood, Hertfordshire, on the borders of North London.

We offer all our students a pathway which suits their individual needs, particularly in the Sixth Form. We run two core pathways at Sixth Form: A Level and IBCP.

A key pillar of a Mount House education is the individual approach we can offer students. The IB Career Related Programme (IBCP) allows us to build on this ethos with a pathway that gives some students a learning experience and qualification that is more relevant to their needs. The IBCP gives Mount House Sixth Formers an option that differs to A Levels in the approach to aspects of teaching and learning, whilst offering an excellent springboard for next steps be that Russell Group university entry, apprenticeships or the world of work. The Career Related Programme has four clear aims for students:

  • To prepare for work in a knowledge society
  • To prepare for the future
  • To provide a locally relevant education
  • To bridge the 'academic vs vocational' divide

Subject options within the IBCP include Global Politics, Computer Science, Environmental Science, Business Management, English Literature & Language, Food and Nutrition, Music Performance, and Criminology.

Our Sixth Formers enjoy the Personal and Professional Studies course, and every one of them undertake Service Learning where they volunteer in the community gaining hugely valuable skills and wellbeing as a result. Alongside the small class sizes and our personal tutor system, each student has the chance to make an impact on the school and community and pursue their own interests in a supportive and friendly environment.
