Having completed Key Stage 4 , the vast majority of Harvey pupils stay on at the School to study A Levels and equivalent post-16 courses. The School also welcomes pupils from other schools apply to join the Sixth Form.

The Sixth Form boasts a vibrant and diverse environment. It offers Sixth Form students excellent teaching across a broad range of post-16 subjects and the opportunity to play a leading role in the wider life of the school. With high standards and expectations our Sixth Form students deliver excellent academic outcomes en route to learning beyond The Harvey.

The reason for the change from a selective to a comprehensive system was controversial, but not deeply divisive, at the time: middle-class parents in the Sixties and Seventies began to resent a test that could consign their children, at the tender age of 11, to schools which they regarded as second-class. Tony Blair and David Blunkett have committed the present government to the principle of "no selection by test or interview".

Even before the current activity began in the remaining selective areas, there was no evidence that parents' views had changed. Given the chance to return to selection in the Eighties by the Thatcher government, parents in no less leafy a suburb than Solihull gave the idea a resounding thumbs down. Politically speaking, John Major's offer of a grammar school in every town went down like a lead balloon.

Only 161 grammar schools remain. But the Labour Government has left it to parents' groups to initiate change in those areas that still use selection. And even without party political backing, the battle that is raging over selection - not just for grammar school entry, but also for entry to comprehensive schools that took advantage of the last government's option of up to 50 per cent selection - looks as though it will be a fierce one.
