Sixth Form Tutor Programme

At its heart, the purpose of our Sixth Form is to give students the necessary skills to enable them to make choices in their life.  Reaching their potential in academic studies will give them greater flexibility in their choice of Higher Education or employment.  However, as experience has taught us, academic success alone is not enough.  Students must also continue to develop their personal skills and show they have widened their experiences and responsibilities.  We encourage active involvement in School life as we believe that leadership and teamwork skills need to be nurtured and developed.

Academic Qualifications

Our high pass rate at AS and A2 is never accidental.  With graduate teachers committed to their subjects and excellent staffing ratios, students are closely guided and supported to gain the study skills and qualifications necessary for Higher Education.


 

Pastoral Provision

A team of specialist tutors guides students through the entire UCAS process and professional careers advice from the Connexions Service is available to every student.  The extensive tutor programme includes study skills, self-assessments and target setting.  A number of external speakers are invited to widen students’ understanding of personal, financial, social and political issues.

Developing Personal Skills

Developing self-confidence and personal skills is a two-way process.  We provide the opportunities and support and students volunteer and get involved.  Students produce the School Magazine and run Young Enterprise Companies.  Many are involved with the Duke of Edinburgh Award and the Volunteering in the Community Scheme.  The Lower Sixth run a scheme to support Year 7 readers.  By the end of the first term, the students clearly establish themselves and produce their own Sixth Form Pantomime.

Sixth Formers are trusted to be an essential part of the management of the School.  They organise House activities and take responsibility for duties, assemblies, competitions and sports.  These responsibilities are recognised by the award of House and School Colours, prizes and appointment as Prefects.  There are also three Senior Prefects who have specific responsibilities plus two Deputy Heads of School and a Head of School who have significant  organisational, administrative and ambassadorial roles.
 

Facilities

The new Sixth Form Centre has a specially designed suite of rooms.  The Red Room is for silent study while the Amber Room is where students can quietly discuss academic problems.  The Green Room is the large common room with relaxed seating and a well equipped kitchen area.  There is full wireless network and broadband internet access throughout the Sixth Form Centre.  Students may bring their own laptops to school at their own risk.

Sixth Form Guide

A detailed "survival guide" is available to help prospective and current Sixth Form students adjust to the very different expectations of our post-16 education and to make the most of all the opportunities available in our Sixth Form.  A separate Sixth Form prospectus is available.
