Support for learning and well-being
We pride ourselves on the support we provide for our Sixth Form students, based on the crucial partnership between students, parents and staff. The Sixth Form tutor groups include students from both Years 12 and 13 and are led by experienced members of staff who take a keen personal interest in mentoring their tutees. Students meet their tutors every day for registration and a programme of form activities which include progress monitoring and discussion of higher education and careers options.
We track students’ academic progress closely and provide focused intervention where appropriate. Students have access to an academic mentor for support with learning strategies and we employ a full-time school counsellor for those needing some specific emotional support.
