Sixth Form consists of 2 mixed-ability tutor groups:
- 13MRU (M Russell, Humanities)
- 13ESE (E Sherriff, Science)
Once enrolled at Sixth Form, each student is assigned a Form Tutor, who is responsible for the pastoral well-being of each student in their care. Students see their Form Tutor each morning for a tutorial session which covers a holistic programme on Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural development. Students are also interviewed during their first term in the Sixth Form to assess how well they have settled in and made the transition from Key Stage 4 to Key Stage 5. Such interviews enable us as a team to best support students. In addition to this the Head of Sixth Form is available to discuss issues with parents and students.
In the Sixth Form, students are offered the support of the Sixth Form mentor with whom they can meet with to discuss issues relating to progress, attainment and well-being. The purpose of mentoring sessions is to ensure our students feel fully supported and guided during their time with us.
Beyond the mentoring provision students also have the opportunity to receive impartial and external careers advice offered by experienced members of the Futures organisation. Careers and progression meetings are a central feature, enabling students to consider their future study and career plan, and setting achievable goals to work towards success. Our students complete at least one week of work experience in Year 12 and in Year 13 students receive support and guidance throughout the university application process and with alternative pathways also.
