We consider our Sixth Form as an essential and vibrant part of our school community. In addition to their academic studies, our students are expected to participate in, and contribute to a broad range of enrichment activities. We strive to create a stimulating environment with a learning culture that offers students intellectual excitement and prepares them for life in the fast changing world of which they will become adult members.
Enrichment and Life Skills include academic mentoring, PSCHE, sporting activities and others, for example, working with the local community, mentoring younger students, work experience, emergency first aid and personal finance.
Sixth Formers are placed in tutor groups and will be closely monitored and supported by their Form Tutors. All students will be regularly assessed and monitored during their Sixth Form and appropriate diligence and progress is required at all times and in all subjects. The School aims to have effective and mutually supportive partnerships with parents and there will be two scheduled occasions when parents and students will have an opportunity to meet their child's Form Tutor and subject teachers.
The Return Of The Sixth Form Centre! We are delighted to be moving into C Block; a building originally constructed specifically for the Sixth Form. As well as a large independent study room equipped with 30 computers, refurbishment work has also created four new dedicated Sixth Form teaching rooms.
