Sixth form life

Students have strong relationships with sixth form leaders, including form tutors, a dedicated Head of Year and sixth form administrator. Through this, they are supported to make the most of every day. Students have their own dedicated study area and common room and we take pride in supporting students to become driven and disciplined in their use of independent study time. Our student leadership team takes on substantive leadership roles within the school at large, championing student voice through participating and taking a lead with our school council, supporting clubs and extracurricular activities, and liaising regularly with school leaders to ensure the very best experience for all. 

Pastoral Care

 The heart of our philosophy is that every individual counts; each sixth former is known, cared for, and offered regular guidance and advice.

Our  Sixth Form is supported by a member of the leadership team, an Achievement leader and our Sixth Form Support Officer, creating a strong team of staff leading the development and running of our sixth form.

Students have a designated tutor who works with them on a daily basis, supporting them through all stages of their post-16 journey and onto their next steps.

The sixth form team works holistically, supporting all students to achieve their full potential in their post-16 studies; monitoring their academic progress, removing any barriers to learning and ensuring the wellbeing of each individual. We are committed to providing the best outcomes for all of our students.  

Please look at the bottom of this page to view our 6th form dress code.  

Joining our 6th form will also allow students to take on Leadership opportunities; including Year 11 mentoring, Paired reading with younger students, School council, Sports coaching, leading enrichment clubs and many more.  

Please note:  A single BTEC is the equivalent to one A'Level.  All students have to initially choose 5 subjects in order of preference.  We expect students to generally be studying three subjects.
