We are passionate about providing exceptional pastoral support for every girl and boy in our care throughout their Sixth Form journey.
Each student is placed in a Sixth Form tutor group of around ten students and they receive a great deal of specialised, individual support from tutors and the wider pastoral team, each of whom are specified within each school setting and is there to provide help and guidance in solving issues and concerns.
It is important to us that every student feels valued and knows that any concern will be handled with the utmost sensitivity and professionalism. The School encourages Sixth Form students to become aware of the importance of valuable life skills such as dependability, punctuality and self-reliance.
A form tutor may occasionally intervene on a student’s behalf to help solve problems encountered within the school, and provide a route for parents to communicate with the School. In addition to termly effort and grade assessments, formal reporting to parents occurs twice yearly.
There is a full programme of PHSE in the Sixth Form, which helps them to become effective independent learners, hone their time management skills and develop strategies to cope with stress.
We have a rigorous advice programme to provide knowledge and direction on all aspects of application to higher education and progression beyond into the world of work. Our highly-engaged alumni community also supports current pupils with help, advice and opportunities.
Visiting professionals, including alumni, deliver talks on a range of topics such as financial planning, health and wellbeing, safe driving and life at university. Sixth formers also have the opportunity to apply to be peer supporters of younger pupils within the school.
While the Sixth Form runs in a manner that allows students to focus on their academic study whilst also enjoying freedoms appropriate for 16-18-year-old learners, students are encouraged to embrace their role within the wider school community as leaders, role models and ambassadors.
