The Head of Sixth Form leads a team of four Sixth Form tutors. The Sixth Form has a vertical tutorial structure. Each tutor group consists of up to eight Year 12 and eight Year 13 students. This means your tutor gets to know you really well in the course of the Sixth Form and Year 12 can benefit from the experience of their older peers.
Your academic progress and personal wellbeing are supervised closely by your tutor in regular one-to-one tutorials. These tutorials follow a coaching model, empowering you to take responsibility for your own progress and to develop strategies to meet your long-term goals.
In Year 13, the Sixth Form tutor also acts as your UCAS referee, offering high quality expert advice on your university choices and UCAS personal statement. Tutors keep in close contact with subject teachers and parents, ensuring accuracy of knowledge about their students. A rigorous tracking system is used to monitor academic progress using national data and individual aspirational targets.
We have an open door policy in the Sixth Form and students or parents can request a meeting with one of the Sixth Form team at any time.
