Who's Who in the Sixth Form
Welcome to the Sixth Form Team of Staff...
Supporting your success
Guidance advice and support...In student satisfaction surveys this is rated as excellent...
We understand that your academic success is a team effort , with you, your parents and the school working together and communicating clearly. Our intention is that you always have someone to call upon whenever you need guidance, advice or support and key staff are on hand to help:
Mrs F Smith, Head of Sixth Form
The Billericay School 6th form staff is dedicated to the achievement of academic excellence, the fulfilment of students’ potential and the expansion of their horizons. We aim to create young men and women who are willing to embrace the challenges and demands of a diverse and changing society. Our ‘open door’ policy providing guidance and support reflects our daily commitment to the 6th form community in achieving these goals.
Ms Pollard, Head of Year 13
Mrs Barnes, Head of Year 12
Mrs L Pike, Sixth Form Administrator/ Student Support
My role is to maintain the smooth and happy running of the sixth form. I am a good first point of contact if you want some help and information.
I support students (and indeed their parents!) with the challenge of transition from Year 11 into sixth form through to their career path decisions into University or the workplace.
One of my many favourite things about working within the sixth form team is the feeling when a young person realises that their dream for their future is within their reach.
A personal tutor
In addition to these staff each student is allocated a personal tutor (where possible, a member of staff who teaches or knows you). They are a close point of contact through regular meetings - you can discuss any problems relating to your work. They are also the first line of support for UCAS or employment applications.
An additional level of support is offered to students with weekly meetings with a dedicated tutor to plan work, discuss time management, and work on specific course assignments in order to achieve the best possible grades.
