Ms Pollard, Acting Head of Sixth Form

 We aim to instil high aspirations in our students and support growth in self-confidence arising from personal achievement. One of my roles is to monitor your progress. Following each key assessment point in the year, your form tutor will help you pinpoint strengths and targets for improvement, allowing us to ensure the optimum academic outcome for all. I will also help with informed guidance on university choices, UCAS applications and personal statements, as well as supporting you in finding a relevant business placement, helping ensure every student is a success story beyond their time here at school.

 

  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.

Study tutoring

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.
