Support and Financial Assistance
Sixth Form students receive continual support and guidance throughout the year and will meet with their tutor daily. Students are assessed frequently and their attainment monitored against personalised targets created at the beginning of the year. We expect parents to be active participants in this process and keep them regularly updated on achievement and progress.
Our Sixth Form team work hard to prepare all students for successful life beyond the Sixth Form, and the reality of study at university. A team of experienced staff will guide students through their UCAS application and the preparation of a successful and effective personal statement. Their open door policy and pastoral care of every one of their students ensures that all students receive a caring and personal approach to their studies.
Students will receive a wealth of advice and guidance including a programme of visitors and speakers from a range of institutions enabling students to make informed decisions about their future. The Sixth Form also provides specialist support for those students who wish to apply for the most competitive courses such as medicine and dentistry, or have ambitions for Russell Group universities.
Financial Asistance: 16-19 Bursary Fund
The school has a fund given to us by the Government to help students in vulnerable groups continue their education. This fund is for the provision of discretionary bursaries targeted towards those young people who face the greatest financial barriers to continue in education, such as the costs of transport, curriculum trips, meals, books and equipment.
