Student Services

There are a number of people that are available to ensure that you are successful and get the most out of your sixth form studies.

Sixth Form Administrator

From the moment you walk through the door you arrive in our reception area where a Sixth Form Administrator is based and can assist you with most issues concerning your attendance, timetable and planned absences. If they cannot assist then they will signpost you to somebody who can.

Personal tutor

The personal tutor is the first point of contact for you and your parents as they oversee the academic, pastoral and personal development of all the students within the Tutor Group. In addition, you meet with your tutor on a one to one or small group basis every term to create a focused and personalised action plan.

Support and Guidance advisor

There are times when people need more targeted support, advice and guidance and to overcome pastoral issues and for that we have a support and guidance advisor. Their role is to act as one of a team of staff who are responsible for the overall welfare and progress of all students in the Sixth Form. Primarily the Advisor will act as a link between the school, families and outside agencies, thereby enabling students to overcome individual barriers to learning. The Support and Guidance Advisor is proactive in identifying problems and implementing solutions thus enabling all students to succeed.

Higher Education and Careers Manager

A high percentage of our students progress to Higher Education. We recognise that researching and applying to University can be a daunting prospect and we support you in this process. We have a dedicated Higher Education and Careers Manager who co-ordinates the application process as part of our tutorial programme. They also advise and guide on employment and training opportunities, apprenticeships and further education courses.

Director of Sixth Form

The Director of Sixth Form is an Assistant Headteacher and has the role of leading the student services team and strategically developing the sixth from to ensure that it is successful and delivering a modern curriculum to all students.
