Higher Education

Most of our Sixth Formers go on to university. We offer students expert advice and guidance when they make their choice of course and university. We organise visits to H.E. Fairs and university open days and we have excellent links with universities. We run many sessions to support students when making their applications. We also provide advice, guidance and assistance for students who have decided not to apply for University. Pupils will have access to Unifrog, the number one online platform for Post 18 destinations.

EPQ

We also now offer the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which is an exciting qualification, worth an AS level, that provides a unique opportunity for students to conduct an independent, scholarly, in-depth exploration of a topic of specific interest to the individual. 

Pastoral Support / SIxth Form Mentors

You will have a sixth form mentor who will provide regular support and advice every morning and afternoon. Student progress is carefully monitored and appropriate action will be taken to deal with any underachievement by mentors, sixth form team and learning mentors

Perspectives

The perspectives programme is used in Year 12 to support PSHE development, acquisition of study skills and support with Post 18 planning including UCAS.

Independent Study Periods

All our Year 12 students are timetabled for  independent study periods during the school day. Students do not have ‘free periods’. It is our belief that students should at all times be engaging in meaningful learning and using their time during the school day to improve their scholarship. We support them by providing them with the resources and space to become the best academics they can be.
