Care & Support

Mentor Team
One of the unique qualities of our Sixth Form provision is the dedicated mentoring programme.  Each student meets in a small group with their mentor on a weekly basis to monitor their academic progress and address any other issues they may have.

Weekly Briefings
Both Year 12 and 13 have a weekly briefing where the whole year group comes together with the tutors and Head of Sixth Form.  During this time presentations, guest speakers and exciting opportunities are shared.  Topics include current affairs, global knowledge, practical information and all students have the opportunity to gain valuable skills.

PSHE Programme
Each week students take part in a dedicated programme to challenge their understanding of current issues and to experience a range of external speakers to extend their knowledge.  This includes the following topics:

  • Safe nights out
  • Politics
  • Financial planning
  • Careers guidance
  • Emergency services presentations
  • Community Fundraising Challenge

The programme is designed to give students those vital skills that enable them to become independent members of society.
