As in the lower school, our Sixth Form students continue to be encouraged to fulfil their potential and are offered support to overcome any challenges they may face. Students are allocated a form tutor who will look after them throughout their time in Sixth Form, offering support and guidance. Regular Chapel services delivered by pupils, staff and external speakers give students a time to reflect and offer insight into new areas.
We have an outstanding Learning Support Centre dedicated to ensuring students receive the support they require, gain confidence in their abilities and develop strategies to enable them to become and remain independent learners.
SCHOOL NURSES & COUNSELLORS
Our students’ physical and mental well-being are vital to their success at school. All students have access to two school nurses and two school counsellors who offer an independent and confidential service on-site. We also have a highly experienced physiotherapist in school offering physiotherapy treatment, rehabilitation, injury prevention strategies and pitch-side management. Our Athletic Development Programme helps keep pupils in top physical condition, too.
PSHE is timetabled each week to provide information and guidance, and promote thought about a range of topics which will help develop thoughtful, compassionate and healthy students with a strong moral compass and the social skills to succeed in the modern world.
The Year 12 PSHE programme is largely delivered by invited expert speakers and covers issues such as:
|Values||Organ and Blood Donations|
|Eating Disorders||Teenage Driving|
|Role of Magistrates||Revision Skills|
|Rape and Consent||University Finance|
|Sexual Health||Binge Drinking|
Careers advice and preparation for university admissions forms the major part of the summer term’s scheme of work.
