Support & Financial Assistance
Sixth Form students receive continual support and guidance throughout the year. Our sixth form tutor team is hugely experienced and will meet with their students daily. Working alongside our Head of Sixth form, we also have a dedicated Student Support Officer based in the heart of our facility.
Students are assessed frequently, and their attainment monitored against targets set 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, whether that be study at university, via apprenticeships or, for a few, access directly to the world of work. Students are guided through UCAS applications and the preparation of a successful and effective personal statement.
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, including access to bespoke support for Oxbridge applications.
Financial Assistance: 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.
