In the Sixth Form, perhaps more than any other time in your life, high quality school-based pastoral support is vital. Students in the Sixth Form have a dedicated Tutor who will know you inside out. Over the course of the Sixth Form, you will get to know your Tutor, and they you, very closely.
On entering the Sixth Form, you will be placed in a Tutor Group led by a specially chosen Sixth Form Tutor who will guide you through the next two years. Tutor Groups are encouraged to see themselves as a family unit with all members taking responsibility to foster a 'family atmosphere' accompanied by their Sixth Form Tutor.
Each Sixth Form Tutor is the primary point of contact for pastoral matters and is responsible for creating a supportive environment in which you, as a key member of your tutor group feels valued, secure and able to devote your best efforts to your learning.
Apart from daily morning briefings, your tutor group will meet for an extended period of time each week; this time will allow personal and group reflection on the past seven days, as well as providing the opportunity for important guidance on university applications, the delivery of work experience programmes and enrichment opportunities.
