“The proactive work of the pastoral team is very effective in ensuring
vulnerable students are well provided for.”
Ofsted 2011
Sixth Form students should take a pride in
their school and themselves, and should
therefore look smart and presentable at all
times. As a general guide you should
dress as though you were going to work
in a formal environment.
You may need to bring in an appropriate
change of clothes for certain subjects, e.g.
P.E & Wednesday pm sports, Drama, Art.

If you attend
school dressed
in what is
judged to be an
inappropriate
manner, you will
be referred to a
member of the
Sixth Form Team
and may be sent
home to change,
or placed in
isolation, thus
wasting valuable
lesson time.
The nature of homework changes significantly
in the Sixth Form and students are expected to
be more independent in allocating time to
study. There will not be a published timetable.
However a good general guideline is that you
should allocate FIVE HOURS per week outside
lessons to each subject.



Students will be given a target grade for
their subject.
In November, teaching staff will input a
current grade based on progress so far.
If students are significantly below their
target grade, some of their study periods
will be allocated to D4 (silent study room)
and their progress carefully monitored.
