The Wellbeing Centre is situated on the lower floor near the student entrance. It is the centre which provides pastoral support for all of our students that can be accessed throughout the school day. The Sixth Form staff take great pride in the support and care they put in place for all students. We treat each student as an individual and meet and respond to specific needs. This can include:

• Regular contact with the Sixth Form Leadership and Wellbeing team

• Guidance and support for Higher Education and Careers

• Regular progress reviews, with subsequent support put in place where needed

• Parent consultation meetings for Year 12 and Year 13 students

We operate an ‘open door’ policy and are always available for students or parents who wish to discuss any part of life as a sixth form student, and are committed to helping students to make the right decision for their future, based upon their aspirations.

All students who apply to join the Sixth Form will receive a guidance interview from the Sixth Form team. This will check that students have selected the correct courses for their future plans and ensure the courses are well matched to their academic needs.

Careers education and guidance is an integral part of the Sixth Form programme to ensure that students make informed and appropriate decisions about their future. Help and guidance in making applications to universities and colleges is comprehensive, and there are a number of additional support sessions.
