Sixth Form Tutors
All students in the Sixth Form have a dedicated tutor, with whom they will meet each morning during registration. We have combined tutor groups across Years 12, 13 and 14 which we believe encourages unities across year groups and is massively beneficial to students who share experience, subject information and lend support to each other. Tutors are often the first port of call for students and will take an active role in supporting students throughout their time in the Sixth Form.
Our Sixth Form tutors for 2017/2018 are:
Each year we have a head boy and a head girl appointed from within Year 13. Any student can nominate themselves for the position of head boy or head girl and will be invited to attend an interview. Following this phase, finalists will be determined and students will vote for their final choice.
The head boy and head girl are supported by a senior team. Each member of the senior team is responsible for a committee:
Teaching and learning
To offer a student's perspective on the classroom experience.
Links (main school liaison)
Responsible for building strong working links with the whole school, attached to specific houses.
Charity and fundraising
Responsible for charitable events and to raise money for external charities.
Responsible for creating better relations between those within the Sixth Form.
Sport and leisure
Establish and run a calendar or sports and leisure events to cater for the whole of the Sixth Form.
To promote, organise and execute global environmental issues within the Sixth Form.
To promote, organise and run social events both within and outside of school, catering for the whole Sixth Form.
It is expected that all teams will work collaboratively in order to achieve our common goals, not only within committees but also across committees. Not only will individual committees need to meet regularly, but cross-committee meetings will need to take place in order for us to effectively plan activities and events that cut across committee areas. We need people with a ‘can do’ attitude, plenty of team work and a collective will to change things for the better - not just in the Sixth Form but across the whole school and outside in the wider community.
