Academic Support

All students are supported to achieve their academic potential in our Sixth Form through regular meetings with their personal tutor and ongoing feedback from subject teachers.  The Head of Sixth Form, Alistair Dougall and Careers Adviser, Bethan Ferguson are both based in the Sixth Form Centre and provide easy access to further specialist advice.

Those who require it can also access additional academic learning support with specialist teaching staff.  The focus of this is on helping students to explore their individual learning styles and overcome any barriers to learning they may face.  Sixth Form students are encouraged to hone their independent study skills and lessons are based on using the most effective techniques with which to approach each curriculum subject.
