Tracking Your Progress

The Sixth Form uses target-setting data from national organisations to set targets based on GCSE performance. In addition, staff and students work together to set realistic objectives and to devise strategies for success.

Learning Cycle reports provide formal reflection and target setting points that encourage all our Sixth Formers to continue to challenge themselves and seek support where necessary from, in the first instance, their Form Tutor. Learning Managers provide further support where required. The Pastoral Officer acts as a contact point for parents, while the Sixth Form Administrator is available to provide technical advice (particularly regarding university applications) and organise appointments.

The Learning Managers are the link between Form Tutors, students, parents and subject staff and develop a holistic view of the student´s capacity to develop.

External examinations take place in the summer of Year 13.

Parents´ Evenings attended by students and their parents provide an opportunity to discuss an individual´s performance with all their teachers.
