As a Sixth Form student you will be expected to meet certain standards of behaviour and academic achievement. Please regard school in the same way that you would regard part-time employment and treat school accordingly.

  • Attend all lessons, enrichment, PSHE and supervised study periods.
  • Be punctual to all lessons, enrichment, PSHE and study periods.
  • Complete all independent study tasks to the best of your ability and on time.

  • Wear the school uniform correctly at all times.
  • Respect all staff and other students.
  • Behave in a manner which sets a good example to main school.

Desirable Qualities

The development of good study habits will make the transition to life beyond King James´s more successful. You should strive to:

  • Develop good study habits – balance your time between school work, social activities and paid work
  • Make productive use of study periods

  • Involve parents/carers in your education – discuss issues which affect you with them
  • Take reports and letters home in good time
  • Communicate fully with all staff – your subject teachers, your Form Tutor, Pastoral Officer, your Learning Manager and the Director of Sixth Form
  • Make an active contribution to the wider life of the school by taking part in school service, charity events, etc.
