Sixth Form Team
The Sixth Form Team
Mrs C. Danher, Director of Sixth Form has overall responsibility for the discipline, attendance, liaison with parents and carers and general practical matters regarding Sixth Form students. She is supported by Mrs A. Raftery.
“Leaders are committed to achieving the best educational outcomes for their students.”- Ofsted 2016
Supporting the Director of Sixth Form are a dedicated team of experienced Form Tutors. All Sixth Form students will be attached to a registration group and as a minimum are expected to attend registration in the morning, 845am – 9.05am. The Form Tutors will spend this time getting to know their students and working with them all to ensure they are as fully prepared as they can be for their studies and their future. This is also a time for communication key pieces of information including examination information, job opportunities and trips and visits options.
Punctuality at registration and lessons will be carefully monitored. High academic standards depend upon punctual and regular attendance at lessons, and persistent lateness reduces available lesson time. Please refer to the Attendance Policy for further details.
The aim of the pastoral system is to ensure that all students are encouraged and supported both inside and outside their own school or college and that they are happy and secure within that environment.
“Students speak highly of the pastoral support they enjoy. They know there is always useful guidance on any personal issues they may have, and they feel very confident to talk to teachers about any problems.” – Ofsted 2016
There is also an experienced Careers Advisor based within the Sixth Form Centre, Mrs A. Koermer. She is happy to meet with all students regularly to discuss plans for the future and assist in providing advice on applying for university, apprenticeships or any form of employment.
