As a Sixth Form Mr Wadsworth and Miss Dukeson meet all the curriculum leaders on a monthly basis to discuss the progress of students.

If students are not progressing as expected we discuss the best way forward for each individual student. This might involve the student being placed on referral to a member of staff in the department who will set specific targets for the student to help them to move forward.

As well as targets being set for the student a support package will be put in place for the student to help them to achieve. The support sessions may involve extra tutorials outside of normal lesson time, lunchtime sessions as well as providing the student with relevant materials that will guide them outside of the lesson.


Y12 students register on a Monday, Tuesday and Friday and Y13 students register on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday each week.
