Sixth Form Team
You will receive a huge range of support at the Academy to ensure you reach the grades of which you are capable. Staff who will support this process include:
- Ms Curran, Director of Sixth Form; and Mrs Mills, Head of Sixth Form
Ms Curran and Mrs Mills work closely together to support your learning and help you achieve your goals. They will know what your predicted grades are, what level you are working at, and what you need to do if you are behind or need extra support. They will also look after your wellbeing, providing advice and guidance for students who need additional support.
- Head of Careers, UCAS Applications and Work Experience, Mrs Kempt will provide advice, guidance and opportunities for students to attend university open days, apprenticeship fairs and work experience placements.
- Mentors – you will see your Mentor every day for a 25 minute session. We believe it is important to continue this routine from Key Stage 4 to ensure you have a daily opportunity to make contact for support and guidance.
- The Principal, Miss Lee support and advise the Sixth Form team as well as providing strategic leadership to ensure students achieve their goals.
All of these staff will work hard to support you in achieving the results you need for the university or career of your choice, but YOU will need to work hard too! You will be expected to take advantage of free periods by accessing the resources and support on offer and we will encourage you to communicate with your subject teachers regarding coursework or assignments so that you meet deadlines.
In addition to the support that students receive, we encourage regular communication between staff and parents. There are two Parents’ Evenings each year, including one in the Autumn term to discuss progress early and a further one post mock results so we are able to discuss the progress made.
