The pastoral care required by a Sixth Form student is different to that needed by younger pupils.
Beyond support and guidance, it’s about building a sense of independence, encouraging pupils to take responsibility for their actions.
In addition to the House structure, pupils have a personal Tutor. Each looks after small groups of around six pupils, providing guidance and direction as the pupils navigate their studies, manage their time and maximise achievements.
All Sixth Formers are part of a House. In the Upper Sixth, all pupils move into Godwin Hall, our new purpose-built Boarding House where all study bedrooms are en suite.
Monday to Friday the school teaching day runs from 08.20 – 17.30 interspersed with meals, sport, clubs and academic clinics.
Our day students follow the same structure as our boarders and are encouraged to spend as much time as possible at school. They may come in for breakfast and stay for supper and evening school at no extra cost and can, if they wish, stay overnight for a nominal charge. Many day students eventually opt to become boarders as they move up the school.
Weekends follow a more leisurely pace of sports fixtures and activities followed by social events and trips which are open to all students, both day and boarding.
