Advice and guidance

Support from expert staffWe have a defined support system for all of our students, helping you to achieve your potential and aspire to reach further. We offer both pastoral and academic support, with guidance on financial, educational and career matters.

You will receive regular updates on your progress from your course teachers and personal tutors. Based on your GSCE performance, we set all our students realistic yet challenging targets to reach their potential in their chosen courses. Support is tailored to ensure you can achieve your potential and can aspire to stretch yourself academically. We will also provide extra support where required.

You will be allocated a personal tutor for the duration of your time with us. You will meet your tutor daily to discuss academic and personal progress, and they will support you through the process of university applications, apprenticeships or work placements.

You can also get support from dedicated learning mentors, who provide advice and guidance on issues, concerns and any questions you may have. This could involve wanting to change courses, obtaining information about higher education or training options, discussing problems outside of the sixth form setting or just simply needing to talk. There is also dedicated careers advice, information and guidance available in the new learning resource centre.
