To progress to Year 13, students will need to achieve the required threshold in end of year assessments along with Head of Department approval in the relevant subject. Students continue with three A Level/Btec subjects. Mentor time and PSHEE are also part of the compulsory timetable.
Students in Year 13 also have enrichment and school life opportunities available to them.
The student voice is heard through mentor reps and the Head Boy and Head Girl at the 6th Form Council meetings.
The PSHEE sessions during Year 13 focus on plans for post 6th Form, whether this be University, Apprenticeships, Employment and Training, Further Education or a Gap Year. There is a comprehensive system in place to support students with their onward destination following Post 16. This includes student finance talks, external speakers and visits from local University Ambassadors.
A Life after 6th Form Talk for Parents and Students is held annually in February/March.
