Supporting You to Success

Here at the college we aim to support you emotionally, socially and personally so that you can achieve your academic potential.

In order to do this, there are various support systems in place.

Consistently, over 80% of our Year 13 students go on to study at university with almost all of the remaining students leaving with a clear destination in mind. The Sixth Form Team support students and guide them onto the appropriate progression route.

Students from our college go on to follow a number of pathways including: apprenticeships, employment, gap years and university

Head of Sixth Form and Heads of Year

Students receive support from the Head of Sixth Form and two Heads of Year.

The Head of Sixth Form and Heads of Year will monitor students in terms of attendance, academic performance and progress but they are also there to support students pastorally so that they can achieve success.

Career Progression & Student Support

We have a team of qualified and experienced careers specialists to help you plan your career pathway, signpost you to opportunities and support any welfare needs you may have.

You will have one to one meetings so that we can personalise our support to meet your needs and aspirations. This personal service enables us to develop a career and welfare package which is individually tailored to you.

You will have the opportunity to take part in group activities, work experience, voluntary work, industry, university visits and seminars to support your career planning and preparations.

The college uses a specialist careers programme ‘Grofar, Student Passport’. On this platform you can take ownership of your career planning and keep up to date on the careers events which have been arranged. The Student Passport enables you to develop and review your career planning and research, record your work and voluntary experience and develop your personal statement. You can review your skills using the profiling tools, create career action plans and set career goals.
