All Sixth Form students participate in general studies to enrich their learning experience, and to develop new academic interests free from the pressure of examinations.
We are an inclusive Sixth Form, with a focus on supporting the individual, whatever her strengths and areas for development. In all cases, student progress is monitored carefully and communicated clearly and regularly to parents.
Our Learning Support department also offers guidance to subject teachers and tutors enabling them to better meet a range of individual needs. During study periods, students can access additional learning support.
Homework reinforces and consolidates the day’s learning. It also plays an important role in students being intellectually challenged, by providing an opportunity to delve deeper into a topic and to develop the skills of unsupported study and independent learning.
When homework is set, teachers ensure it is engaging and enjoyable. A Level students are encouraged to develop their own learning outside of school hours as they are with in the school day. Our teachers are available before and after school, or at morning break and lunchtime, to answer queries and support the girls in their work.
