Form Systems & Teams

Senior School (6th Form)
Head of Senior School: Mrs L McCluggage

Entry to the Sixth Form  is dependent on obtaining good grades in 6 or more subjects at GCSE. From 27 A level subjects offered, most pupils will choose 3, and a small number will choose 4. Pupils are encouraged to maintain a wide range of interests and can complement their A level studies in a number of ways: they may choose to take an additional subject at AS level, such as Mathematical Applications, Drama or Human Biology; or at GCSE level, such as Psychology, Accounting, Photography or a language not previously studied; and they may also opt for the RSA CLAIT Stage 2 course or for a non-examination course such as Introduction to Law, Introduction to Journalism or Creative Writing. Music and Games or Community Service are also taken by all pupils. In addition, there is a life skills programme offering modules on money management, international issues, health issues, careers orientation and study skills, amongst others.

Each year, about 90% of Sixth Form leavers proceed to Higher Education, with some 20-25 going to Oxford and Cambridge.

Lower Sixth Form System

The list below shows the Form Teams for Lower Sixth for 2020 – 2021. From this you can find the name of your son’s/daughter’s Tutor. In this role, the Tutor will be responsible for registering your child’s attendance each morning. Registration takes place at 8.55 a.m. every Monday to Thursday and 8.45 a.m. on Friday, regardless of whether your son/daughter tells you they have a free period before break! We recognise the value of parental support and so would wish to work closely with you if a problem arises. Since the Tutor sees their students at registration every morning, they can be a first point of contact to offer support and advice if there is a difficulty. If you have a concern about any issue or wish to pass on information about your son/daughter, you can contact the Tutor or any other member of the Form Team. It is quite acceptable for you to leave a message for them at Reception if you are unable to make direct contact, and they will return your call.

Upper Sixth Form System

The list below shows the Form Teams for Upper Sixth for 2020 – 2021. From this you can find the name of your son’s/daughter’s Tutor. This year, while we remain under COVID restrictions, Upper Sixth students do not have to register every morning with their tutor. Instead they should come into school in good time for their first timetabled class when they will be registered by their subject teacher. Once it is safe to do so, registration with a tutor will recommence as normal. We recognise the value of parental support and so would wish to work closely with you if a problem arises. The tutor can be a first point of contact to offer support and advice if there is a difficulty. If you have a concern about any issue or wish to pass on information about your son/daughter, you can contact the Tutor or any other member of the Form Team. It is quite acceptable for you to leave a message for them at Reception if you are unable to make direct contact, and they will return your call.
