Student Support & Well-being

Tutor Groups

From September 2017, students are required to attend morning registration at the start of each day at 08.45am and make use of the study facilities inbetween lesson times.  Students are divided into Tutor Groups which meet once a week during afternoon registration and follow a set programme of study skills and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) topics.

Mentoring

One of the outstanding features of our Sixth Form is its pastoral care which is delivered by a highly experienced team of Mentors and the Sixth Form Leadership Team. The Mentors are the first point of contact and support for students and are always on hand to guide and advise. Mentors hold regular meetings with each student to set aspirational targets, offer advice and ensure students are developing effective study habits.

Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural (‘SMSC’) Programme

This programme is delivered by the Sixth Form Tutor team and outside speakers. It covers topics such as personal well-being, cultural diversity, good citizenship, British values, mental health, drugs and alcohol awareness, sexual health, healthy eating and personal finance. We consider it a vital part of the education of our young people and crucial preparation for developing them into positive, confident and proactive members of society.

Safeguarding, Child Protection and Special Needs

There is a designated member of staff in the Sixth Form who works closely with the school’s SENCO and Safeguarding Officer to ensure that student’s needs are met.

”Support and guidance is always available and welcoming”. “Older students are friendly and help guide you into work and social sides of the sixth form”.  

“Excellent. I have received a lot of one-to-one support”.

Do I have to pay for transport at Sixth Form?

The following extract was taken from Herefordshire Council’s website (July 2017):

We are able to provide transport assistance to some students attending college or sixth form in Herefordshire. You will have to make a contribution towards the cost of transport, but can apply for this support if:

  • You go on to full-time education after you leave school in year eleven
  • You’re under 19 years old at the beginning of the academic year
  • You live more than three miles from your place of study
  • You live at an address that pays Council Tax to Herefordshire Council
  • You are studying a full-time course (more than 15 hours a week) in Herefordshire, unless you’re studying outside the county because your course is unavailable in Herefordshire

You can apply online and can find information on bus routes on our bus services page. Students attending their local school sixth form will be allocated a space on existing school transport. On the majority of routes, a bus or rail travel permit will allow you to travel at any time during the day before 6pm Monday to Friday, term-time only.

You can apply online even before you have been accepted into college and will be refunded the payment before term commences, if you are not successful. Please note you must allow up to 28 days for the provision of a travel pass and we are unable to refund travel expenses incurred while travelling without a pass.

If you live outside of Herefordshire, you will need to contact your local Council to check their Post-16 transport policy. 

Please visit the Council’s website for the most up-to-date arrangements:
