Student Support & Well-being

Tutor Groups

Students are divided into Tutor Groups which meet twice 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 (February 2016):

If you go on to full-time education after your GCSEs, and you’re under 19 years old at the beginning of the academic year, we may be able to provide you with transport assistance to get to college or sixth form.

There are some conditions:

  • You have to live more than three miles from your place of study
  • You must live at an address that pays council tax to Herefordshire Council
  • You must be studying a full-time course (more that 15 hours a week) in Herefordshire, unless you’re studying outside the county because your course is unavailable in Herefordshire
  • You will have to make a contribution towards the cost of transport

 

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:
