The Sixth Form years can be very challenging in managing the heavy workload, making important decisions about your future whilst coping with the ever increasing expectations of adulthood. At times, we can all feel under pressure and it is important to recognise when this is happening and seek help and support, whether that be in the short or longer term.
Any one of the Sixth Form team is on hand if you need someone to talk to and seek advice about work or personal issues. In addition, the school counsellor Jacki Jouannet is available and can be contacted through the Sixth Form Office or via e-mail on *protected email*.
There are many organisations that also offer help and support. The NHS in particular offer a great deal of support in this area. Click on the link below for further information.

It is important to remember that you are never alone and no problem is every considered by us to be too trivial. We are here to help.
Year 12 students are taken off normal school timetable in mid-June to undertake a work experience placement(s) to allow first hand experience of an intended career. The employer’s report forms a crucial part of the student’s school reference and the chosen placement may prove useful in reflecting the student’s commitment to a particular course. In recent years students have secured placements in work areas which range from television production to physiotherapy and from journalism to accountancy.
The Learning Manager for Year 12 students provides advice and guidance, through presentations, tutorial activities and one to one sessions, if needed, and students are expected to use the information, tools and resources from these sessions to identify and secure suitable work experience placements.
In summary work experience can help students:
Remember just as in the world of work, there are other students in the local area who are chasing the limited number of work experience placements. Therefore the emphasis is placed on the individual to explore options, make contact with the prospective employer, think outside the box and keep motivated.
Date for work experience are 11th to 22nd June 2018 inclusive.
Students must submit a work placement form for each placement secured, to be signed by the employer, parent/guardian and the students.
In April of each year, Year 12 students are invited to apply to become a member of either the prestigious Student Management Team or one of the committees/groups that promote and support school/sixth form activities.

It is really important to demonstrate to universities or employers that your interests go beyond your school curriculum – which could be through pursuing areas such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, sports or the arts for example.
Demonstrating your interest in a subject can come through exploring it beyond the confines of the course, through wider reading, independent research and undertaking additional online courses. This will give you much more to talk about at interview and in letters of application or personal statements.
