Each student is assigned to a personal tutor, who is their first point of contact for information, advice and guidance. In year 12 the students follow a personal development programme involving study skills, time management and revision planning.
The Sixth Form centre has strong links with all our local universities. We work with The University of Liverpool ‘Realising Opportunity’ programme, and a formal link with the University of Warwick, where students have the opportunity to go to lectures and seminars. Students are also given the opportunity to take part in a residential visit to the university.
Our HE Preparation Programme includes visiting speakers from local universities, visits to various universities and a comprehensive series of tutorials delivered by the Head of Sixth Form and external agencies.
We work with the Cambridge HE+ Network to prepare students who wish to apply for competitive courses.
