16 to 19 study programmes
|ïÂ® The school provides effective careers advice and guidance and a suitable range of study pathways with clear routes to further study or employment. Learners in the sixth form are ambitious; most progress to further education, training or employment in their chosen field and many progress to good universities.|
|ïÂ® Leaders know the strengths and weaknesses of the sixth form well. They are ambitious and have detailed plans and strategies in place to achieve them.|
|ïÂ® Subject leaders regularly check learners’ progress towards demanding targets. Sixth formers take a pride in their school and they appreciate the commitment and support teachers give them.|
|ïÂ® Teachers have higher expectations and use their good subject knowledge to design learning activities which engage and challenge learners.|
|ïÂ® Sixth formers make progress in line with national averages. Attainment in the range of A-level subjects, and the small number of vocational subjects, has been sound in the past and is improving.|
|ïÂ® Sixth formers provide good role models for younger pupils. For example, inspectors witnessed Year 13 House Captains confidently presenting details of a charity fundraising event to younger boys during an assembly. Sixth formers are mature, tolerant and respectful of difference. They have a very good understanding of how to look after themselves and be safe.|
ïÂ® ïÂ®Tutor time is used well to reflect on social and moral issues and to help learners prepare for adult life. In addition, sixth formers told inspectors that they particularly value the advice and support that their tutors offer them to help them apply for the next steps in their education or employment. Many learners take up leadership roles, such as mentoring younger pupils. This contributes well to their development as responsible citizens.
