Students in our sixth form enjoy a wide range of activities and events throughout the year. It is busy place, with so many facets to it; The Big 6, The Bush Telegraph, The Senior Student Leadership and Service Award, Bursaries, Christmas in the Sixth Form, Parking at the Sixth Form, The Study Centre, UCAS and careers to name just a few. Please see our latest 16+ Student Magazine, which gives students and parents a great understanding of what student life is like at The Long Eaton Sixth Form.
The Sixth Form is led by an Achievement Leader and a team of tutors committed to a holistic approach to supporting individuals, which focuses on academic success, social development and a community ethos.
Tutors meet with students on a weekly basis to monitor academic and social progress and support the enrichment program within the Sixth Form. A very strong level of pastoral care and guidance ensures that students are well prepared for the challenges of further study, university application or employment.
This Sixth Form Centre is also the base for a dedicated administrative and pastoral service to provide support for all Sixth Form students. Sixth Form students have access to their own administrative team to help with attendance and all other general enquiries. They also have their own pastoral support officer. Our staff are there to provide support with all personal and academic related matters to ensure students feel happy, safe, and can work productively in their studies.
You can find out more about our team by visiting the 16+ Student Magazine.
