The Sixth Form Tutor Team 

The role of the sixth form tutor is a key factor in the success of our students. The tutor’s primary role is to support their tutor group to achieve their full potential and the achievement of their target grades through close individual tracking and monitoring of their progress related to their curriculum pathway, their attendance and overall pastoral welfare. The tutor is the key contact for each student, their parents/carers and the tutee's teachers.  

Tutors act as a role model to their tutor group and lead them in developing a positive work ethos and ensuring that the sixth form experience is a fun and enriching one for them. Tutors guide students to observe the sixth form policies and procedures.

Being a sixth form tutor is a truly rewarding experience. Tutors and their tutees develop professional relationships of the highest quality. Our tutors love supporting their students to navigate their way through the challenges and triumphs of their time in sixth form and guiding them on their way to exciting and fulfilling progression routes.
