  • Academic Mentoring

    To support our students individually during their time in the Sixth Form we use a system of academic mentoring similar to that seen at many of our best Universities. Each student is paired with a Sixth Form Advisor who is, where possible, a specialist in a relevant subject area. Sixth Form Advisors meet with each individual student regularly on a one to one basis. Sixth Form Advisors track each student’s academic progress carefully and discuss this with students in detail, offering support and advice. They also regularly discuss students’ future aspirations with them and offer guidance on opportunities available within and outside College that will support students to achieve their future aspirations. Sixth Form Advisors will write highly personalised and meaningful references to support future applications for all the students they work with.
