Welcome from the Sixth Form Pastoral Team
Mrs C Burton Head of Sixth Form Miss L Curtis Deputy Head of Sixth Form
Welcome to The Tupton Hall Sixth Form Post-16 prospectus. We are a supportive and very successful Sixth Form centre, taking students from a wide variety of different schools. We care about students’ academic and personal development and are committed to providing a friendly and supportive environment where each student may achieve their potential.
Sixth Form students at Tupton Hall are housed in a dedicated wing of the school specially designed for Post-16 study, with modern teaching and social spaces and technology to support teaching and learning. We have great facilities for private study; including Sixth Form computer suites, our own common room and silent study provision.
A Pastoral Support Team of tutors and leaders is available for our students to access as we are fully aware that many will need additional support alongside their studies.
We also recognise that our Sixth Formers have a lot to contribute to the wider school community; the pastoral system is organised into Houses and our Sixth Formers act as mentors and buddies to younger students, supporting their academic and personal development. This is a rewarding experience which provides them with something extra for their CV and university applications; but the lower school students also gain confidence and often we find their academic outcomes improve.
We have strong links with universities. Partnerships have been developed with The University of Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University and the universities of Birmingham and Nottingham. These links are exceptionally valuable to our students and as a result they receive mentoring, interview guidance, subject specific workshops and unconditional offers for undergraduate study and financial support in the form of bursaries. Our close working relationships with universities result in students securing places on competitive courses such as law and medicine, while a large number of the cohort benefit from summer schools with the Russell Group of universities.
Ofsted have rated us ‘Good’, highlighting the bespoke support we provide for all students. Inspectors commented that: ‘Students are extremely positive about the support and guidance they receive. Leaders have ensured that students receive additional guidance from external experts. This is effective in supporting their progression on to their next stages of education, employment or training.’
They also recognised that “Sixth form teachers have good subject knowledge. They have a good understanding of students’ needs and provide appropriate and challenging work that supports students.”
We hope that you find all this information useful in helping you make the important decisions regarding your studies Post 16. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further support or information.
