Students in our Sixth Form feel well supported as they progress through two years of study.  The academic challenge is significant and our students will face a range of additional challenges as they mature into young adults ready for the real world.

Through all of these challenges there is a supportive pastoral system that proactively ensures all students are well looked after.


Head of Sixth Form is Assistant Headteacher Mr Gordon Pentland

Inclusion Team

A skilled team of non-teaching staff provide counselling and often just a person to listen.  Well thought of by the students, this support is on offer to all.

External Agencies

Through our regular pastoral meetings, all of these staff work together as a team to provide the best support possible for each student.  We have established and strong links to a range of external agencies that support students when we cannot.
