We are aware that transition from KS4 to KS5 can be stressful. Some schools offer taster weeks after the GCSE examinations have finished in July. In order to provide students with the best possible start, all students undergo a period of induction during the first week of lessons.
Every Collegiate student is entitled to pastoral support with an assigned tutor, who has responsibility for overseeing their students’ progress, agreeing academic targets, and working on applications to university, college or the workplace.
We also have our own Sixth Form Learning Mentor, Cheryl, who will be here to support you every step of the way.
Part of every student’s timetable will be shown as Private Study. Students are expected to take responsibility for managing their time and workload. It is expected that students should spend at least three hours per subject per week studying outside of lessons.
Within the Collegiate there is an extensive range of enrichment activities offered to students. This may include additional AS subjects, Extended Project or further recreational and academic options
Target setting & monitoring
Each Collegiate student is set a series of personalised target grades based on their previous academic performance. Progress against these targets is monitored on a regular basis. This ensures that students remain focused and well motivated, and retain a sense of realism about their academic performance.
If you choose to study courses at different institutions find out about travel. It is your responsibility to organise transport at the beginning and end of each day, but transport may be provided if you need to travel during the day.
