Personal Development Programme

You’re treated as an individual and not a number. Everything is geared towards getting you ready for life and the staff really help prepare you for your exams.

In accordance with our sixth form ethos of ensuring that every student leaves us as well-rounded individuals with a sense of moral and academic purpose, all students complete a pastoral programme.

Each student is assigned a Personal Progress Tutor (PPT) who meet formally with students every week for one hour to deliver a programme relating to the Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE). These seminars incorporate not only pastoral support and awareness, but also give students the opportunity to become reflective and mature young adults. PPTs follow a programme of study, which interlinks with key dates in the academy calendar as well as form tutor sessions. These sessions prove to be valuable to our students, as they are designed to be purposeful and engaging whilst equipping students with the knowledge, skills and awareness needed to successfully progress.
