SIXTH FORM LIFE
Students often say that Sixth Form is where they spend some of the most enjoyable years of their school life and St Philip Howard Sixth Form offers a vibrant and happy place to study. As a member of the Sixth Form you are joining a long established and successful Sixth Form with an excellent reputation in the community. 98% of our students receive all five of their University offers.
Sixth Form life is not the same as Year 11 study. Students are treated more as adults and are expected to take responsibility for their own learning, as well as setting a good example to the younger students with regard to behaviour, appearance and general attitude to work. You are taught in smaller groups, you have more independent study time and are given Sixth Form privileges, such as use of your own Sixth Form Café. The Sixth Form Centre is a place of quiet study with plenty of space and computers for you to undertake independent work in your Directed Study periods. There are also three study rooms for quiet group work.
We are here to ensure that you receive the guidance and support you need to flourish both academically and personally. Students will be allocated a personal tutor with whom they will meet on a regular basis. The tutor is there to support you in your work, to oversee your progress, and to provide guidance on the choices you will make in the near future.
You will receive numerous enrichment, spiritual and leadership opportunities to help you develop personally so that you can become a well-rounded individual. This is vital in helping you secure your future – be that University, Apprenticeship or employment.
