As we are a school rather than a college, students are still assigned to form groups with a tutor who they see every day. This means that they have a small group of peers and a tutor who they see very regularly, and who can offer support and advice.
We offer a ‘life skills’ course for all Sixth Form students. This covers applications to UCAS, careers, how to apply for apprenticeships, how to manage your finances, how to cook for yourself, wellbeing and teamwork amongst other topics.
Students are all given a dedicated mentor at Key Stage 5 who takes them through the careers process and UCAS applications where this is relevant. Our highly individualised approach means that students are well supported when deciding on their future.
All students at Wye are provided with a ‘Unifrog’ account. This is an excellent application for searching relevant careers and making relevant applications. It means that students can readily seek our advice and be provided with suggestions and guidance as to how to move forward with their plans in a very timely manner.
Our dedicated, supervised Sixth Form study and ICT rooms are well used, with some students remaining to do their work after school. These transform into common rooms at break and lunch times.
We offer onsite secure parking to Sixth Formers.
