Joining a Sixth Form is an exciting and challenging time in a student’s life. Students who have the achieved the GCSE results to secure a place at Sixth Form Helsby have already achieved so much and can now begin thinking about what they would like to achieve next. This can be a lot for a young person to consider and it is essential that they are supported both pastorally and academically to plan these life decisions carefully.
Careful guidance is also offered in order to ensure students manage the changes to their timetables effectively. Balancing their studies with paid employment, working well in their study periods and socialising with new people can be daunting but also enthralling. Helping students to manage the differences between Year 11 and Sixth Form is an important part of our Transition Programme.
