Sixth Form Life
Our purpose built Sixth Form Centre creates a fantastic learning environment with first rate facilities. Our students appreciate a designated Sixth Form library, Careers Centre and Common Room which develops a community spirit throughout Davenant Sixth Form.
The Sixth Form Common Room was fully refurbished during 2017 and now boasts its own coffee shop, complete with morning pastries and snacks throughout the day!
All students in the Sixth Form belong to a tutor group with a tutor whom they will see at least twice a day. This tutor gets to know the individuals in their form and acts as a mentor. There are regular integration activities for both Year 12 and Year 13 students to ensure that they can learn from each other. This promotes the sense of community in our Sixth Form and ensures that students support each other at all times. The Head of Sixth Form and her team are on hand to also provide advice, informed guidance and pastoral support.
As well as studying for A Levels, time is also allocated for independent study, support for higher education and careers and enrichment activities. We aim to provide students with a rounded education to enable them to make their mark in the world. We closely monitor student progress.
Attainment and Attitude for Learning grades are made available to parents/carers and students through termly progress checks. Parents/carers are kept informed throughout the years of study and students have one full school report per year plus a Parents' Evening to discuss, not only the subjects being studied, but also the aspirations and needs of the students.
