Every student in our Sixth Form is provided with an experienced personal tutor. The tutors help to guide the students with use of their study time and careers advice. Tutor sessions are timetabled each morning where we cover a PSHCE curriculum.
In tutor time our students cover study skills, growth mindset, critical thinking, relationships, financial capability and preparing for exams (including dealing with exam stress).
Students at Wilsthorpe Sixth Form are invited to take part in mentoring lower school students. This is done both as a pastoral support in tutor time and academic support in lesson time. Allowing them to take on such roles has meant our students can develop fantastic personal statements as they look to leave us at the end of their study.
Sixth Form students have access to two purpose-built rooms - a larger room is available for group study and a smaller room with IT equipment for silent study. The students also have access to Sixth Form specific reading materials in their study rooms. Each student who attends Wilsthorpe Sixth Form is also provided with a netbook to aid their independent study.
At Wilsthorpe Sixth Form we are lucky to have fantastic links with two of our local universities (University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University). Both of these universities provide our students with support and guidance when looking at their next steps upon successful completion of their Sixth Form qualifications.
