Life in the Sixth Form
The Towers Sixth Form prides itself on offering a community environment progressive and independent of lower school. Students are guided to become well rounded individuals who act as ambassadors for the school and support the younger students in lower school. Towers Sixth Form ensures that all students reach their full potential and support each other during their journey with the help of the Sixth Form teaching team. The Sixth Form Leadership Team, comprising of Head Boy and Head Girl, along with their deputies, work closely with the Head teacher and Sixth Form staff to further improve facilities and maximise opportunities and resources for all students within the Sixth Form as well as helping to organise social events. In addition to such opportunities, the Sixth Form often organise and host fundraising events to give back to the local community.
Sixth Form students will be allocated a tutor group which plays a vital role in supporting pupils throughout their two years study programme. Students’ timetables allow for greater independent study where students are expected to spend this time revising lesson notes, completing further reading or exercises and preparing for forthcoming lessons and progressions tests.
Head Boy/Girl and Student Leadership Team
Each year a number of students are appointed to undertake the role of becoming a member of the Student Leadership Team. These students have a vital role in our Awards Evenings, Open Evenings and other whole school events. Two students are then selected to become Head Boy and Girl – with a team of Deputies and Assistants to support them.
Sixth Form students are viewed as important role models for the school community and as such students need to dress in smart ‘business like’ dress.
