Tadcaster Grammar School has a large and thriving Sixth Form where many students choose to enrol to extend their studies post-16. Students in the Sixth Form have their own designated tutors during tutor time, to provide individual mentoring for students as well as deliver careers advice, Personal Social Health Education (PSHE) and Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural Education (SMSC) activities. They are also encouraged to support the vertical tutor programme by acting as mentors and fulfilling leadership roles. The Sixth Form have a designated suite of rooms in the Sixth Form building for private study, with both classrooms and IT suites to further advance their studies. As well as specialised tutors, Sixth Form students are supported by the Director of Sixth Form and Key Stage 5 Student Development Leader.
Naturally, we are very proud of the achievements of our Sixth Form students, most of whom gain employment, apprenticeships and places at Universities throughout the country.
Sixth Form courses offer both continuity and variety for our students. We provide:
- A familiar, purposeful environment
- Staff who are fully aware of each student’s needs and capabilities
- A warm, friendly but structured ethos
- Continuous individual care and guidance
- Relatively small class sizes, guaranteeing greater personal tuition and monitoring
