Student Support in Sixth Form
We offer a comprehensive and structured level of support for all our students’ academic and pastoral needs throughout their study of A-level at Ulverston Victoria High Sixth Form.
There is a comprehensive programme of academic intervention in the Sixth Form, something we believe to be vital in ensuring our students achieve their full potential. Students are assessed by our Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCO) as they arrive in the Sixth Form in order to identify students who may need support or have additional need in terms of exam access. Subject teachers play a vital role in offering challenge in the classroom and have clear expectations of work outside of their subject lessons. Students are supported during their form periods as well as their study periods and have access to subject workshops and focused academic intervention sessions.
Whilst transition to A-Level and beyond is an exciting time we recognise it can also be sometimes a challenging time for young people. It can influence many different social, emotional and health needs that may impact on their ability to flourish academically. At Ulverston we have a well-established infrastructure, strategies and expertise in place for pastoral support for our young people. This includes mentoring, health and well-being tutorials, advice and guidance to help young people feel supported and able to take ownership and responsibility towards managing their emotional health and well-being.
