Pastoral Support

At Thornleigh Sixth Form we believe that pastoral support is a major part of your ability to succeed.

Thornleigh Sixth Form has a team who oversee the following:

  • Attendance and punctuality
  • UCAS applications and support
  • Work experience and careers guidance
  • Academic progress, coaching and interventions
  • Student welfare 
  • Enrichment programme
  • Communications with parents and stakeholders

We believe that the key professional who can have the greatest impact in the educational journey of students is the group tutor who has a key responsibility for ensuring that students:

  • Understand the context of the college environment and the expectations for learning
  • Are encouraged to maintain a high attendance and punctuality record
  • Are equipped for the learning day and have plans for their non-contact time
  • Are kept up-to-date about key priority areas
  • Experience the delivery of a planned tutor time programme
  • Are made aware of extracurricular opportunities and enrichment activities offered by the Sixth Form
  • Are coached to reflect on phases of learning and strategies to further improve
  • Are supported in the development of a CV that professionally advertises their key skills and achievements
  • Are given the appropriate support to complete a UCAS application and personal statement with incremental feedback and notes to improve
  • Know that their voice is heard and that a key member of staff cares for their welfare
  • Are aware that there are relevant support systems in college to support their growth as young adults
