Meet the Sixth Form team
Head of Sixth Form
Mrs Helena Berkeley is the member of the Senior Management Team that Sixth Formers will have most contact with. Her role is to support, encourage and challenge pupils as well as inspire them to believe in themselves in order to be the best they can be and truly flourish throughout these two significant years. The Head of Sixth Form is invested in each pupil in the Sixth Form as well as working with those in the 5th Form (current and prospective pupils) to ensure that pupils make the most of these two years. The Head of Sixth Form’s office is within the heart of the school to ensure that she is approachable and available for pupils to depend on.
Sixth Form Tutors
Mr Cartwright is the Deputy Head of Sixth Form and will assist Mrs Berkeley in ensuring that all Sixth Formers are supported and challenged. Furthermore, every Sixth Former has an academic tutor who works closely with the relevant house parent and the Head of Sixth Form to ensure that pupils are being challenged, held accountable and supported through these two significant years. The role of the Sixth Form tutor, as opposed to tutors of the First to Fifth Forms, is to support pupils through their university or apprenticeship applications and help ensure that Sixth Formers are meeting their own personal goals and targets.
US Program Directors
Those pupils who are following the US Program with the aim of graduating with their High School Diploma will be supported throughout their Junior and Senior years. Whilst being an integral part of the Sixth Form, they will also be able to turn to the Administrative Director and Academic Director of the US Program for advice and assistance; these are Mrs Lara-Smith and Mrs Heywood-Lonsdale respectively.
