Sixth Form

Pastoral, PSHE and Post 18

Students are treated and respected as young adults in CFS Sixth Form. We encourage them to become resilient independent learners whilst recognising that young people need to be supported in terms of their academic progress and their pastoral well-being. It is our aim that you not only fulfil your potential and achieve your goals, but that you leave CFS Sixth Form with confidence, pride and optimism for the future.

CFS Sixth Form students meet everyday with their tutor who monitor their overall progress and help if any difficulties arise. This tutor student relationship provides an essential support base and each student has the opportunity for one to one meetings with their tutor at least once a term. A PSHE programme provides guidance on study skills, relationships, well-being, life skills, communication skills, and careers. The CFS sixth form is an incredibly friendly and welcoming environment and we are confident that you will be noticed, both when things are going really well and also when you may need a little more support.

Progress is monitored by subject teachers and the Head of Sixth Form to ensure that sixth formers fulfil their potential in all aspects of school life. Parents Evenings, progress reports and full reports inform parents that a students’ work, attendance and attitude to learning are on track for success.

It is our vision that every one of our students will leave CFS equipped and qualified to take up exciting opportunities in careers and Higher Education. They are advised and guided with bespoke UCAS preparation and careers advice. Applicants for medicine have enjoyed a collaboration with a programme at Reed’s School this year and are offered mock interviews. We run a specialist competitive courses programme for all our prospective medics, veterinary science, dentistry and Oxbridge candidates. All students have a careers interview and we welcome representatives from universities to talk about the applications process and student finance.
