Starting Sixth Form Life at TBSHS
You will discover that we are a diverse, mixed Sixth Form with an intake of approximately 200 students into Year 12, with half of that number joining us from over 20 different schools. We will help you settle as quickly as possible and make the most of all the exciting opportunities we provide. Our comprehensive study skills programme will facilitate a smooth transition from Year 11 and you will be part of a tutor group with students who study similar subjects. Your tutor will also be connected to one of your subject areas, which means that you can always get help when necessary. Your tutor will formally meet with you on a one-to-one basis to check on your progress and provide guidance. Additionally, tutor groups contain a mix of Year 12s and 13s so you can benefit from their Sixth Form experience.
All students are encouraged to get involved in Sixth Form life and you will be given the chance to get a flavour of all that is on offer at our Freshers’ Fair in our Induction. You will be assigned to a House; this will help you to foster links with younger students and develop an ethos of healthy and collaborative competition.
