Sixth Form: Teaching and Learning

You will be joining the Sixth Form in order to maximise your academic potential and we are passionate about helping to ensure this.  Your teachers will all be experts in their respective fields, sharing their knowledge with you through innovative and inspiring lessons.  You will be encouraged to discover things for yourself and ask questions to deepen your learning.

Subject teachers will stretch and challenge you and you are expected to work hard in return.  Our teaching staff will go that extra mile to support you outside of your lessons, meeting with you in study periods, at lunchtimes and after school to reinforce your learning.

We believe that Sixth Form life should broaden your horizons so you will have access to academic enrichment with events such as our Model United Nations programme, language exchanges, subject-related trips and student-run clubs like our Medical and Engineering Societies.  We also invite internationally recognised speakers to share their experiences with you.  In the last two years we have welcomed Alastair Campbell, Jon Snow, George Galloway, Henry Olonga, BBC Newsreader Huw Edwards, Natalie Bennett Leader of the Green Party and former TBSHS Deputy Head Boy Greg James, now of Radio 1 fame.
