6th Form @ Stanborough
We hope and intend that the Post 16 provision will be greatly rewarding, and a time for further academic and personal development and increasing maturity. The willingness to assume leadership roles (for example as a Senior Prefect) and to be an aspirational role model to younger students is essential.
The more autonomous nature of Post 16 study ensures students are envied and admired by the rest of the school; students exhibit a mature, responsible and wholly positive approach that provides a hugely positive influence to the whole school community.
What do we expect in return? Well, undoubtedly hard work, punctuality, smart appearance and impeccable attendance. We expect an integral contribution to the life of the school in sports, drama, music, societies, debating, charity fund raising and many other areas. We expect Post -16 Prefects to assist in maintaining good order and discipline and to act as lower school Tutor Group Prefects. We also welcome help in lessons with younger students and have a successful Year 7 Prefect team.
Qualifications are extremely important in contemporary society, and primarily, Post 16 students are returning to Stanborough to obtain further qualifications to enhance their Post-18 choices. All AS, A-Level and Level 2 courses require consistent hard work both at home and at school so that 15 hours each week, in addition to timetabled lessons, is a minimum requirement for all Post 16 students . Those who fall behind in the early stages may find that catching up later on is too much for them, particularly if they have part-time jobs. Establishing a consistent pattern of work is, therefore, very important from the start of the Post 16 studies.
Reviews, reports and Parent Consultation Evenings continue as before, but a much greater emphasis is placed upon an individual’s willingness to work and learn without constant reminders. Students need to be self-disciplined if they are to maximise their potential. A formal personal tutoring programme also supports Post 16 students.
