INTRODUCTION/WELCOME TO THE SIXTH FORM
Thank you for looking at the Thomas Bennett Sixth Form website section. We believe that Thomas Bennett Community College is a unique place and has something special to offer its students; it is a truly comprehensive college offering quality education from vocational courses to 'A' levels. Our aim at post 16 is to provide an inclusive and excellent education which develops the skills to allow all our students to be as confident and as equipped as possible for the future. This includes university/further education, apprenticeships and employment.
I am confident that whatever your needs and interests, the Sixth Form teaching and tutor team will be able to provide you with a rich, relevant and challenging study experience that will prepare you for your very important career and education decisions at 18 plus. The Sixth Form has a very active student leadership team. There are a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and we actively encourage our students to develop their Sixth Form social life and make a contribution to the life of the rest of the college in a variety of ways.
The Sixth Form occupies a distinct area within the College. The Sixth Form common room provides a comfortable and spacious environment in which students can relax and socialise. The study area has state of the art ICT facilities which help students to keep on top of the demands of Post 16 coursework and homework. Students are supported in their study time through a dedicated Study Supervisor and can also get additional help from their Academic supervisor who will help support their Individualised Learning Plan [ILP].
Survey data over the last three years has shown that at least 95% of students in T.B.C.C. Sixth Form enjoy their experience. The vast majority of students also said that ‘the teaching is challenging and demanding’ but that their teachers are ‘accessible and helpful if they have difficulties’ What stood out most for students were the excellent relationships between staff and students and also amongst students themselves.
If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me or any member of the Sixth Form Team. You will find in the Sixth Form you will have more independence, more responsibility and more opportunity. We look forward to you taking that challenge on!
