Sixth Form Life

Students past and present will tell you that our sixth form offers a friendly environment in which to study and socialise. We welcome students from our own school as well as ten other local secondary schools. There is a vibrant mix of people and everyone gets on well.

Students are allocated to a tutor group where they spend 25 minutes each morning. This time is used to deliver higher education and careers guidance, PSHE, enrichment activities and for direct contact with your Sixth Form Tutor.

The Sixth Form team is made up of Mrs Burton (Head of Sixth Form) and Miss Curtis along with 20 tutors who are responsible for both the academic and personal development of our students.

Throughout their time with us, students also get lots of support to help decide what to do after sixth form. This support includes trips to universities, apprenticeship taster sessions, student mentoring programmes, talks on student finance and help with the application process.

We encourage students to take up the many opportunities we offer for enrichment and development, to ensure they enter the world as confident, well rounded young adults. Being a member of the Student Union is a great way to get involved in shaping the student experience at Tupton Hall, and be an ambassador for the school. There are also opportunities to do charity work and volunteering, work experience, go on overseas visits, join clubs and sports groups and get involved in music and drama productions.

Student life at Tupton Hall Sixth Form is never dull! There is always something interesting or exciting happening, often centred around the common room, which is a space for students to socialise, eat and study.

We are a community – one where students are encouraged to achieve, enjoy their learning and gain valuable experiences.
