Life as a Sixth Form Student

St Margaret’s students benefit from a self-contained centre. With its own entrance, corridor, lockers, diner and classrooms, as well as the supervised areas of the Internet Lounge and Study Centre, which enables students to feel part of a community.

Students are allocated to a form group upon joining Sixth Form and therefore have a form tutor who is available to support their educational and pastoral needs on a daily basis. Assemblies are held twice per week and every Tuesday, the Learning for Life programme is delivered with a host of interesting talks, presentations and activities taking place.

Lessons are predominantly taught in the Sixth Form Centre with break and lunch provided in the Sixth Form Café/Bistro.

Students are encouraged to put forward their suggestions on potential menus and dishes they would like to see via the Committee.

The Sixth Form team are on hand from 8.30am until 4.30pm weekdays and are happy to help with any queries or questions you may have.

Student Intervention Plan (Sip)

Here at St Margaret’s Sixth Form, we have an active intervention and support strategy through our Student Intervention Plan (SIP). If at any time you are, perhaps, struggling with the workload or a particular part of the course, we will be able to offer support to help you successfully overcome these hurdles.

The success behind the SIP programme is the nature of care provided by subject tutors and the Sixth Form team. You will be given support on potential revision techniques, after-school help, mentoring and monitoring. The SIP system is a positive way of getting you back on track and moving in a positive direction.
