6th Form is about more than academic study
At Brentford 6th Form we offer an extensive enrichment programme. Whatever you go on to do after 6th Form you will be expected to have done more than just studying for your examined subjects, although this of course is your most important priority. We offer activities such as leading assemblies, debating, mentoring, paired reading, in-class support and community activities.
Supporting your learning – helping you succeed
Tutors and mentors will support you in your learning by tracking your progress and helping to set and review personal targets. Subject teachers will set target grades for each of you based on your GCSE results and external data. You need to be able to assess your own progress and think about how you can achieve the best possible results. There are regular meetings between staff to discuss your progress, monitor your attendance and punctuality and address any concerns. Hardworking students who are achieving above expectations are identified and congratulated.
6th Formers are encouraged to attend university open days and residential schools. Recently, our students have been selected for summer school courses in medicine, natural sciences and humanities subjects at Oxford, Cambridge and other Russell Group universities. We have also been successful in placing students on courses at other universities, both in London and elsewhere, for taster sessions in engineering, pharmacy, medicine, law and English Literature. The aim of these courses is to give students a better idea of life at university.
