Welcome to The Sixth Form

Introduction

At St Thomas More School we pride ourselves on the pastoral care offered to our students- and this is fundamental to what we do in the Sixth Form. Very much like lower school Pastoral tutors work closely with our students on a daily basis, however instead of Head of Houses the overall pastoral care in Sixth Form is overseen by our dedicated Sixth Form Team.

We understand that the two years in Sixth form will be vital to our student’s futures and the work we do with them, can, and will shape their paths.

Our main goals are exactly the same as lower school;

Pastoral Programme:

Horizons Programme:

An important aspect of our Sixth Form timetable is the ‘Horizons Programme’. Currently this involves various workshops and speakers delivering inspirational messages, Leisure activities, exploration of contemporary moral issues and work experience placements. We strongly believe the students should be challenged to go outside of their comfort zone; and should be given the opportunity to engage with a variety of activities as part of their 6th Form experience.

Extra Curriculum:

The school has an extensive range of extra curriculua activities on offer. There are many successful sporting teams students can be involved in, including rugby and football. The drama and music department’s yearly productions are always excellent, with Sixth Formers often taking lead roles. As well as this there is also the opportunity to achieve the Duke of Edinburgh Award, there are various trips that students can opt to partake in and a range of clubs across subjects that students can engage with.
