A Supportive Environment
We believe that Shaftesbury and Sturminster Sixth Form is the ideal size; large enough to offer a wide range of courses, small enough that you feel part of a community where you are known and supported. Every student is part of a small form with a specialised Sixth Form tutor. Their role is to ensure that every student receives the personalised support they need to successfully make the step from GCSE to Sixth Form studies.
We believe that one of the keys to academic success is to help students form a clear plan for where they want their Sixth Form education to take them. All students have access to the Unifrog progression tool which helps them to plan for the future and they also work with subject teachers to set personalised targets and track their academic progress.
