HAZEL GROVE Sixth Form

Tutorial Programme

Embarking upon A Levels and becoming a Sixth Form student can be surprisingly daunting for a number of reasons:

  • Your subjects will initially feel much more demanding
  • You have to work independently (research, wider reading etc
  • You become an instant role model for younger students
  • You have to juggle academic work with a busy enrichment schedule
  • You have to actively consider your future beyond Sixth Form.
  • Things change socially e.g. part-time job, learning to drive

Your tutor is going to be a huge support to you as you settle into Sixth Form life…

  • Building relationships with peers
  • Coping strategies and personal organisation
  • Monitoring your academic progress
  • Ensuring that you benefit from enrichment opportunities
  • Monitoring your participation in extra-curricular activities
  • Pastoral Care (health, attendance etc
  • UCAS/Futures (personal statements, references)

Your tutor is your first point of call... but these people are all here to help!
