in our Sixth Form
Ecclesbourne School Sixth Form Centre.
In the dedicated Sixth Form Centre you will find: the Sixth Form Office, a large,
informal study space, a silent work room, a computer room and a deli
specialising in a range of healthy meal and snack options. Sixth Form students
also have a designated supervised silent study area. Most lessons take place in
the main body of the school with the Sixth Form Centre reserved for private
study and some formal events such as assemblies. Naturally, the Sixth Form
Centre is the one area of school where sixth former privilege is most apparent.
In the Sixth Form Centre, regulations, especially with respect to uniform, are
more relaxed. In the Sixth Form Centre only, students may loosen ties, wear
cardigans without jackets and use their mobile phones. Full uniform is
expected for formal events held in the Sixth Form Centre such as assemblies.
This reflects the real responsibility that we have in ensuring that Sixth Form
forms a bridge between school and the adult world.
Sixth Form Support
The Sixth Form Office team comprises of a Head of Sixth Form, a Head of Year
12, a Head of Year 13 and a Sixth Form Progress Leader. There are also 18
Sixth Form tutors, all of whom are experienced in post 16 education. You will
see your tutor every day and these will be the people who write your reference
for you in Year 13. In addition, you will also have access to independent advice
from the careers office.
