Supporting Your Studies

In the Sixth Form students will develop the skills required to become academically confident and independent which are important stepping stones to university and later life.

Students will be advised and supported every step of the way, not least by the close involvement of their Tutor who will provide encouragement and guidance throughout their time in Sixth Form.


These allow the tutor to build a close and supportive relationship with their each student in their group. Sixth Form Tutors work closely with students intending to apply for higher education offering; guidance through the UCAS process, mock interview opportunities and supporting preparation for individual university entry tests.

In addition, all students attend weekly PSHE sessions which include a programme of external speakers and guidance on supporting academic study. Towards the end of Year 12, these sessions concentrate on the preparation for application to higher education.

The college has strong links with the local universities at Bradford, Leeds and Huddersfield, with admission tutors regularly visiting to provide information on the range of undergraduate courses on offer and advice on the application process. We are also linked to the University of Huddersfield’s Progression Programme and the University of Leeds’ Reach for Excellence Programme.

“Teachers use their sound subject knowledge to engage students in robust intellectual discussions and well–planned research. As a result, students are confident in grappling with new concepts and explaining ideas. Students value feedback on essays in a range of subjects, and opportunities for practical work in science.”
