The Sixth Form day is not like that in the rest of school. Pupil’s take responsibility for their own learning, with seminar-style classes and a close interaction with the teacher.
Over the course of their week, pupils will have their taught lessons (we recommend 3 A level or BTEC equivalent though some pupils do take 4), study periods and enrichment sessions on the timetable. Wednesdays are dedicated to enrichment to ensure that we have enough time to deliver a high quality programme.
As an example of the typical day, here’s James’ weekly timetable:
|1||A Level Geography||A Level Geography||Study Period||BTEC Business||Assembly|
|2||A Level Geography||A Level History||A Level History||BTEC Business||BTEC Business|
|3||Study Period||BTEC Business||BTEC Business||A Level Geography||A Level History|
|4||Study Period||BTEC Business||BTEC Business||A Level Geography||A Level History|
|5||A Level History||GAMES||Enrichment||Study Period||A Level Geography|
|6||A Level History||GAMES||Enrichment||Study Period||Study Period|
During lunch times, James can order a baguette from the canteen, pop over and have lunch in the canteen itself (please see our page on Food here) or he is able to sign out and get lunch from Leamington.
For study periods, James can use the Sixth Form common area (it’s a no noise or games zone – study only!) or the school library. While James studies, he will be using one of the hybrid computers the Sixth Form pupils are all given while they study with us (a windows tablet connected to a keyboard).
