About Homewood

All inclusive Sixth Form

Homewood Sixth Form has a wide range of options that cater for students of all different interests and aspirations. With a great variety of resources and teachers who are passionate about active learning, the Sixth Form here really bridges the gap between education and our futures.

The students here at Homewood’s Sixth Form are focused on their futures. However, the environment here encourages development in their independence and prepares them to really excel in their chosen life pathways.

In addition, Homewood Sixth Form students are involved in a whole range of extra-curricular activities and charity fundraising events. In 2018, students from all our form groups raised money for Macmillan Cancer by participating in our Bake Off and coffee morning.

Furthermore, students in the Sixth Form are given the responsibility to govern themselves with a Head Boy, Head Girl and a senior team of cabinet officers with a range of different duties.

Homewood staff also work alongside Sixth Form students each year in order to provide the Sixth Form with popular social events. Students work with Homewood staff to provide a range of social activities, including a gala, the prom and regular “Thank You” teas.

We are delighted that you have taken an interest in joining our Sixth Form and hope to see you in the near future.

Sixth Form
Cabinet

Students are encouraged to apply for the positions of Head Boy and Head Girl and to be members of the Sixth Form Cabinet that works in collaboration with them to take responsibility for student leadership in the school.

Members of this group coordinate charity fund raising events, organise social events, represent the school and work in close partnership with the Sixth Form staff leadership team.

Student Support

At Homewood, we pride ourselves on the quality of care and support we offer. All those entering the Sixth Form are allocated to a tutor who is responsible for guiding them through their Sixth Form years. Students meet with their tutor regularly and this time is used to help students engage with Homewood’s “QUEST” programme.

Time is regularly devoted to individual academic mentoring, as well as helping students to prepare for their work experience placements, give advice in planning their futures and developing study skills and time management. This is complemented by a programme of assemblies that involve many outside speakers to broaden students’ understanding of the wider world and to gain an insight into the huge range of opportunities that are available to them.
