SIXTH FORM POD
Central to student life at Homewood is the Sixth Form “Pod”, a ‘hang out’ area which comprises a café selling a variety of hot and cold food and drinks. Café style seating with bistro tables and chairs creates a relaxed mood and space to mingle.
Sixth Form Study Area
Next door to the “Pod” is a large study area with computer availability for use by sixth formers, often working in groups. The study area is often supervised and there is access to independent study work for students to extend themselves. We also have two silent study areas in the building affectionately known as the “X-Box”, and students are often also to be found working in the school library and in dedicated work spaces in various departments.
The Media Centre, which operates as a commercial outlet for the local community provides Sixth Form students with facilities to print or produce copies of their work to professional standard; in colour, laminated, or enlarged up to A1 size, or transferred onto canvas.
