Mr A Bristow
Sixth Form Lead
Welcome from Mr
Bristow, Sixth Form
Lead
I am proud of the opportunities that we have to offer
here at our Sixth Form. Our range of academic
subjects being delivered by our experienced staff
offering excellent support. We have strong links with
a variety of employers to help with our students
journeys through the subjects we offer and the
mentorship programme. Students are encouraged
to develop their study skills to fulfill their potential
and prepare for university or an apprenticeship. We
encourage independent study with dedicated and
supported time during the week.
During Session 3 students are timetabled with a
programme of academic support to see staff. Here
students may choose to go over homework or areas
they need to develop. Alongside this we have a
range of clubs and societies to help students
develop their interpersonal skills. Students who
attend the UTC all have opportunities to work on
projects set by our employer partners, which have a
proven track record of helping them gain their next
steps.
