Hayesfield offers an outstanding tutorial support programme for all of its students. Students are assigned a personal tutor who they will see every morning. In that time students will learn about current affairs, personal and health issues, and plans for university and employment. They will also set personal academic targets for improvement and review these with their tutor 1:1. Knowing the tutor well is invaluable when applying to university or for employment as they will be able to write a detailed and effective reference of support.
At Hayesfield, a real strength of our Sixth Form is our understanding of the support students need to make the transition from pupil to student. A day of induction after GCSE examinations, summer school opportunities and a series of 1:1 mentoring sessions, ensure that every student creates a study programme that perfectly matches their attributes and ambitions.
“Being a Sixth Form tutor is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job. From simple joys of an early morning Guardian quiz to supporting a student’s mammoth effort and subsequent excitement of a successful UCAS application, the tutorial system is what sets Hayesfield apart as a Sixth Form. A Haysefield tutor group is a happy, supportive yet challenging forum and one I relish being a part.”

“Being a Sixth Form tutor is all about supporting students over these two transformational years. Whether it’s supporting the transition from GCSE, getting involved in the student-led fun charity events or providing support on application forms for the next stage, being part of this process is a unique privilege.”
