PSHE is integrated into the Sixth Form Tutor Programme. The three key areas of focus are: Study Skills, Employability Skills and Life Skills. Full details of these skills are available in our prospectus under ‘Pastoral Programme‘.
The Year 12 programme is based on building our community and developing study skills required to be successful at A Level. We also introduce aspects of safety within Year 12 as students begin to explore their independence as young adults.
The Year 13 programme covers key topics focussing on the students’ lives after Tudor Grange. Our sixth form has developed a plethora of resources to enable our students to secure their destinations of choice centring on employability skills; positive use of social media; protecting your digital footprint; and interview techniques. Each student also attends a session on awareness of sexual consent. Mr Jolly delivers UCAS and destinations support, Mrs Sweetman assists those applying for apprenticeships and a variety of staff each deliver talks on different facets of university life, including how to learn effectively and how to budget for those pursuing the higher education route.
We ensure that our tutor programme is dynamic to meet the current needs of society. We use student voice and feedback to inform our sessions on Sexual Health and integrate provision on the protected characteristics through varying strands where appropriate. Our programme is built on the principals of the PHSE Association Key Stage 5 guidance.
