Student Support

Your Sixth Form years are an incredibly important time of transformation – and very much a gateway to university and beyond. Hull Collegiate Sixth Form is built on giving each student the highest level of support, both academic and pastoral.

Every Sixth Former is a member of a Tutor Group. This group will provide a daily contact, not just for registration but also advice, planning and mutual support; targets are set and guidance is offered at the various stages of your Sixth Form career. Your tutor will become a key figure during your time in the Sixth Form and a point of contact between school and home.

You will also belong to one of the school’s four houses; Marvel, Holtby, Johnson or Venn. There are plenty of events throughout the academic year to help your house achieve victory, from the much-anticipated end-of-term pantomime to the fun runs and charity days.

Our experienced team of teaching staff, tutors and careers advisor know our Sixth Form students very well. This is a consequence of our Sixth Form classes being small, averaging six students per class.

Facilities

Sixth Form students enjoy excellent facilities to support them in their studies. Dedicated Sixth Form rooms are housed within the Wilberforce Centre and a refurbished common room provides the central hub for socialising and study. The centre also has its own Sixth Form ICT suite, in addition to the school’s two main ICT suites.

The Library is located on the top floor and has further ICT facilities, a team of librarians to support students and a wealth of resources for each subject area.

Preparing for the Future

Each year, Sixth Former destinations include top universities, sought after apprentice programmes, meaningful gap years or employment. To ensure that students achieve their aspirations, outstanding support and advice is provided by a team of specialist staff. PSHCE mornings in the Sixth Form are focused on developing practical skills and knowledge for the future, as well as the application process for university, apprenticeship or work.

Breakfast meetings with industry professionals give the opportunity for small groups of students to talk to people who are working within a specific industry, such as PR, Medicine, Fashion and managing your own business, in addition to the annual Careers Fair held at Hull Collegiate School, which is attended by local companies from a wide range of employment sectors.
