Medical and dental appointments are to be made outside school hours where possible. Students leaving/arriving during the school day for appointments must sign in/out in the Sixth Form Signing In/Out Book (located near the main entrance on both sites).
Guidance and support
Guidance and support for students is available from the Head and Assistant Heads of Sixth Form (Mr Spreyer, Mr Owen, Ms Morrison), form tutors, subject teachers and the Sixth Form administrator (Ms Mason). If you are experiencing difficulties in any area of your school life you should first consult your form tutor. The Sixth Form administrator is based in the Common Room (top floor, Park Site).
Study in school
The Sixth Form Study Room is a silent area designed for private study during your free periods (2nd floor, Park Site). Mobile phones must be switched off or on silent. No eating or drinking in the study room. Opening times as follows.
Monday - Thursday
Sixth Form students are not required to wear school uniform but must observe the following rules.
No see-through clothing
No beachwear, crop tops, vest tops or short shorts
No hats or hoods in school
Appropriate footwear (no sandals in labs or workshops)

Mobile phones may be used in the common room during rec and lunchtimes. They must not be used anywhere else in school and they must be switched off during lessons and assemblies.
Student progress is monitored throughout the year via formal exams and assessments in class. If a student is at risk of not making good progress due to poor attendance, effort, achievement or behaviour, they will be placed on the Prendergast Sixth Form Stage System at the appropriate stage (for further information, click link on right hand side of this page).
