Student Expectations

As well as the increased academic demands placed upon Sixth Form, life in the Sixth Form will be a different experience for all students in many ways. 

Our commitment to every Sixth Form student

 

  • Inspirational teaching and world class facilities. 
  • Personalised learning and a unique university support process.
  • Student Leadership Opportunities - We will continue to provide an ever-increasing amount of student leadership positions. All students in Sixth Form are eligible to apply to become Head Boy/Girl, Prefects and Heads of House. These post-holders will play a key role in assisting staff and other students in the running of the school.
  • Trips - Life in the Sixth Form will provide students with an opportunity to attend a variety of trips, which will develop them as young people as well as support their university applications. In conjunction with pupils we will plan and undertake a week-long bonding trip at the start of year 12. This will be an adventure week allowing pupils to spend time getting to know each other whilst also learning new skills. Students will also travel abroad as part of their university preparation. 
  • Tutor Time/PSHE - Each student will be allocated an experienced tutor who will mentor them through their sixth form years. This time will continue to support the development of our students outside their subject areas. Year 12 will focus on preparation for university, study skills, leadership opportunities, planning summer internship/work experience placements, planning trips and starting to write their personal statements/essays for university applications. Year 13 students will focus on completing their university applications and preparing for life beyond BSKL.
  • Common Room and Study Areas - All students will have access to our purpose built sixth form common room where they will be able to spend their break and lunchtimes relaxing with their peers. In addition to the common room, all students will have access to a  exclusive private study area during break, lunchtimes and after school. Sixth Form Students may also use the impressive facilities.  
  • Extra Curricular - School life and learning does not end in the classroom. Students will continue to be offered opportunities to be involved in a wide variety of activities and services where they will learn new skills. These include leadership roles and extra curricular clubs; the International Gold Award, MUN, sports clubs, community service, music groups, school production, FOBISIA events and much more.
  • MacBook Air - As is the case at IGCSE, all of the students studying in the Sixth Form are given a MacBook Air to support them in their studies. This is loaned to the students during their time at BSKL and is included in the fees.

Student expectations

 

  • Effective time management to keep to deadlines - Students will find studying in the Sixth Form is a step up from IGCSE and they will need to take greater responsibility for their learning. Students’ progress will still be monitored closely by their tutor, and offered support should they fall behind with work - it is essential though that all do their best to adhere to work deadlines. This is particularly important for pupils undertaking any courses with an element of coursework/portfolio/personal investigation.
  • Academic Honesty - Students must exercise academic honesty in all aspects of their work and will receive sessions on this in tutorial time.
  • Dress Code - Sixth form students are required to dress smartly and our expectations are similar to those one would expect in a business environment. Given the position of Sixth Form students as role models within the school, it is expected that they will follow published guidelines. 
  • Independent Learning - As with IGCSE pupils must continue to take responsibility for their own learning.
