Sixth Form life is an exciting change from the highly structured day that pupils are familiar with, to one where they are encouraged to develop independent study skills and are expected to take responsibility for their own learning. Of course, our experienced teaching staff are always happy to offer assistance along the way.
Our extensive co-curricular program covers a range of interests including sports, paired-reading with our Junior School pupils, music, the Young Engineers and Young Enterprise schemes, robotics and debating amongst many others. These activities enable students to hone vital skills that are desired by universities and employers alike.
One of the privileges afforded the Sixth Form students is the use of a common room. This is an area that the students can call their own and is a place for them to relax and unwind. Our Sixth Form common room has a sofa area, pool tables, an integrated music system, a TV/DVD area as well as WIFI access. Attached to the common room is the coffee shop, which caters for breakfast, lunch, dinner and light refreshments throughout the day Student welfare is paramount in the Sixth Form with a dedicated, experienced form tutor team always on hand to offer help and advice. Our Higher Education advisors will provide the students with the assistance they need to complete successful UCAS applications. Our support structure has been described as ‘outstanding’ in a recent Estyn inspection and is something we are very proud of.
Year in and year out, our Sixth Formers never fail to impress with their levels of achievement and fill their teachers with an immense sense of pride. Students leave Rougemont sad to say goodbye, but at the same time happy in the knowledge they can embark on the next leg of their journey confident that they have all the skills and attributes required to build a successful future.
