Sixth Form Support and Guidance

Our strong focus on pastoral support continues in to the Sixth Form.

We focus on making sure our students are safe, supported and able to flourish.

Naviagte the sections below to explore the support teams available to Sixth Formers at King Edward VI School. 

Sixth Form Pastoral Team

Your Head of Year has an office in the Concourse and is available every day before school, and at numerous points throughout the day, to talk to you about any aspect of your school life or academic, personal and social development. They will offer practical and emotional support throughout your two years in the Sixth Form.



Your tutor will play a key role in your time at King Edward’s Sixth Form. Your tutor will get to know you well, monitor your progress and support and guide you. You’ll have time with your tutor every morning.

School Nurses

We have a team of school nurses on-site throughout the school day. Students can pop in and see the nurses at any point.

Curriculum Support

All students at King Edward’s have, as a matter of principle, equal access to the school’s curriculum, notwithstanding any disability or identified learning difficulties. Sixth Form students, who have been assessed with a Specific Learning Difficulty and are on the Curriculum Support Register, will be monitored and their provision based around their SEN reviewed annually. Examples of support that can be offered by Curriculum Support include: Study Skills, literacy and social emotional intervention.


We have an experienced counsellor on-site throughout the school day. Students can book a confidential slot with the councillor for support, whether it’s school related or not.


Our Chaplain, Mr Goodchild, offers the opportunity for an informal chat for those of all-faiths and none.
