Support, Wellbeing & Enrichment
Student support and wellbeing
We are very pleased to have a large team in Capital 6 which supports our students holistically during their time with us and beyond.
Our experienced and dedicated Head of Capital 6 oversees academic progress, including independent study, homework and provides bespoke support with our students’ next steps.
We also have a dedicated Capital 6 Pastoral Lead who oversees students’ wellbeing, attendance and behaviour to ensure that they are fully supported to achieve their potential.
In addition, our Student Support Officer is on hand every day to provide assistance, answer queries and support students’ learning especially in their independent study periods. Our Capital 6 Coordinator ensures the smooth running of the sixth form and manages our bursary programme as well as ensuring our students receive a personalised schedule of careers guidance to help them make informed decisions about their next steps after Capital 6. We are also lucky to have an academic mentor who provides small group and one-to-one tuition for students to ensure they maximise their academic attainment.
We also work closely with the Academy’s wider student welfare team to offer specialised student support services should our students need it during their sixth form studies.
The SBC6 consortium offers a full enrichment programme on Wednesday afternoons including community projects, lecture programmes, work based skills, sport or the arts.
Each school will offer a different programme and students can select from any of these programmes on a termly basis giving the widest possible choice. For example students may want to follow a competitive sports programme for the first term at Capital and then take part in a volunteering programme based at our consortium partners for the second semester. This range of extra-curricular opportunities is unique to the consortium and will allow all Capital 6 students the chance to build their CV in a bespoke fashion to strengthen their university or employment application. This will also create a collegiate-style educational experience helping to prepare students for higher education.
