The transition from GCSE to A Level is a significant time for students. Social pressures from peer groups and social media abound; whilst in the classroom subjects get harder and the careful planning of study time is crucial to academic success. This is the time where individual support and attention can be vital to future success. Seaford’s Deputy Head and Head of Sixth Form, William Yates, focuses on all aspects of life in the Sixth Form and ensures all pupils are on track to reach their potential.
John Green, Headmaster said: ‘In a good school students need to feel valued, trusted and respected. At Seaford we have a very strong academic core and we look after our students. We inspire personal ambition and success so that personal bests are achieved inside and outside the classroom’.
• Fantastic facilities and location, individual academic focus and a range of extra-curricular activities
• A breadth of choice in A Level subjects: from more traditional A Levels to Law and Creative Writing
• Excellent pastoral care and careers advice
• Separate boarding facilities for the Upper Sixth to help prepare students for university life
• Support for the academically gifted to reach their full potential. John Doy, Head of Academic Enrichment, has set up a mentoring system that stretches students beyond the curriculum and coaches students through the Oxbridge application process.
Seaford develops well-rounded, articulate students who have the confidence to succeed. Alex Hodson, who plans to read Medicine, said: ‘Seaford stretches us academically, I really enjoy exploring ideas with my mentor and I feel supported to do well.’
John Green would like to invite prospective students and parents to a Sixth Form Open Evening on Tuesday 24th February from 6.30-8pm at Seaford College. Come along and see why our Sixth Form has grown dramatically over the last 18 months.
Open Mornings Saturday 7th February and 14th March 9-11am
