Beyond the Classroom
A very important feature of the Tenby Ipoh Sixth Form is the opportunity it provides for students to take part in community service. By choosing how they would like to work with our service partners, students are able to help those less fortunate than themselves. Students learn so much about hteir own values and their compassion towards other people through community service. This is therefore an essential part of the course.
Students are expected to take on responsibilities in school and will all develop their leadership skill through a variety of opportunities available to them. All students in the Tenby Ipoh Sixth Form are eligible to apply to become Head Students, Prefects, Student Counsellors and House Captains. These post-holders will play a key role in assisting staff and other students in the running of the school.
SUPPORT & GUIDANCE
Students are allocated a tutor who will monitor their progress both within the classroom and in co-curricular activities, discussing any problems or challenges that may be experienced. The tutor offers one to one support and, with our small tutor groups, the pupils benefit from the in-depth knowledge their tutor will have of them, their interests and their aspirations. This becomes especially important when students come to choose a suitable degree course and prepare their application, where their tutor will be their initial guide. For students with additional needs, the school has a dedicated unit that helps with students where English is a second language or any other additional needs a pupil may have.
C.A.S.E (CREATIVITY, ACTION, SERVICE, ENRICHMENT)
All Sixth Form students participate in C.A.S.E. As part of this, students explore topics and issues under the headings of Creativity, Action, Service and Enrichment. Time is set aside in school to develop key skills and understanding through a series of visiting speakers, visits and activities. However, students are also expected to build their C.A.S.E portfolio through participation in leadership opportunities, sports events and teams, community service activities, the arts and life skills workshops.
