To make everyone's life in Post 16 successful and enjoyable, teachers expect all students to follow these very simple guidelines.
- For your fellow students, your teachers and your surroundings
- Accept that being a Post 16 student gives you privileges not enjoyed by other students, but that these come with the responsibility to act as a role model to younger students.
- Shoulder responsibility for your own actions.
- Be honest - with yourself and your teachers.
- Be reliable - for instance by being punctual, catching up on missed work, meeting deadlines.
- Try to support other students when necessary.
- Don't put others down.
- Use the same rules for everybody.
- Remember the Post 16 facilities are provided for all members of the Sixth Form.
- Positively no discrimination.
Be an active Post 16 student
- Do your best to make life in Post 16 the best it can be for everyone.
- Don't sit back and wait for others to do all the work.
- Give something back to the rest of the school.
- If there's a problem we need to know.
- Don't keep quiet and let it fester; don't gossip about it to others; don't decide to miss lessons; just be open and honest and then we can deal with it.
