Student Help & Support

No matter what is bothering you, no matter how big or small, there is a network of people at Hornsea Sixth Form who are available to help you.

Mentoring: 

Each student is allocated a tutor who is dedicated to supporting you. They will arrange regular meetings with you which it is important you attend – even if you don’t have any problems you want to discuss, it’s good to get to know your tutor in case you do need their support in the future. If you wish to speak to your tutor when you don’t have an appointment scheduled, pop and see them or drop them an email, they’ll be pleased to help.

Student Drop-In Sessions:

Drop-in sessions are informal, one-to-one discussions where you can talk to someone who is supportive and respectful.  They can help you to work through any issues or difficulties you may be experiencing.  Any Sixth Form student can drop-in to see Holly (student counsellor) on Tuesday mornings in Sixth Form or to see Jayne (school nurse) on Thursday afternoons in Student Support.  

Sixth Form Team:

The Sixth Form Team (Mr Brocklehurst, Mrs Salisbury, Mrs Cook & Mrs Richardson) are here to help you. If you are struggling with your lessons, are unsure about anything or need discuss something which is bothering you, contact them to make an appointment or pop and see them.

Careers Advice:

Are you unsure about what to do after Sixth Form? Are you concerned about your subject choices? Are you wondering what options are available to you? Make an appointment to see Mrs Richardson, our Sixth Form career advisers. They are available to chat about your options and to help you make a plan to reach your goal.
