BSL Sixth Form
There are three key areas of school policy that sixth form parents and students need to be aware of.
It is compulsory for Sixth Formers to be in school for the full day from 8:40 am until 2.50 pm if staying for lunch or 2.20 pm if not.
When not studying in a class or enjoying break Sixth Form students have Study Time. Study Time takes place in the Study Room (Room 4).
- It is the student’s responsibility to use Study Time productively, it is not free time.
- If students are found not behaving correctly during this time they will be moved to a classroom to work under supervision. A-levels involve a significant amount of work and each week students are expected to spend an additional 5+ hours per subject during their Study Time periods and homework.
- Eating during Study Time is not allowed
Regarding the school’s dress code policy, please remember that although for years 12 and 13 there is no school uniform, students are expected to dress in a respectful manner appropriate for study. For example a plain top, smart trousers/shorts or jeans (with no rips), flat
shoes or trainers. If you are dressed
inappropriately you will be asked to return home to change into more suitable clothes.
Students should not reveal inappropriate parts of the body – showing midriff, or having very short skirts/shorts is not acceptable.
One simple set of stud earrings is acceptable and any tattoos should not be visible.
Any makeup must be modest.
Students do not have permission to move between Senior and Junior school buildings without being accompanied by a member of staff.
As with the Secondary school students, there will be a duty rota in place assigning a teacher to walk with Sixth Form students and open the doors to the different school buildings before patio / lunch or class times so that students never need to walk in public space alone.
