Pastoral Care & Bursary
On entering the sixth form at Lady Lumley’s, you will be assigned to a sixth form tutor group with fellow students from Year 12. There is a daily session when you can meet your form tutor for any individual support you may require and a strong sense of respect between staff and students underpins everything we do.
In addition, our experienced sixth form staff are always available to discuss any matters of concern with you: academic or pastoral. In Sixth Form Mrs Allan, Student Support Manager is a non-teaching role who is available to deal with day to-day issues as they arise.
Mrs Allan works closely with form tutors and teaching staff to ensure that all students achieve the best possible progression and attainment. If required working with students and parents to plan intervention where a student may need additional support.
At Lady Lumley’s we pride ourselves on the caring atmosphere within our sixth form and we emphasise that interpersonal skills are as important as academic qualifications. We understand that every student is different, requiring a personalised approach and individual guidance so that their personal and academic goals can be achieved.
