Advice and Guidance

Bay House Sixth Form will provide you with friendly and professional advice and guidance:

  • What kind of course is right for me?
  • Who do I talk to for careers information?
  • How do I organise a visit to the Sixth Form?
  • How do I apply to the Sixth Form?

Each student has a personal tutor and joins a sixth form tutor group of about twenty students. The tutor, under the general direction of the Head of Sixth Form, has an oversight of each student’s work, personal development and future prospects. Students run their own Sixth Form Forum.

Students produce their own yearbook, can assist as mentors for younger pupils, and participate in a variety of fundraising activities. Successful social events in previous years have included fashion shows, karaoke evenings, barbecues and staff/student sports matches.
