With the greater proportion of marks being awarded for literacy in examinations and in the knowledge that employers value good literacy, literacy is a significant focus in the Sixth Form. We ensure students are reading widely and often and that they are given every opportunity to develop their speaking and listening skills. We also provide literacy mats that all students have access to, which help them with their academic writing and regular study skill sessions on how to improve exam technique.
