Supporting you every step of the way

A welcome from Jane Sames, Head of the Mossbourne Sixth Form

On behalf of the Mossbourne Sixth Form Team I would like to extend the warmest of welcomes and wish you the very best of luck in your approaching public exams. The Sixth Form team are an exceptional group who pride themselves on being experts on the students in our care. We treat each student as an individual, getting to know the unique strengths and aspirations that each of you have.

We aim for every student to experience superior teaching from highly knowledgeable teachers, in every lesson. We foster both independence and the critical thinking skills which are critical for young adults to realise their aspirations. Our students secure places at exceptionally demanding universities, including Oxbridge, Russell Group or international universities. We take pride in helping our students to embark on careers such as careers in medicine, dentistry, engineering, veterinary science and many more. And to help prepare Sixth formers to embark on the next stage of their journey, we seek to inspire them with regular exposure to experts from a variety of fields, including academia, industries, politics and the media.

Learning goes beyond the classroom; opportunity and confidence are fostered via enrichment programmes, links to industry and the arts. Our students have unique access to the Mossbourne Rowing Academy, alumni of which have elected to study in the USA. Trained staff deliver the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which ensures our students are noticeable amongst the raft of university applicants. Our Careers Advice and Guidance and our Early Applicants Programme are particular strengths. Unlimited support is given by teams of approachable and experienced tutors who guide and advise our students through the UCAS programme. We help to create exciting opportunities through our Medical Bursary and Architecture Bursary Programmes.

I recognise that the recent past has been extremely challenging for us all. It is more important than ever that we help our young adults to develop resilience. I believe that students that help others and make friends, students that foster positive relations with adults, students that maintain personal routines, students that rationalise disappointments and students that get involved in activities and find people that they know they can turn to are all key factors in dealing with hard times. We seek to nurture these critical personal skills in all of our students.

My final point is the most important.  None of us, whatever our age or maturity, are able to cope single-handedly all the time.  The clever thing is to know and recognise this and to be ready and willing to ask for help when you need it.

I hope to meet each of you personally during the course of the enrolment for the next academic year and understand your individual aspirations and your potential. A very warm welcome to Mossbourne Sixth Form.
