Academic and pastoral support is extremely important to us and is a key part of academic success at Impington International College. Sixth form is a transitional period in your life; linking school, university, employment and beyond, and pastoral support is key in enabling you to achieve your goals and enjoy your exciting yet challenging time with us.
You will enjoy small tutor groups of both Year 12 and 13 students and your tutor will be your first port of call for all pastoral issues, offering guidance and support throughout your two years. There is also a dedicated Student Manager, who is on hand to help you with any issues of either a personal or academic nature.
During your time at sixth form, your tutor will monitor your academic progress and attendance, getting to know you and helping you to make progress. Academic achievement is reported on regularly throughout your two years, keeping both you and your parents or guardians fully informed of how much progress you are making and what your final grades are likely to be. The Student Manager works with a variety of external agencies or personnel to ensure you have all the support you need to succeed.
You will be guided through the options and choices that you have ahead of you following your time spent with us. These options include:
- studying at university
- undertaking an apprenticeship
- moving into the world of work
- taking a gap year
All of these options, and any questions that you have, will be discussed in detail during assemblies and in form time. Our Lead Teacher for sixth form, as well as your tutor, will guide you through the university application process; we have a full programme of support to ensure you get to the university, apprenticeship or employment of your choice. Your form tutors, subject teachers and the Lead Teacher for sixth form are also on hand to check any applications and personal statements. We also run a mock interview day, which includes a number of subject specialist group interviews run by external employers which aim to give you hands-on experience on how to approach a formal interview.
