Support for all

Head of Sixth Form: Mrs K Griffin
Well-Being & Progress Officer (Sixth Form): Miss E Heyes
Sixth Form Administrator: Mrs V Glew

NGHS understands that transition into the sixth form can be a demanding process and we are well placed to offer support and guidance.

Our school-based context allows for a strong and supportive pastoral system which provides individualised care and advice throughout the sixth form journey. Students are allocated to one of our three houses with a Form Tutor who they will see daily. This tutor is the first port of call for any academic or pastoral issues that arise. They also support students through many of the stages of the Post 18 process.

Many of our form tutors, our Pastoral Administrator and our Head of Sixth Form also provide UCAS advice and support and can signpost students to a variety of pastoral support services including our school counsellor and external agencies if the need arises. NGHS is also a partner school of the Anna Freud Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing, something which we take very seriously.

Sixth Form Achievement Support

Miss  E Heyes is our Well-Being and Progress Officer in the Sixth Form:

As Well-being and Progress Officer for the Sixth Form my role is to ensure that you are fully motivated to achieve your full potential during your time in NGHS6.  This is an exciting time but it is not without its challenges, and my role is to support you and provide you with the strategies you need to navigate the path towards your future goals.  My door is always open to discuss your academic achievement and progress, or anything that is causing you concern.  Your well-being is at the heart of enjoying your time here, which in turn will enable you to achieve excellence in all that you do.
