Welcome to Virgo Fidelis Sixth Form
Welcome from Mrs Edwards, Head of Sixth Form and Assistant Headteacher
Before you decide what you want to study, ask yourself these questions;
- Where am I going?
- What does the future hold?
- What do I need to study to lead me to my chosen career?
If you are actively asking these questions then you've made the first step.
At Virgo Fidelis, we understand the move from secondary school to sixth form, as well as the development and broader horizons that come with it, so as part of our committment to you, we will continuously provide you with the appropriate advice and guidance regarding your future aspirations.
Most of our students find Virgo Fidelis a relaxed and happy environment. The curriculum is varied and affords each student a wide choice. In addition to your academic subjects, there is a range of enrichment activities in which you are invited to participate (e.g. Zumba class, school magazine, debating society, business enterprise, sports, community service, choir etc.) .
The Religious Studies Department also organises a special programme (approximately 3 days a year) which is led by a team of specialists and encourages you to reflect on your role within the community and to consider a range of religious and social issues. These sessions are obligatory.
We have a very strong tutorial system and you will be part of a Tutor Group of around 20 students that meets weekly. Additionally, you will have regular scheduled tutorials with your Form Tutor. These are positive sessions to monitor progress, set targets and help support you both academically and personally.
Careers guidance will be offered throughout your time in the Sixth Form by your Form Tutor, the Careers/UCAS Co-ordinator. They as well as your subject teachers will encourage you to find out about higher education opportunities and different career paths. And even after you move on from Virgo Fidelis, we stay in touch to keep up with your progress and find out more about your chosen career destinations.
