Sixth Form Life
The Sixth Form is an exciting time for students; it is a period of change and transition where they specialise in their studies, develop new skills and take on increased responsibility and leadership opportunities. Lessons are purposeful and students enjoy positive relationships with their subject teachers, Sixth Form Tutors, Miss Loveridge, Head of Sixth Form and Mr Gowney-Hedges, Director of Sixth Form.
At Kineton High School the common room is the centre of Sixth Form life. Here students have a place where they are able to socialise at break and lunchtimes. When not in formal lessons, facilities like the library and dedicated study rooms are available for private study. Students are expected to manage their own time to enhance their own learning but we support them in developing these skills through the use of supervised study periods. We provide a sixth form computer room but are also happy for students to bring their own laptops to utilise the Sixth Form wi fi.
Sixth Formers play a very important role at Kineton High School. We have a dedicated Student Leadership team that consists of Head Boy/Girl, House Captains, Sports Captains, Konnect Student Directors and Subject Prefects. Students have the opportunity to apply for these positions at various points in their Sixth Form journey and develop links between the Sixth Form and lower school, supporting lower school students and organising 6th Form specific social events such as the ‘Winter Ball’ and ‘Year 13 Prom’. Sixth Form students develop and mature through the responsibilities that they are given, being positive role models for the lower years.
