Pastoral Care

Your Sixth Form years are an incredibly important time of transformation - and very much a gateway to university and beyond. Tranby Sixth Form is built on giving each and every student the highest level of support both academic and pastoral.

Every Sixth Former is a member of a tutor group. This group will provide daily contact, not just for registration but also advice, planning and mutual support; targets are set and guidence is offeredat the various stages of your Sixth Form career. Your tutor will become a key figure during your time in the Sixth Form and a point of contact between School and home.

You will belong to one of the School's four houses; Marvell, Holtby, Johnson or Venn. There are plenty of events throughout the academic year to help your house achieve victory.

Our experienced team of teaching staff, tutors and careers advisor know our Sixth Form students very well. This is a consequence of our Sixth Form classes being small, averaging five students per class.


Any pupils experiencing anti-social behaviour, bullying, anxiety or who have concerns about a friend can also submit their concerns by clicking here and completing our ‘Need to Know’ form.  Your report will be sent to a confidential email account managed by Heads of Year. The form is available for pupils, families and the local community.  We will not store any personal information if you use this service.
