Every subject at Kingsmead Sixth Form is taught by subject specialists. Our students receive a range of support and intervention mechanisms designed to support you throughout your Sixth Form journey. The support system is focused on ensuring that students and staff know exactly what they understand, from what they do not and looking to address these gaps in knowledge.
We use specialist Maths teachers to support students with their understanding and application of maths across a range of subjects including; Psychology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science. During these sessions students will be taught the maths required and how to apply it in their relevant subjects to achieve A*s.
Similarly, we use specialist English teachers to develop the written skills of our students, particularly in subjects where extended writing is key to success. These include, but are not exclusive to, History, Geography and Religious Studies. These interventions are aimed at developing the art of crafting an essay or extended piece of writing. They build the student's confidence and understanding of exactly what an A* essay looks and feels like at A-Level.
