PARENT PERSPECTIVES

The staff are passionate and personable and as a parent you are made to feel part of your son or daughters, progress from the very moment you set foot on the College campus at Open Evening. The principal is approachable, involved, extremely down to earth, and fully focused on providing the best sixth form experience for both students and parents. The communication you receive is very good and timely and any concerns you have are listened to.The College encourages a three-way partnership between students, teachers and parents, which has been both valuable and crucial to my daughter’s success in her studies. Elizabeth Romaine, parent of Biology, English Language and Literature and Graphics student, Alison Romaine

I have been really happy with the support and communication from Barton Peveril. My son was initially unsure about which A Levels to study, but he had a very helpful interview at the College after his GCSE results and subsequently opted for good subjects. He received four unconditional offers based on his predicted A Level grades and a strong personal statement expressing his genuine enthusiasm for the subject, which is largely due to the high standard of teaching at the College. Lisa Marsh, parent of Computer Science, Maths, Physics and Classical Civilization student, Joseph Marsh

Emily has loved her time at College and over the two years has gained immensely in both confidence in her own abilities and with other students.We all felt that the College was going to be a fantastic environment, from the first Open Evening we came to, and we were proved right! Alison Pegg, parent of Fine Art, Photography and Mathematics student, Emily Jade Pegg


WELCOME Choosing to study at Barton Peveril means joining a thriving learning community that is purposeful, creative and focused on your future. The College has an extraordinary spirit and vibrancy to it, which is welcoming and meaningful. Our campus feels more like a small university than a school, with impressive new buildings and bright, modern facilities. There is a real buzz of energy, enthusiasm and possibility about the place; a wow factor generated by our teaching and support staff, our ethos and above all, our students. I hope you will come to see the College for yourself at one of our Open Evenings. Afterwards, I doubt you will choose to go anywhere else for your sixth form education!

INDEPENDENCE

BECOMING MORE INDEPENDENT

Sixth form college is an important stepping stone. Barton Peveril is committed to helping you make the most of your journey, from the highly structured and managed world of school to the much greater independence of university and employment. It’s a crucial transition for you – and a big change for parents too!

A large sixth form college with over 3400 students aged 16-18

11


At Barton Peveril, teachers will not simply tell you what you need to know; they will expect you to read around your subject and bring ideas to share in class. Pre-work will form an important part of your personal learning plan, ensuring that you are well-prepared for each lesson and able to gain the most from your teachers’ expertise. There will, of course, be homework, coursework and assignments too.

Managing your time Becoming more independent means taking a much more mature approach to studying. You will need to develop the research skills that enable you to find things out for yourself and ask for help when you don’t understand something. You will be studying for as many hours outside of timetabled lessons as you will in the classroom. Private study periods mean you can get much of your work completed in College if you use your time wisely and stick to an agreed plan.

INDEPENDENCE

Preparing for lessons

Life skills for education and work As well as the knowledge you’ll pick up on your courses, you’ll also leave college with a range of life lessons and essential skills that are transferable to any further study or workplace. These include effective oral and written communication, accessing and analysing information, essay writing, research and presentation skills and exam techniques.

Taking responsibility for your progress Joining our community means making a commitment to hard work and becoming knowledgeable about your chosen subjects. College studies should be at the centre of your life for the next two years. A well-rounded sixth form education is the key that will unlock future opportunities in both education and work.

Encouragement and feedback Materials for study success We strongly recommend investing in a laptop, tablet or hand-held device to provide quick and easy access to a variety of online resources via our free campus-wide WiFi network. This will enable you to get a great deal of work completed during the college day.

Making learning your priority At Barton Peveril we set the bar high and provide bespoke guidance to ensure that you achieve your potential. Learning is our priority and you’ll need to make it yours too. We’ll help you set realistic but challenging targets for your future performance and help you develop independent learning skills.

Updates from your progress reviews and teacher feedback will be available to you and your parents via the College intranet so that you’ll always know how well you are doing in each subject. Helping you make well-informed judgements about the grades you are capable of achieving is all part of keeping an eye on the bigger picture: an ambitious and successful future.

TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT Apprenticeships

Work experience

If you are looking to progress on to an apprenticeship or other training route, we can help you by identifying possible employers, supporting you with the application process, assisting with online assessments and offering interview practice.

Our work experience programme benefits from excellent links with renowned employers who provide challenging and constructive placement opportunities. Every student has a dedicated work experience week in second year.

Together, we will work on skills that will give you the best chances of success at job interviews and selection panels for apprenticeships and competitive sponsored degrees.

Employability Throughout the year there are visits from a range of local employers. Some of these are industry insight days with a variety of speakers. Others see employers supporting your academic study by linking theory and practice. There are workshops on CV building, applications and networking with employers –all designed to help you reach your full potential. Employability Week gives you an opportunity to find out about future employment, careers, training and apprenticeship opportunities. More than 70 local employers and organisations engaged with these events last year.

Some students will undertake placements regularly across the year (e.g. three hours per week). All students are strongly encouraged to secure placements during their time at College and some of you will have access to subject-specific placements including Conservation, Health and Teaching and Early Years.

Working while you study Many students will undertake part-time work whilst at college and our careers team will support you in sourcing and successfully gaining employment. We recognise the skills this can develop but ask that you do not exceed on average 12 hours of paid work per week as this can affect your performance in your studies. We will help you to identify the skills you have gained during this work that are relevant to your longer-term career aspirations.

Volunteering We encourage all students to contribute something back to the local community, through voluntary work and charitable fundraising. Our conservation volunteers work in collaboration with local organisations to provide practical support to projects. Universities and employers view volunteering as an excellent addition to applications.
