Each JAS Sixth Form student is assigned a tutor group. This small group of students will receive academic and pastoral support in two designated sessions each week. Although students have allocated tutor sessions, they also have direct access to their tutor. All students are able to book meetings with staff through Google Calendar and Google Mail as and when advice and guidance is required.
Tutor groups are ‘vertical’ which means students mix across Year 12 and Year 13, this encourages a community feel across the sixth form and Year 12 students are able to learn from Year 13 students as they prepare their applications and examination schedules.
This is only for students who are completing the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Students are designated a session each week to effectively complete the project. The lessons will vary from teacher-led instruction to independent study, students can also use this time to book a meeting with their EPQ tutor who will offer increased support, instruction and feedback throughout.
