Don’t underestimate the impact your kindness can have on someone. From sending a text to a friend to let them know how you appreciate them, to saying ‘have a nice day’ to a shop assistant, you could give someone the little boost they need.

Personal Development and Welfare

Alongside the academic achievement of any Sixth Form student within the academy, we recognise that it is necessary to develop a student’s talents and aptitudes, so that all students can fulfil their potential.

A sense of pride in belonging to HCACP and an understanding of the importance that their individual contributions can make to the academy as a whole, will determine their success at HCACP.

Students are offered a range of opportunities to develop the confidence and discipline needed so that all students, especially those from disadvantaged and economically deprived backgrounds, are prepared for tertiary education and the world of work.

Whilst recognising that the idiosyncrasies and traits that give individuals their character are fundamental to a healthy sense of self, students are taught the importance of adopting appropriate registers as a way to negotiate social and professional interactions in both familiar and unfamiliar contexts.


Sense of belonging

To facilitate the sense of belonging, students belong to a tutor group which, in turn, is assigned to a faculty mirroring the lower school faculties of Arts, Communications, Maths and Commerce, and Science and PE.

First and foremost, students belong to their particular year group (Year 12 or Year 13) and there are bi-weekly assemblies for each year. The Sixth Form Leadership team also has dedicated Faculty and Pastoral Coordinators for each year group who support the students, tutors and subject teachers.

Opportunities for student leadership and council are encouraged through our prefect system. The student prefects are led by the Head and Deputy Head students and play a pivotal role across the academy.

All students are encouraged to contribute to the wider school community, including participating in events, assemblies and enrichment activities and it is expected that there are high levels of participation in community projects across the academy.

Safeguarding and raising awareness of safeguarding concerns are a strength throughout the academy and the safeguarding provision for Sixth Form students reflects the challenges which may arise for young people in our local context.

The Sixth Form tutor time programme is consistently delivered by all tutors and is overseen by the Sixth Form Pastoral Coordinators. The pastoral programme delivers SMSC, PSHE and safeguarding content and will be a platform for young people to discuss concerns and ideas in a safe and supportive environment. We are an inclusive school and prejudice and intolerance in all forms have no part to play in our academy.
