Sixth Form Funding Statement

Sixth Form Funding Statement

At St Nicholas Catholic High School, the 16 to 19 Tuition Fund is being used as follows:

The fund will primarily be used to provide small group tuition for sixth form students who have not yet achieved a grade 4​ or above in English and/or maths.  However, the provision will not be limited to tuition for English and maths, but will also be used to help students on to successful destinations and to support them throughout and following on from the pandemic.

Students with special educational needs and disabilities, who require additional tuition to help them catch up with their studies, will also be supported by this provision.

The tuition sessions will be scheduled in addition to the planned programme of study for the students.  Tuition and additional support may be delivered using a blend of online and in-school delivery.

Tuition support offered will be based on an individual needs’ assessment, examples of some of the Tuition Support we will offer include:

• GCSE re-sit preparation

• CIAG Programme with our careers advisor

• Academic mentoring

• Subject specific support

The impact of these sessions will be monitored based on student performance and progress ​within their chosen courses and ​facilitating their preparation in applying to future destinations, including Higher Education, Employment and Level 3/Level 4 Apprenticeships .
