Guidance and Support

At The Spires College we pride ourselves on knowing each and every one of our students and our Sixth Form is no different.

We understand the importance of building on students’ prior learning and experience, as well as pointing them towards new opportunities and guiding them in new directions. We offer a transition programme from Key Stage 4 to Key Stage 5. Whether you join us from The Spires College, from another school or from another country, you will receive one-to-one advice and support to help you to choose courses that are right for you. We want our students to love learning with us and to lay the foundations for future success.

Students joining our college enter a caring community within which high levels of personal support and challenging learning combine to create success.

  • Every student joins a tutor group: personalised tutorial support is pivotal in ensuring that every student’s academic success and personal well-being are cared for.
  • Our experienced tutors are expertly placed to offer guidance when you join The Spires College Sixth Form, to keep you on track while you are here, and to advise you on how to make the most of your future beyond Sixth Form.
  • Our specialist Sixth Form Team – comprising a Vice Principal, Director of Sixth Form and an Assistant Head of Sixth Form – make sure that you receive the highest levels of guidance and support to get you to where you want to be and to be happy and healthy during your time in the Sixth Form.   Your personal development is as important to us as your academic achievement; your future is as important to us as your present.
