Hendon School Sixth Forms Vision
One of our key aims is to make sure that all students within Hendon aspire to join our 6th Form. Whilst we have very high academic standards, we are also aware of the fact that as an inclusive school that we need to develop a flexible curriculum model.
We encourage students to adopt a dynamic and aspirational approach towards learning. The 6th Form contract is of great significance and it defines our shared ethos and forms an agreement about the values and priorities of the 6th Form as well as our expectations of each student who is a member of our 6th Form.
Although we recognise the growing autonomy of our 6th Form students, we also realise from many years of experience that there is a direct link between attendance, punctuality and academic performance. For this reason, we have very high standards in relation to behaviour and attitudes towards learning. We expect students to view themselves as young adults and to take increased responsibility for communicating effectively with our 6th Form teachers.
We recognise that 6th Form leadership is a crucial role in the school, enabling change and development and in voicing student opinion. We want to give every student in the 6th Form every opportunity to make a worthwhile contribution to the community.
Students are encouraged to develop independence whilst continuing to be supported by high quality teaching, excellent mentoring and a dedicated pastoral team. As well as a culture of high achievement, we aim to foster an ethos of mutual support, communication and respect.
Students are able to chose from a wide variety of courses to suit their needs. They also benefit from numerous extra-curricular activities of both an educational and social nature.
Our ethos and values are the things that make our 6th Form distinctive.
