The Sixth Form Vision We want a school that: • is truly student-centred • has the highest expectations of its students • places learning and teaching at its heart • celebrates the unique talents of all its students • has an atmosphere of mutual support • looks to the future without forgetting to enjoy the experiences of today We are a school which believes: • taking risks is essential to improve teaching and learning • that assessment should be formative with supportive feedback to allow students to progress • that students learn best when they feel safe, happy and content • that students should understand and take responsibility for their own learning • hard-work and effort make a significant contribution to success • success breeds success “Lady Lumley’s Sixth Form is a vibrant community which has a well-established record of excellent examination results enabling students to progress to university and successful careers. We work hard to support our students in achieving their goals and we expect our students to work hard in return.” James Ambrose, Head of Sixth Form
