Meet the Head & Students
Head of Sixth Form
Andy Giles shares his thoughts on his input on these two important years of a young person’s education...
"I hope the students see me as approachable, supportive and fair; someone who enjoys their job and wants the best for each of them."
How do you prepare students for the rigours of A Levels and beyond?
We give our students the tools to have a positive mindset; our motto is ‘aim high, believe in yourself and make a difference’ and we stand by that all the way. By developing leadership qualities and being team players the students learn about themselves and how to be effective in the real world. Our students leave as well rounded, educated and confident young adults', prepared for a future in a fast and changing world.
What makes the Sixth Form at Claires Court different?
Our students say it is the focused individual support they receive alongside the tailored education. Young adults perform best when they are valued and happy. We want the students to have the most enjoyable, memorable and successful two years of their life so far and support them at each stage whatever challenges they may face.
How do you make students feel valued?
Their voice is important, we value their input into making our Sixth Form the best it can be. Students are part of the interview process when we recruit staff and as well as an open office door, we offer plenty of opportunities for formal feedback throughout a student's time in the Sixth Form. Students also carry out learning conversations and critique and feedback on teaching.
