Meet the Head & Students

Head of Sixth Form

Gary Hope

Our aim is to help students achieve academically and personally, and prepare well for the next stage in their life, whether that is at university, on an apprenticeship or in the workplace.

We are excited about the prospect of helping them to achieve their dreams and goals for the future. Our school values are integrated through our curriculum and enrichment offer we build upon this with our credo “Aim High, Believe in Yourself, Make a Difference”.

How do you prepare students for the rigours of SIXTH FORM STUDY and beyond?

We engender a sense of value and worth in each student, and encourage optimum levels of self-belief. From this position of strength, with our continued support, each individual can then advance their personal and academic development and enjoy the success they are capable of.

What makes the Sixth Form at Claires Court different?

Each student is valued as an individual and enjoys a bespoke education in our Sixth Form. Their achievements, whether academic or otherwise, are recognised and celebrated.  Our students subscribe to our maxim, ‘aim high, believe in yourself and make a difference’, and become confident, competent and well-rounded young people during their time at Claires Court.

How do think your students would describe you?

Friendly, supportive, kind, encouraging, thoughtful, caring, enthusiastic, focused.

What do you want to bring to the division?

Being a Head of Sixth Form is an immense privilege and with it comes the opportunity to instil the values of respect, responsibility, loyalty and integrity which are fundamental to our ethos.  My role is to ensure our teaching faculty are supported in their goal to encourage curiosity, independence and resilience in the students they nurture and to establish a positive, inclusive and affirming environment for students to prosper in.
