At The Helena Romanes Sixth Form we recognise that strong partnerships between students, teachers and the leadership team are the key to learning. We set aspirational targets for our students and to raise standards and expectations to empower them to reach their full potential.
Teaching and Learning
Teaching groups are small and with a higher demand for independent learning outside of the classroom we expect our students to organise and manage their own workloads effectively, liaising directly with their subject teachers as appropriate.
Holistic and Pastoral Support
We have a dedicated tutor team who play a vital role in student progress and development, offering practical and emotional support.
The school has a dedicated Careers Adviser and an excellent up to date careers library. There are opportunities for students to visit the Higher Education Super Fair, as well as a variety of universities. In addition all students in Year 12 have the opportunity to participate in a 1-2 week work experience programme.
We operate in partnership with the school, parents and staff to ensure that there is a continuous support network from the very first to the very last day at The Helena Romanes Sixth Form.
Sixth Form Facilities
We think it’s very important that our Sixth Form students have their own space and own identity. Within the purpose built Sixth Form centre, students have access to dedicated seminar rooms and a Sixth Form café. There is also a designated working area, well-equipped with computer technology to assist students with their studies.
Great Dunmow Leisure centre is within close proximity and offers students a range of sports facilities including fitness suite, squash courts, astro turf and swimming pool.
At The Helena Romanes Sixth Form, students have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of extra and super curricular activities allowing them to broaden their own experience and develop leadership skills. We believe it is vital that the Sixth Form experience equips our young adults for the competitive landscape of university choices and career advancement
Students are also encouraged to participate in: World Challenge expeditions, dramatic productions, charity fundraising and a range of sporting activities and fixtures.
