LSFC Student Support

At Lordswood Sixth Form Centre we are committed to supporting our students throughout their time us and beyond.  We have various support programmes in place that address our students’ academic and personal needs.

Review Tutor
Each student will be allocated a review group and review tutor.  The review tutor will have regular one-to-one review meetings with their students to monitor their progress and offer support.

Academic Support
Students are taught by experienced, well-qualified staff.  Subject teachers and Lead Professionals will track academic progress and provide one-to-one support and any appropriate intervention to ensure students achieve their academic potential.

Wellbeing Support
Ms Richards, our Post-16 Student Support Co-ordinator is on hand to offer well-being support to our students. Appointments can be booked to see the school nurse and, if required, referrals can be made to outside agencies for further personal and family support.

Financial Support

Discretionary and vulnerable bursaries are available for eligible students.  These bursaries help students with education-related costs and is money that can be used to pay for things like:

  • clothing, books and other equipment for their course
  • transport and lunch on days you study or train

Bursary application forms are available from the sixth form office.
