Student Support and Guidance


At LBTS6, we ensure students are provided with excellent pastoral support and academic guidance. We monitor students’ progress through the work our tutors do as well as contact with subject teachers. Students at LBTS6 are expected to spend at least 15 hours per week to their studies, in addition to their time spent in lessons.  We recognise the rigour and the significant demands of A-levels, BTEC courses and T-Levels and we recommend that students have no more than 12 HOURS of paid employment. Parental engagement is important to us and we will regularly communicate the students’ progress to ensure we can work together to support our 


Students express how well prepared they feel when making the right choices after sixth-form. The preparation for life after LBTS6 begins in Year 12 as we believe this is the right time to begin building strong foundations for the future. Students are exposed to university workshops as well as apprenticeship workshops in Year 12. They also have ample opportunities to visit workplaces and explore different industries so that they are able to make the best decisions for their future. These preparations help students become aware of university and employer expectations.

Towards the end of Year 12 all of our students benefit from our visits to  universities and Higher Education Fair where they hear from apprenticeship providers, and participate in a number of workshops including  ‘How to write the personal statement’, ‘interview techniques’ and ‘How to apply for Apprenticeships’.  

Students at LBTS6 are expected to take part in one week of work experience during the Summer term. This opportunity gives students the chance to demonstrate and develop transferable skills suitable for university and the world. All of our students have access to career advice and support from our Careers Advisor- and all  students applying for university will receive specialist guidance from our UCAS Coordinator - Miss Yomi
