What are the schools hours?
Lessons start at 8.50am and the day ends at 3.20pm. There are various activities available both before and after school too.
What is the dress code?
We describe our code as “smart casual”. Sixth Formers are seen as adults in our community, and so they like to look smart. Our main focus is learning and success, so we don’t want to be too casual!
I haven’t been a student at St Peter’s – will I fit in?
We welcome students from over 26 schools, from across Dorset and beyond. We will make every effort to help you to settle in quickly. A sense of community is just one of our many strengths, and our Sixth Form is an excellent opportunity for you to meet students from across Bournemouth and Poole.
How will I be supported?
You will have a personal tutor, and an academic coach to support you every step of the way. A team of full-time specialist teachers are here to help you to fulfil your potential. Our advisors will help you to plan your future path in life.
Isn’t it a Catholic school?
Yes, we are proud of our Christian values, and we gladly welcome students from
all backgrounds and faiths into our Sixth Form. All we ask is that you want to play a part in our Sixth Form community.
Will I receive financial assistance?
Young people who need some financial support to help them stay in education or training after 16 can apply to us for financial support. Students facing financial difficulties may also be able to claim support to help with costs of transport, food, equipment or other course-related costs. To receive support you must apply before the middle of September of each academic year. Application packs are available from the Sixth Form Office.Please apply directly to St Peter’s Sixth Form. In most cases we decide on the amount you could receive, when it is paid and what conditions are attached. For advice please contact Miss Camilleri in the Sixth Form Centre or via firstname.lastname@example.org
