Sigma Sixth Colchester - Prospectus

Support, Care and Guidance Every student will be assigned a Tutor at the beginning of the academic year, who will act as a mentor and will be available to provide you with advice and support whenever you need it. Tutorial time can be used to discuss your progress with your Tutor and request guidance or ask for help with any concerns you may have about your academic studies and well-being. Our dedicated Pastoral Coordinator is also available to provide students with day-to-day pastoral care. Any general suggestions about the way college life could be improved can also be raised with the Student Leadership Team. Our values and ethos of Aspiration, Success and Kindness (ASK) underpin everything we do, both inside and outside the classroom. We want you to have the highest expectations and we aim to nurture a growth mindset and ‘can do’ attitude. We also respect and celebrate difference, instilling an ethos of acceptance and understanding for everyone in our college community and in the wider world. The college has a proud tradition of raising money and awareness for charity and supporting the local community. “It’s like being part of a big family. Everyone basically looks out for each other. There’s a positive, supportive atmosphere, and you know there’ll always be someone there to help if you need it...” “Careers advice and guidance are strong features of the provision” OFSTED
