The School Day and Support
The School Day
Mercia Collegiate Sixth Form will have a longer school day, with more timetabled lessons, seminars and independent study sessions than other A Level providers. As a result, scholars will have both a deeper and broader understanding of their courses of study and to gain powerful knowledge. They will be ready for the rigour of a world-leading university education.
School will be open from 07:30, with the day formally commencing at 08:20. The days ends at 17:00, with a 15:45 finish on Fridays. Over the course of the day, scholars will have lessons in each of their A Levels, as well as timetabled independent or collaborative study. Additionally, scholars will be expected to take full advantage of seminars, lectures and talks, all of which will impart knowledge well beyond the traditional curriculum.
Our passionate staff want to influence beyond just the classroom and we hope our scholars want to learn outside the classroom also. Our day allows for this.
In any high performing organisation with talented and ambitious individuals, there will inevitably be some pressure to succeed and achieve. All scholars will be supported with the following initiatives:
- A dedicated Mastery Tutor who supports pupils with mindset, organisation and mental/physical well-being
- A strong sports and leisure culture, with an on-site gym and organised fixtures against other Sixth Forms
- Clubs and Societies – Robotics Society, Art Society and Musical Theatre Society to name a few
- Trips and visits – scholars will regularly have the opportunity to visit galleries, museums and theatres locally and nationally. All pupils will attend a residential visit to an Elite University
Mercia Collegiate Sixth Form scholars will be a vital part of the Mercia family. They will be ambassadors for the school and their subjects.
