As a learner at Dudley Sixth you are on the brink of adulthood and so our teaching staff will treat you accordingly, encouraging you to be independent and express your thoughts and ideas as an individual.
All learners, however, may need extra support from time to time. You may be feeling vulnerable because of friendship, relationship or family problems, or perhaps you are struggling to cope with your homework.
