Choose a supportive, happy environment for achieving your potential.
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.
To ensure you are performing at your best we have a first class system of support. Your pastoral team will usually be your first point of contact for advice and will set you meaningful targets and challenges to meet. Our learner support team is happy to help at any time too.
We also have qualified counsellors, and other advisers who can give you confidential support on any matter which might be holding you back.
