We Believe in Positive Encouragement
St. Dominic’s sixth form prides itself on positive encouragement, where the Emotional Quotient is as important as the Intelligence Quotient. We believe they are linked, as a happy student learns well.
At St Dominic’s we arrange transition days, transition trips and induction days to make sure that your child settles in happily to the sixth from.
The sixth form will lead in drawing up policies such as the anti bullying policy which includes cyber bullying. They become school prefects and are enthusiastic about raising funds for charity. The students are encouraged to take ownership of their work, and their activities.
They will be assigned a personal mentor who will assist them in all aspects of their studies. This will include weekly sessions to assess progress within lessons. This time will also be used to look at career advice, personal statements and UCAS applications. This ensure that the students are on the right course at the correct university for their future career. They will also have a general sixth form tutor who will be an initial reference and contact point. Any qualms within the subjects can be channelled through the form tutor or the mentor. The next stage is the Head of Sixth. They will have overall responsibility for the academic and social welfare of each child. It is a community, it is a family, and the girls as they progress become very aware of belonging at St. Dominic’s Brewood.
There is truly a development of spirit here with emphasis on good deeds, moral fibre and developing an understanding of the wider world.
St. Dominic’s Brewood has a sound Christian foundation and yet is open to children of all faiths or no faith. Through discussion and forum, Form time, pupils are encouraged to discuss moral issues, they are taught truth, and responsible behaviour. We have an ethos that is respectful, maintains a high standard of behaviour, and of course has a strong work ethic. They are encouraged to consider others, to love your neighbour as yourself, to be kind to one another and whatever they do, to do it cheerfully.
