Miss Lockwood is responsible for the development of every student's growth as a 6th Former. This runs from the day-to-day management of their personal welfare, behaviour and attendance, through to students' academic progress and supporting them in maintaining high standards and focusing on their individual successes. In addition, she is responsible for the Core Learning programme delivered to both years 12 and 13 and ensuring that PSHE is delivered in form time. Actively promoting the wider curricular opportunities, she manages the Sixth Form Leadership Team and Year 12 Subject Ambassadors, whether that be the yearly Prom or improving the fabric of the Sixth Form as a whole and supporting subjects with the recruitment and retention of our younger students through proactively promoting their subjects and supporting in lessons.

Following a successful bid to the @WoodlandTrust, today we planted 420 saplings - all native species to the UK - on the school site. This was a great opportunity to learn about conservation & carbon storage but also as a reminder of how important trees are to our wellbeing https://t.co/8eeUoKLeQD

As part of the ERASMUS project, our sixth form dance students created a video which incorporated Dance and a little bit of Faversham.
We are delighted to share this, as we feel that for a couple of hours work, the students did a great job. https://t.co/XAtQ0GG6um
