Student Wellbeing

Corsham6th Tutors, Pastoral Care & Well-being
At Corsham School, the pastoral care extended throughout the school is very important to us.  Relationships between students and staff are strong and a caring, friendly atmosphere is evident.  Corsham6th Students have a new tutor in Year 12 and stay with this tutor for Year 12 and Year 13. We operate a vertical tutoring system in Corsham6th to enhance the student experience. We aim for our year 13 students to show the year 12 the ropes in terms of study, organisation, UCAS applications and EPQ projects. 

Students meet their tutor twice daily in Year 12 and at least once daily in Year 13.  The tutor gets to know students personally, monitors attendance, gives out notices and letters and encourages involvement in extracurricular activities.  They also provide academic mentoring, as a tutor group and termly on a 1:1 basis, and assistance with planning for the next stage.  


We also have Mindfulness and Yoga sessions which run at lunch time and are hugely popular and have a significant impact on student well-being. These are run by Ms Elmer and Mrs Everson respectively. More Information can be found on the Corsham6th Bulletin
