Pastoral support and guidance is of paramount importance in the Sixth Form in order to bring out the very best in you. We cultivate a friendly, mutually supportive and aspirational environment in which you’re valued as an individual.The Sixth Form is big enough to be vibrant, yet small enough to be intimate – so that we get to know you personally.

We offer structured advice and support to not only maximise achievement, but to develop independence and resilience, as well as promote wellbeing.

Sixth Formers have specific pastoral needs and face a number of challenges and transitions so we provide comprehensive and practical pastoral support that enables you to navigate successfully the potential pressures you might encounter.


Sydenham Sixth Form provides us with a very personal learning environment and therefore good relationships with teachers meaning you feel comfortable asking questions and making mistakes.

The role of your form tutor is important alongside every member of staff working with you to ensure that we meet our responsibility for your health and happiness.

The PSHE programme is relevant and engaging and helps support you through your A Level years, as well as preparing you for life beyond school. The strong community feel of the Sixth Form , alongside robust systems of monitoring and reporting, will help ensure that your time with us is rewarding, successful and positive.

By being true to our school motto, Nyle ye Drede (‘Fear Nothing’), you can follow your chosen pathway beyond Sydenham High with the utmost confidence. And we’ll be with you every step.
