Going to university is a whole new challenge for students. This is when they need to apply what they have learned throughout their childhood to real world situations, while displaying a maturity in decision making and problem solving that marks them as adults ready for the challenges of the wider world.
Smaller Classes, Dedicated Support
In Tenby Schools Ipoh, Sixth Form students receive the personal guidance and support they need to perform to their full potential in their university applications.
In addition to a dedicated Head of Sixth Form, who handles all matters pertaining to this stage of education, and a University and Careers guidance counsellor who assists with university applications and any personal issues encountered by the students, small class sizes ensure that teachers are able to mentor students on a one-on-one basis, working through any stumbling blocks they may face while providing further reading and guidance to those who excel.
We also have a detailed and thorough preparation process for students applying to universities across the globe and in Malaysia. This includes visiting universities and making sure personal statements and applications provide our students with the best chance of attending their chosen institution.
Developing The Person, Not Just The Student
The difference between the Sixth Form and other stages of schooling is that this is the phase where students are entrusted with greater responsibilities in making academic and personal choices that can profoundly impact their university and professional tenure.
Students have the freedom of choice in the A Level syllabus to opt for subjects in line with their ambitions and our teachers are on hand to help them through the selection process. The smaller nature of the Sixth Form classes also helps students develop mature relationships with their classmates and teachers which, in turn, enhances their interpersonal skills.
In short, this approach moves students away from the top-down method of earlier stages and helps mould a well-rounded individual, conditioned to thrive both academically and socially when in university.
Amazing Learning, For Life
Confidence, determination and character are qualities that can prove to be the difference between success and failure. Our Amazing Learning philosophy aims to instil these qualities and expose our students to repeated experiences that hardwire getting better through good struggle.
They learn that nothing will be handed to them on a silver platter. It all comes down to their enthusiasm and perseverance to accomplish their goals and reap the rewards. Nowhere is this philosophy more valuable than in Sixth Form, where independence and self-motivation can lead to outstanding results, and put in place invaluable lifelong habits.
