University is a time of change and growth for students; a crucial yet exciting stage in their evolution where they must put critical thinking into action and develop the skills necessary to thrive in the working world.
Thankfully, with our philosophy of Amazing Learning, students are equipped with a mindset that enables them to adapt successfully to university life. Amazing Learning is about going beyond perceived limitations and making progress by embracing good struggle. With this ingrained knowledge of the benefits of persistence and positivity, we are proud to say that 100% of our Sixth Form students in the year 2020 were successful in their university application.
Smaller Classes, Dedicated Support
In Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park, 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
We believe that Sixth Form is the right time to entrust students with more responsibility regarding their academic and personal choices, as they move towards true independence when at university.
With the A Level syllabus, students are given the freedom to opt for subjects which they genuinely enjoy and can foresee a career in, and our teachers are on hand to help them through the selection process. The small and more intimate nature of Sixth Form also means that students can develop stronger, more adult relationships with their classmates and teachers, aiding the enhancement of interpersonal skills that will be crucial in their adult life to come.
In total, this approach moves students away from the more top-down approach of earlier Key Stages and helps to mould a well-rounded individual who can thrive both academically and socially when in university.
Amazing Learning, For Life
Our students understand that the only true barrier in life is our mind, and go out into the world believing that they can achieve anything with the right attitude coupled with a lot of determination and perseverance.
In implementing the Amazing Learning philosophy, they are exposed to repeated experiences that hardwire getting better through good struggle. They learn that good things in life are not always easily accessible, but that the reward when these goals are accomplished far outweighs the difficulty in getting there. Nowhere is this philosophy more valuable than in Sixth Form, where independent, self-motivated enquiry can lead to outstanding results, and put in place a valuable lifelong habit.
