You are the leaders of this community. Every student at Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form is a future leader. We place high value on developing these skills throughout your time with us. Whether you are on a Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme activity, taking part in the Sixth Form Challenge event, whether you are enjoying work experience with business and industry leaders or playing a lead role in student politics, we encourage all our students to see the development of the skills needed to prepare for positions of responsibility and authority as an integral part of your time in our Sixth Form.

Our Academic Sixth Form tutoring and House Systems are designed to develop these roles. Universities and employers will be looking for recruits who have shown their skills in leading and developing other people. This can involve being Head Boy or Head Girl or becoming a Senior Student attached to the leadership of each House but it can also involve the support and mentoring that you might give to younger students. Being a student at Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form is being a member of a wider community: your community!

Your time here will be rewarding. It will be rewarding intellectually, it will be rewarding academically, but life at Thomas Gainsborough Sixth Form is not just about what happens in the classroom.
