Every student will be supported by their tutor throughout the sixth form – your tutor is the first person you should go to if there are any issues that are causing you anxiety or preventing you from learning. Over the course of the year, your tutor is someone you should seek to form a good relationship with; they will be able to support you in a variety of ways and will make time to work through any difficulties with you.
