Welcome to year 12 at Barnhill Community High School. My name is Mr Shepherd and I am the Head of year 12. The start of 6th form is an exciting but challenging aspect of a young person’s life as students transition to meet the many demands of post -16 life. In order to be successful, students will need to ensure that they are organised. The expectation is that students will work hard during the school day, including during private study sessions, so that they add value to them-selves. The way that students present and conduct themselves around the building should be of the highest standard. Year 12 students are now towards to the pinnacle of their education, which is something that should be reflected with professional dress, a passion for knowledge and an outstanding attitude to learning. We have a very experienced and supportive 6th form key stage team, who will ensure that all year 12 students are given the best opportunity to succeed.
