At the La Retraite 6, each student is allocated their own personal tutor.
The tutor will support students on their journey to success, whether it be gaining access to a top university, career pathway or degree apprenticeship.
Our Tutor Team have extensive experience of submitting high quality UCAS applications, which result in the majority of student gaining access to their first-choice universities. Each year, we have several students beginning high quality degree apprenticeships in the City of London.
Alongside the personal tutor we have a sixth form study manager who supports the students with the development of independent learning skills. Our Business engagement officer ensures all students experience high quality work experience. We have an independent careers advisor, for those students who are unsure of their career paths and a librarian who can recommend resources for the wide variety of courses we offer at La Retraite 6.
We place great emphasis on the importance of good mental health. In addition to our own learning mentor and school counsellor, we work with the NHS DISCOVER Program. Offering support for students who experience difficulties with stress, anxiety or low mood, the aim of DISCOVER is to build resilience and confidence, to help young people to find new ways to handle their emotional difficulties, through workshops, 1:1 sessions, broadcasts, and a web-based app.
More able students are challenged through the scholarship program, where they work with St Pauls and Westminster private schools. Find out more about our scholarship programmes, here.
