Home School Agreement

Home-School Sixth Form Agreement 2022-2023 : Together We Achieve

Moving into the Sixth Form is an exciting and rewarding part of your educational journey. We aim to provide a broad curriculm, expert teaching and enhanced learning opportunities so that you thrive in our sixth form and in life beyond school. 

The Home-School Agreement – Together We Achieve document is read and signed upon enrolment by all students enrolled into Sackville School Sixth Form. 

The agreement below is a precondition to acceptance into the Sixth Form. 


Students will:  

  • Arrive on time at school.
  • Attend all timetabled lessons, registration and SMSC  periods.
  • Inform the school via the family contact of absences in advance of the lesson. 
  • Have a minimum of 96% attendance. Attendance is rigorously monitored and falling below this level will trigger strategies being put in place. 

Studies and the school day

Students will:

  • Use study periods productively for work and keep up to date with work set; this involves undertaking five hours independent study per week, per subject.
  • Undertake independent learning tasks.
  • Discuss any timetable changes with the Head or Deputy Head of Sixth Form and CTL


Sixth Form Dress Code

Students will follow the sixth form dress code when arriving at school, throughout the school day and when leaving school.

Sixth Form enhanced curriculum LIFE  programme 

All students in years 12/13 will be expected to participate actively in our enhanced curriculum LIFE programme. Examples of enhanced curricular participation may include regular mentoring, working as part of the student leadership team, leading discussions with form groups in years 7-11, helping with transition events, running a KS3 sports club and the organisation of, or participation in, charity events.

Work Experience

Students will understand that work experience is a compulsory part of the sixth form experience. As part of our LIFE programme students are expected to arrange their own work experience for the designated week and complete the relevant documentation.

Phones, social media and technology

Students will:

  • Keep mobile phones and headphones  in their bags during lessons unless use is specifically permitted by a teacher.
  • Follow the school sixth form mobile policy and only use a mobile phone and headphones in a permitted sixth form area.
