Student Support

At The Island VI Form, we pride ourselves on the quality of our student care. Although this is provided by a range of individuals and agencies, at the centre of it all is the Student Services Team. 

In the relatively short time that you are here, you will be making decisions which will have a huge impact on your career and your future. We aim to maximise your range of choices and provide the guidance and support to help you make the best decisions. 

We have a wide range of skills and knowledge that enables us to provide a flexible and organised service, with students firmly in the centre of everything we do. 

We trust and treat you like an adult and we expect you to show leadership in your education by engaging and communicating with us. 

What services do we offer? 

The Student Services Team are available from Monday – Thursday 8.00 am – 4.30 pm and Friday, 8.00 am – 3.30 pm. Our office is located at the centre of the campus, next to the Library. 

We provide a welcoming, calm environment that respects our diverse community. Our service includes; drop in sessions, an appointment based system for confidential matters, first aid and signposting to external providers. 

We monitor daily attendance and absence through the attendance email system and phone service. If absent, please email: attendance@theislandviform.org.uk or telephone: 01983 522886 (Student Services). 

We offer a comprehensive Student Services Google Hub which is updated regularly to inform our students of the latest news from VI Form and beyond. Please join the Hub with Google Classroom code: wgyeapt

We liaise with the Federation Careers Advisors and book student appointments for guidance meetings. We also offer a wide range of resources for students, including online resources as well as a wealth of university prospectuses. 

We provide assistance and guidance with the UCAS process, working with individuals on their personal statements. This includes a weekly lunchtime workshop in our UCAS Hub.
