My name is Helen Fitzwilliam and I am delighted to be working as the pastoral lead for years 12 and 13.
My role is to ensure that each student makes the best possible progress through supporting each individual through their time in the Sixth Form. Together with the form tutors, I support students with pastoral needs and liaise with home. We seek to provide guidance on balancing the demands of a busy Sixth Form life and through the process of university and apprenticeship applications. I also work alongside the academy’s careers adviser to encourage students to explore the opportunities available to them and in facilitating relevant work experience.

Year 12 Employability sessions
Working with local and national employers we have put together employability sessions to help our students develop key skills that they will need for the world of work and to help them be successful in the future.
So far, students had two sessions:
- Interview preparation – which included work etiquette
- Labour Market Information (LMI) – students received up to date information on the seven up and coming sectors in Lancashire.
In April, all students will have a mock interview with a real employer; this will also include detailed feedback.
Careers advice and Guidance
The Sixth Form have access to our Careers Advice Coordinator, Mrs Alicia Louth, who is on hand to assist with CV writing, applications, facilitating relevant work experience, volunteering opportunities and general work related enquiries.
