Sixth Form Staff
Kate Vowles – Director of Sixth Form
We have a highly ambitious group of students here at Lampton: my role is to ensure that teaching and learning enables students to reach their academic potential, that pastoral guidance supports students in their endeavours and that students are provided with a range of opportunities to prepare for entrance to the most prestigious universities.
Emma Cowing – Deputy Director of Sixth Form
I see my role as a pastoral and academic port of call for every student in the sixth form. The main aim is to make sure that all students, regardless of their personal lives and socio-economic background, are given the opportunities to develop their interpersonal skills, confidence, future prospects and academic strengths to meet the needs of an ever changing environment.
Jovairya Dar and Ismail Rahman - Associate Heads of Year
Sixth form is a crucial time when students begin to prepare themselves for the transition to life after school. Our roles as Associate Heads of Year is to help them continue to develop their character and prepare them with the qualities needed to move towards their next pathway, whether that be further study or otherwise. Together with the tutor team we strive to offer a supportive and engaging environment in which students are able to feel safe and successfully pursue their goals, interests and potential regardless of any dispositions. Students at Lampton Sixth Form will be supported through challenges and be provided with many opportunities to help them confidently enter any field or industry.
Nicky Hunt – Higher Education Coordinator
Our ambition is that all students can access the top universities – and my role is to ensure that students access opportunities like summer schools and masterclasses to help for the highly competitive entrance process.
Form tutors are here to ensure that you use each day to maximise your academic potential and emerge as happy, healthy and active citizens of our wider community. We do this by testing your knowledge of current affairs, reminding you to eat proper lunches, passing on application forms for opportunities that will interest you, telling you jokes, helping you to create coursework-writing schedules, writing your university references and making sure that the first thing you hear here each morning is an energetic and sincere ‘Hello’.
Jan Cooper – PA to 6th Form
Guiding students through our own admissions process, arranging work experience, distributing bursary funds and helping students navigate the UCAS application are central to my role.
Rachel Lane & Sharon Fernandes – Attendance Officers
Developing positive habits of attendance and punctuality are key to success in school and in later life – and we’re here to make sure that students make the most of their potential.
Where students or parents have concerns about wellbeing, we strongly encourage contact with the form tutor or Head of Year.
