Form Group & Tutorials

All students at Sir Isaac Newton East belong to a form. You’ll find that the students in your form follow the same subjects as you and will be in some of your classes too. This means that you will build good friends and strong support networks in and out of your lessons.

As part of form time, you will also have a regular one-to-one with your tutor giving you a chance to talk about how you are getting on, your attendance and any concerns you may have.

Each week you will have a one-hour tutorial with a series of members of staff and this is a really valuable part of your education. This tutorial series will consist of learning about study skills, organisation, university and apprenticeship applications.  You'll also cover issues beyond school and we'll equip you with an appreciation for the communities and wider-world in which we live.

At Sir Isaac Newton East Sixth Form you will have the support of a form tutor and will have weekly tutorial lessons which follow a specialised programme.
