Running a Sixth Form Boarding House
Date: April 24, 2018
Staff currently running, or about to take over, a 6th Form House that wish to review current practice or develop their provision to better reflect the needs of this quite special community.
Why you should attend?
An increasingly common feature in our schools is the development of a new 6th or Upper 6th Boarding House – a clear reflection of the demand for senior boarding from both UK and international students. Such Houses have very different dynamics to the more traditional vertical arrangements and as such the organisaiton and management aspects need to be tailored specially to suit. This workshop will consider the key factors which influence the culture, operation and dynamics and provide an opportunity to share best practice across such critical elements as safeguarding, wellbeing, leadership and organisation.
