Ethos

The ethos we have here at Norton College sixth form is something that we are very passionate about.  Creating the right learning environment for our students is important for each student to achieve and work to the best of their ability in order to access the best opportunities when they leave sixth form.

Therefore we expect all students to take responsibility for their studies, attendance and conduct and to adhere to our dress code, which is formal business dress.

Students are expected to use independent study time effectively, with a mix of supervised and independent study facilities and options available. 

As part of the ethos, we like to celebrate the success and hard work of our students through celebration assemblies and trips.
