Sixth Form

Habits of Learning

There are 5 learning habits that we focus on to help you to develop and progress:


Resilience: Dealing with difficult situations, both mental and physical, in a positive way.


Reasoning: Being careful, methodical and logical. Using our minds to work it out.


Reflecting: Learn from your mistakes and reflect on your success. Think about your work and actions and how they help or impede you and others.


Collaborating: Work together as a team. Listen to others ideas and learn to empathise- understand their point of view.


Questioning: Have a lively, enquiring mind and ask good questions. Be prepared to challenge your own ideas.


There are displays in the Sixth Form quiet area/entrance to help you to remember what the habits are and a quick reference poster is on every white board in all Sixth Form classrooms. You can also view them by clicking here: Learning Habits

What do you need to do to make your work better?
