Upper Sixth Year

    At Hurst we pride ourselves on having a unique system of Upper Sixth academic tutoring whereby each student is allocated a subject specialist depending on their desired post-Hurst path, which for most will be a university degree. 

    This enables students to have access to and support from someone who knows the specific subject demands, who can help ensure that UCAS applications are the best they can be and will also be the one teacher students will have most contact with in and outside normal lesson time. 

    It is not unusual for our Upper Sixth students to see their Upper Sixth tutors on a daily basis, to discuss subject specific matter for A-levels but also to push students beyond the syllabus to deepen and widen their knowledge base. This ensures that our students develop into true subject specialists, which is a sure fire recipe for A-level success.
