Leyton Sixth Form College has a designated person to support students with welfare and support needs.
The College provides a counselling service and students have access to advice on welfare, health and financial issues. We have a wide range of resources available to us and are able to refer students to external agencies if necessary.
Students with additional needs will have regular access to a named teacher from our experienced learning support team who will work with your subject teachers to support you. We have a wide range of expertise and currently support students with mobility issues, sensory impairments, autistic spectrum disorder, general and specific learning difficulties, general health issues and mental health difficulties. All support is negotiated with students and takes full account of your views and preferred ways of learning.
If you meet the criteria set by the Joint Council for Qualifications (JCQ), you may be eligible for a variety of access arrangements for examinations including extra time, a scribe or reader and/or modified papers.
Leyton offers financial support through the Bursary Fund, Learner Support and Hardship Fund for students who qualify. Ask for details at your interview.
