Sixth Forms (UK) - May 1st 2012, 07:18 PM

I'll be leaving school very soon, and going onto sixth form. I've only just decided that it's time I got some help with things, and I've only got around 5 weeks to make the most of it. So, do sixth forms offer counselling services like secondary schools?

Hey Michelle,

Sixth forms in the UK are generally extensions of secondary schools so you can find counselling services there. Colleges would also operate counselling services too

I should mention that some secondary schools have a long waiting list for counselling so if it's something urgent then it might be more helpful to speak to your doctor.

I hope this helped, take care

Most sixth forms, if within a secondary school, offer pastoral care whereby teachers will be on hand to help you with any problems where possible, and if they're unable to help then they may give you guidance on where to go. Colleges on the other hand sometimes have specialist councilors on sight as opposed to teachers that have been on a course to deal with minor issues. Either way, you will be helped however much is possible whether it be by teachers in a sixth form environment or councilors in a college environment.

My sixth form is adjoined to my secondary school, and both offer counselling services.. If requested, it is possible to see the same counsellor as in the secondary schools, but there are two different counsellors. With regards to their being a long waiting list, your mindset at sixth form, your health, and general worries about your school work and class choice are all highly important and your head of sixth form will keep these priorities high, and therefore more often than not, it shouldn't take you too long to get to see somebody x

Things, no matter how bad, will always get better. So smile, 'cause this is life, and life is what you make it.
