Expectations of Students
BYC is a sort of partnership between students, teaching staff, pastoral advisors and Heads of Year that is not possible lower down the school. Your status when you join the BYC will bring you certain privileges. You will have far greater freedom than you have had before, and far more time away from formal tuition. We recognise your status by providing you with common rooms for relaxation along with several private study areas in both schools. This new freedom, however, demands greater responsibility.
For example you must seek to find the correct balance between work, socialising and studying during your limited non tutor-contact time.
In order to be successful you will need self-discipline and be able to set yourself targets. You will be encouraged to take responsibility for yourself, work with some degree of independence develop ideas and attitudes.
Returning to the sixth form also brings with it certain responsibilities. As a member of the consortium you are perceived as a role model for the rest of the school you are studying at and you should strive to present a suitable image.
You will be expected to attend lessons punctually, attendance at lessons will be monitored and you are required to provide notes to explain any absences, do homework/coursework on time, and seek advice when you have difficulties.
Your choices may mean that you will have to travel between Bryn Celynnog and Y Pant, this transport will be provided. You will be expected to meet the departure times punctually and respect the school you are visiting.
