POST 16 FACILITIES
Thomas Tallis School is a state-of-the-art building, opened in 2012, with amazing social facilities and spaces for Post 16 study.
The Sixth Form Café is a dedicated social space and outside seating area, which offers a range of food and drink with extended opening times. People study there too.
The Internet Café is also available for independent study, principally for students who need a computer; our Recital Room is available for Year 13 students to work silently in; Sixth Form students have their own floor of the Library with the right books for their studies; we have an invigilated Silent Study Area with 100 seats, and also use the Main Auditorium as a study venue.
We believe that having a range of spaces for study each with different features and different levels of oversight mirrors the way in which independent study works in universities.
We also believe that post-16 students should be fully integrated into the life of the whole school community. Hence, post 16 students are taught in the same spaces as all our other students.
