  Banbury Campus Sixth Form Hub Schools

All students in the sixth form opt to have Banbury Academy or Space School, Banbury as their sixth form ‘hub’. Their hub is where they will be registered and complete independent study. The hub school is also responsible for pastoral support of its students.

All sixth form students are members of a mentor group in their hub school and are allocated a mentor who oversees their day to day pastoral and academic needs.

The progress of students in both hub schools is overseen by the Heads of Post 16, Banbury Campus Sixth Form.
