When going to sixth form you all have an expectation of what you want to gain from the rooms allocated just for sixth formers.

We're doing a project and are asking what do you expect?
A place to relax?
An independent study area?
Socialisation area?
Other? please state............

And what do you want to be in these rooms..
Common room?
Computer room?
Library?

It's been a while since you posted and nobody has replied so I will bump this thread for you.

I can give my opinion if you like
I like a study area to have places for talking/group work and then a quiet area too. So a relaxing area but also one for working.

Common room - area to relax and talk with friends so sofas etc, maybe a few desks to work on
Computer room - Computers haha, and desks
Library - plenty of resources, some computers, desks

Common room - somewhere to relax and chat with friends. A pool table would be nice

Computer room - a room with computers... maybe some core textbooks as well in there and a rule for only allowing whispering - no idea how that would be enforced though.

Kitchenette - I did not expect one but my old 6th form did and it was basically a tea/ coffee factory. If you walked in you were going to make a cup of something for someone

We have 8 study areas. One is a mandatory quiet and the rest you can talk but have to keep it down. So nice balance between the two. All the rooms have at least 30+ computers and a library for each.

Mine has separate computer rooms, a quiet common room for study and a social common room with a mini cafeteria, where you can do study if you want but it can be noisy! We also have kitchenettes which are very popular.

my school has a youth centre which is our common room and i think it is great as everything is there, sixth form staffs offices are there, and we have a kitchen we can use. then we have a study room which contains computers and work desks and a support desk where a dedicated member of staff an help us with work, uni applications etc. the only thing we don't have is a quiet area to just sit and relax, the common room is too noisy for that

SILENT STUDY ROOM - I expect enough computers for everyone (there isn't), the computers to be fast enough (from friday to yesterday the network was down and they nearly lost a week worth of work), for it to be clean and tidy (once water seeped through one side and the carpet under the table was all muddy - guess who put her bag there!).


TIC-TAC ROOM is named for the orange and green chairs and tables, many of which wobble. It was originally a common room but this year they decided that 18 year olds aren't responsible enough to work in their 3-5 silent study hours and frees and we also have 3-4 mandatory reading hours where you aren't allowed anything but a notebook and work, if you use a computer sometimes it's ok,
othertimes they go crazy.

We don't have a common room but we all expect one, at the minute they're trying to make one. It currently consists of about 30 upturned desks and some wallpaper on the wall. And we don't have a kitchen or spare room.
Yay.
