A top Suffolk school has brought in experts to work with its sixth-formers to help their personal growth and achieve better exam results.

Framlingham College has partnered with SixthSense to help students “develop self-awareness to unlock new potential”.

The company works with 16-19 year olds with programmes aimed at supporting learning strategies, emotional growth, and personal development.

The college – which has just opened a £2.7million sixth form centre – trialled SixthSense’s Insights programme in the spring.

Senior deputy head at the college, Susan Wessels, said: “The college is very excited about the relationship that we are building with SixthSense and after a very successful trial of the Insights profiles, we have decided to offer them to all our sixth form and associated staff.

“The students and staff found the Insights profiles hugely beneficial as it has helped them to determine the best ways to approach their learning and teaching, understanding the ways in which they prefer to interact with others and they have used it as a consideration in deciding which higher education programmes would best suit them.

“Overall it’s something that the students and staff can use in all areas of life and has been seen as a fantastic personal development tool.
