Open Evening - 9th October, 5.45pm

Our next Sixth Form Open Evening will be held on Wednesday 9th October 2019 and we welcome any current Year 10s or 11s who may be looking to join us in Sixth Form. This is a chance for you to look around our superb facilities and meet with heads of department to discuss your subject options.  See our video from last year’s event.

Don’t panic if you can’t make it, we believe that every day is an Open Day and we’d be happy to arrange a tour with our Sixth Formers on any agreed day. In the meantime, watch the video that our Sixth Formers made of last year’s Open Evening….

Students will be invited to present their most recent school report, their predicted grades at GCSE (at the end of the Autumn term) and may be asked to have an informal interview with the Headmaster.

NB All students need to be registered with the school in order to proceed with the entrance process.
