Open Days and School Dates

Boys' Virtual Sixth Form Open Evening

Each year the vast majority of our Y11 students progress into our Sixth Form and are joined by external applicants from across the region. 

This year we will hold a special Sixth Form Open Evening to provide both current and prospective students with a stimulating and interesting insight into life in our Sixth Form. This will take place in November 2021.  

Current students will have the opportunity to hear a live presentation from the Headmaster, Mr Philip Britton and Mr Jack Williams, the Head of Sixth Form, together with the chance to choose and engage with up to six subject presentations from our various Heads of Department. 

External candidates will be given a live introduction from Dr Fraser Mullins, Deputy Head of the School and will have an opportunity to join a drop-in Q&A session with Mr Jack Williams, Head of Sixth Form, which runs from 7.00pm-8.00pm. They too will be able to choose to virtually visit up to six subject areas.

For external students, this evening represents the first part of their admissions process, usually followed by a visit to our Sixth Form to enjoy a bespoke tour with Dr Mullins, and the chance to chat with a current member of the Sixth Form. During the Spring Term, prospective candidates are then invited into school for interviews with the Head and Deputy Head of the Sixth Form, as well as Heads of Department of the A Level subjects they propose to study at A level. 

Whether you are an external candidate or a current member of our school, the Sixth Form is a vibrant, friendly and happy community. It is a place of study which has an enviable track record of academic success, one that encourages the intellectual curiosity and develops the self-confidence of our students, to help them achieve outstanding results and go on to study at some of the most competitive universities, both in the UK and around the world. 

Importantly, through their academic studies in the Sixth Form, students also enjoy participating in the extensive co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities that are on offer in sport, outdoor pursuits, music, drama, the arts and through other clubs, societies and activities. As a result, our Sixth Form students go on to develop the cultural and social capital to be a force for good in the wider world.
