Open Days and School Dates
Girls' Sixth Form Open Evening
Prospective students and a parent are invited to visit the school on our Open Evening which usually takes place in November each year.
The evening provides an opportunity for you to listen to talks from our Head of Girls' Division, Mrs Kyle, and Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Gunshon, as well as to meet A level subject teachers and some of our current students. If you have any questions about applying to our Sixth Form, please do not hesitate to contact our Admissions Registrar, Helen Atkinson, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01204 840201.
Once an application has been made, you will receive an invitation to come to an interview day. These interview days usually take place in early March. You will be asked to bring your school reports (including GCSE predictions), record of achievement and Mock Examination results with you. If you are considering Art or Technology as one of your options, you should also bring your portfolio.
Offers will be based on your interview with a member of the School Management Team, an interview with at least two Heads of Department (representing subjects you have said that you would like to take), your performance in an online test (designed to assess your potential) and your school reference. Any offers made at this stage will be provisional until the GCSE results are known.
If you live abroad and are unable to come to an interview in Bolton on these days, we will be happy to arrange an alternative date for you to visit or to arrange for your interview to take place via Skype. If necessary, we will liaise with your current school for you to take the on-line aptitude test under its supervision.
