Open Days and School Dates
Girls' Sixth Form Virtual Open Evening
Prospective students and their parents are invited to visit the school on our virtual open evening which will take place via Zoom and will be held on:
Thursday 19 November, 2020 at 6.00pm
After a welcome talk from Headmistress Miss Hincks and Head of Sixth Form Mrs Winder, you will have a chance to choose up to six virtual departmental visits. At 8.00pm, the evening will conclude with a 'How to Apply' session with the Headmistress and Head of Sixth Form. There will also be a chance to arrange a personal family tour too on a different occasion. In the first instance, you should register to attend the evening by emailing Mrs Julie Holland at email@example.com or by calling her on 01204 840201. Mrs Holland will also be able to answer any questions and send you a prospectus and application form.
The Application Process
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.
