Sixth Form Taster Mornings

We offer interested students the opportunity to be a Sixth Form student for the morning. This is a fantastic chance for students to truly trial the Sixth Form and experience what day-to-day life would be like.

Students will be given a buddy on arrival, who will accompany them to different lessons. These lessons can be organised based on your preferred A Level subject choices. Students will then go to lunch with their buddy, before departing at 1.00 pm. 

These are arranged throughout the year at any time. To enquire, please contact the Admissions Team
