Open Evening & Induction Day

Sixth Form Open Evening: Wednesday 6 November 2019

Students and their families are invited to join us for an interactive tour of our specialist Sixth Form Centre from 5:00 - 8:00pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to chat with current Sixth Form students and listen to student-led subject presentations, to meet with staff and learn about the wide range of courses available, discovering all we do to support and enable students to progress towards achieving their future ambitions and destinations including the most prestigious academic and creative institutions. Presentations from Assistant Headteacher Post-16, Mr Steve Baker and Heads of Years 12 and 13 take place in the Main Hall.

The next opportunity for students to visit our specialist Sixth Form Centre and discover the wide range of choices and opportunities on offer will be during the summer term, at our Sixth Form Induction Day - please refer to the section below for further information.

We are immensely proud that we retain a high proportion of our Sixth Form students from Beacon Academy as well as recruiting students from other local and international schools.

“Students really enjoy their studies and appreciate the more adult environment of the sixth-form study centre. Students feel safe and well looked after and conduct themselves maturely.”

“Careers advice and guidance are effective because this support is independently delivered one-to-one and forms part of students’ study programmes. Students are given high levels of support in deciding on their next steps, including with personal statements for higher education places.”

Sixth Form Induction Day

Our annual Sixth Form Induction Day for Year 11 students takes place during the summer term at our Sixth Form Centre on Green Lane. All students who have applied to Sixth Form must attend. Students meet with their new tutor and attend an assembly at 8:30am. Each student will receive a personalised timetable for the day and will attend one lesson in each subject they have chosen, plus a Study Hall period. They may also have the opportunity to try other subjects on the day. Students will get a course outline and summer tasks are set in each subject in preparation for the start of Sixth Form study in September.

We are immensely grateful to Michael Brooker Estate Agents and DemonSkinz for their generous support of our open events.
