Open Evening & Induction Day

Sixth Form Open Evening

The next opportunity to visit Beacon Academy Sixth Form will be on Thursday 1 November. The Sixth Form Open Evening consists of an interactive tour of our Sixth Form Centre at Green Lane and an opportunity to meet with teaching and support staff, followed by a presentation from Assistant Headteacher, Mr Steve Baker and Heads of Years 12 and 13.

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.

As a non-selective, non-denominational and non-fee paying school, we are exceptionally proud of the fact that almost a third (31%) of our students’ grades in 2017 were A’s and A stars.

“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.”
