Open Evening & Induction Day

Sixth Form Open Evening

We look forward to welcoming Year 11 students and their families to our Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 1 November. Join us and discover the wide range of choices and opportunities on offer at our specialist Sixth Form Centre.

Visitors are invited to chat with current Sixth Form students, meet with staff and listen to departmental presentations about the different 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. A presentation from Assistant Headteacher Post-16, Mr Steve Baker will take place at 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

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 - To be confirmed (either late June or early July 2019)

All students who have applied to Sixth Form must attend. Students meet with their new tutor at 8.30am, and are then given a timetable for the day with their subject choices. They may also have the opportunity to try other subjects on the day. Students will get a course outline and summer tasks will be set in each subject in preparation for the start of Sixth Form study in September.
