The evening will start at 5.45pm in the main hall with an introduction to our Sixth Form.

The form will allow you to choose which 5 presentations you would like to attend. We will then send you a personal tour timetable to ensure that you get a meaningful experience without sessions becoming too busy. Please do look at the subject videos below to help you decide. At 8.00pm the Head and Assistant Head of Sixth form will be available to answer any further questions that you may have. We look forward to seeing you!
