Sixth Form Application Form

On receipt of an Application Form, we write to the prospective student’s current school for references.  We then invite prospective Sixth Formers for interview during the latter half of the Spring Term or the start of the Summer Term.

If, on GCSE Results day, the required grades have been attained, pupils are asked to inform us, upon which they will be invited into school to bring in their GCSE results and collect a Welcome pack.

Open Evening Information

Our Sixth Form Open Evening will be on 16th October, 6-8pm.

This is when our own Year 11 pupils and girls interested in joining our Sixth Form from other schools can have a detailed look at all the subject options available and get information about life in Withington’s Sixth Form.

Prospective Sixth Formers from other schools are encouraged to subsequently attend one of our other Open Days in order to get a really good look around the School and have further opportunities to speak to teaching staff and find out about other things such as transport and bursaries.

For information about our Open Events in November please follow this link.
