Sixth Form – How to Apply
Please visit our website to see our Virtual Open Evening platform where you will be able to get a feel for our Sixth Form community and hear from Staff and Students. This will be the start of the application process. Our application form will ‘go live’ on the school website from Thursday 11th November.
Deadline for applications is 31st January 2022
Once you have applied, we will begin to get in touch with you. If you already study at Frances Bardsley you will have the opportunity to meet with Sixth Form staff and students informally to discuss your applications. If you are joining us from other schools you will be invited in for an informal interview. This year these will take place online via zoom. Once these meetings have taken place, we will write to the students letting them know if they have been offered a conditional place.
Once we have received all applications, we will then make final decisions on the courses that will run the following September. This decision is made based on the number of students applying for specific courses, as well as our ability to staff all of our A-Levels and BTEC courses. We will contact any students individually if it appears we are no longer able to run one of the subjects offered on our prospectus. All students will receive a letter to inform them of the subjects we are able to offer them and they must respond to let us know if they will be joining us in September.
If you have accepted an offer:
Students who have chosen to study with us from other schools will be invited into Sixth Form during the summer term to meet the Sixth Form staff and students.
On GCSE results day, ALL applicants with offers, Frances Bardsley students and those joining from other schools, are required to attend the school in person with their GCSE results. We can then discuss the courses they have chosen to study and discuss whether these will remain the same or change.
Please lookout for more information on our website in regards to enrolment.
