Sixth Form Information Evening Event
As we are unable to host an in-school event this year we have made several options available to ensure you are fully supported in your decision-making progress. Please look through the information provided before applying.
On Information Evening, Mrs Whitson-Jones would normally present the overview of the courses on offer and to describe the Sixth form provision which will support students to prepare for the next stage in their education. This information can now be found through the video and the attached Open Evening Presentation.
The supporting Admissions Guide outlines the different entry requirements and pathways that are offered along with detailed information on each course.
Frequently asked Questions
Do I enter my ISM or my PPEs?
We need from you your most recently predicted grades- for internal students this is your ISM grade where as the PPE may only be a section of your grade.
Can I pick more than one subject in an option block?
In an option block these lessons will be happening at similar times so it will cause clashes on your timetable. If you are finding it to difficult to find a combination of subjects that work with the option blocks- please book a phone consultation.
Will the option blocks change?
These option blocks will not change. They have been created from the dry run in November. On rare occasions we may put an additional class if numbers are high but I must stress this is rare.
I have made a mistake on the form can I reapply?
Yes you can. Please inform Mrs Whitson-Jones on email@example.com and complete a new application form.
How do I calculate point score for a BTEC?
To guide you with your options, we will be offering a call back service for one-to-one consultations. Please register your interest for a call here: A member of the team will contact you to answer your questions.
We would like to offer external students who are interested in joining us a personal tour with the Head of Sixth Form. If you would like to tour the school and the sixth form facilities to find out what Churchdown School can offer- please use the ‘Book a Tour function’
