Virtual Sixth Form Open Evening

While it is not possible for us to host our usual Open Evening for year 11 students and their parents at this time, we would like to reassure you that our Sixth Form admissions process will operate as usual, and we are very much looking forward to welcoming students into the Sixth Form in September 2021.

We are delighted to be able to welcome you to our Virtual Open Evening, and hope that through the course of the evening we can provide you with a flavour of our Sixth Form. Please watch our introductory videos, where you will hear from our Assistant Headteacher, Head of Sixth Form, Pastoral Co-ordinator and our Head Boy and Head Girl.  You are then invited to hear from subject leaders, and students who are currently studying each of the subjects we offer in the Subject Presentation section.  The interviews with staff and students were filmed during this academic year.

You can also view our online documentation including: ‘Your Guide to Sixth Form’ which contains a useful section about ‘What to look for when choosing a Sixth Form’ along with course pages for each subject offered and information about entry requirements. 

Tonight is about informing your choices with regards to the next step you take. We are proud that our Sixth Form has a proven track record of success and has supported many students in preparing for the world beyond our walls.   Each year Cardinal Newman students have taken up places studying dentistry, medicine, law, engineering, primary teaching and adult nursing (to name only a few).  Students have also progressed to a wide range of degree apprenticeships.  Some have travelled as far as the USA, or as close as Birmingham, Warwick or Cambridge. 

We understand that making the transition from school to Sixth Form can be quite a daunting prospect. There are lots of factors to think about. In the following short videos we highlight some of the key areas to consider to help you make the right decision for your future.  

If you have any questions about Sixth Form please email:   SixthForm@CNCS.SCHOOL

If your query relates to a subject, please contact the specific Head of Department.  Their email address can be found on the Subject Information pages.
