Individual appointments

As prospective Sixth Form candidates, you can choose to spend a Taster Day in school when you will meet our current Sixth Formers, shadow or observe tutorials and lessons, take part in activities, enjoy lunch – basically becoming one of our students for the day!  You will meet our Head of Sixth Form, key subject staff and “new” Sixth Formers.

For more information or to arrange a call with Mrs Hilton, Head of Sixth Form, please call 0161 794 1463 or email admin@bwslive.co.uk

 

Bridgewater School Sixth Form

Making an application

  • Once you and your parents register your interest in joining us at Bridgewater Sixth Form, you are all invited into school for a meeting with the Head of Sixth Form and an interview with the Headmistress.
  • Where it is relevant, you may meet Heads of Department.
  • We consider carefully the report from your present Head Teacher, following up any areas for further support.
  • A conditional offer of a place will then be made, dependent on your son or daughter’s GCSE results. This will usually be a minimum of 5 GCSEs graded 4 and above, including English and Mathematics. In addition, students will normally be expected to obtain a grade of 6 or better in their chosen subjects. Applications to take a subject without a GCSE or equivalent level qualification can be discussed on an individual basis.
  • Applications indicating your chosen four subjects are required by the end of February prior to GCSE examinations.
  • You will indicate your AS/A2 choices and we will keep in touch as we devise the timetable.
  • On GCSE results day, you contact us and we take it from there.

We welcome applications from overseas students as we are a highly trusted Tier 4 sponsor and accredited with the British Council’s International School Award at Intermediate Level.

Our A level results speak for themselves, but it is the success of our individual approach which says so much about our school.
