Entry to Sixth Form

Our Sixth Form Open Evening is to be held on Thursday 14th October 2021 for entry in September 2022 and provides a relaxed opportunity to meet our tutors and discuss the wide array of subject options available to you, as well as finding out more about the benefits of a Bridgewater School Sixth Form education. Prospective students can also experience our Virtual Open Day which enables visitors to take a virtual tour of our grounds and facilities, hear from Heads of Departments and see what life is like here at Bridgewater.

Individual appointments (subject to restrictions)

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 Minta, 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 The 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 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.
