Sixth Form Open Evening

Welcome to our 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 our thriving Sixth Form in September 2021.

We are delighted to be able to welcome you to our Virtual Open Evening pages, and hope that through the course of this process, you will gain a good understanding of our fantastic Sixth Form provision. Please watch the following videos, where you will hear from students and staff about what makes our Sixth Form such a great place to study. 

You can then use our online subject guide section, which provides detailed information about each of the very many subjects we offer, along with entry requirements and frequently asked questions. You can view our full prospectus and our subject information booklet. Once you have spent time looking through all the content, and have asked any questions you may have, please complete our initial indication form.

We hope that you get a good flavour of the welcoming and productive environment our Sixth Form provides, and we very much look forward to meeting you in the future.

The Marriotts Extra Curriculum

 

Subject Information Videos

Our curriculum has been designed to give students the best possible future opportunities. We offer a wide range of A level subjects, but we also have a strong vocational and technical offer as well. All courses are Level 3, and equivalent in terms of UCAS points, and all will lead towards university study.

We offer a range of pathways at Marriotts Sixth Form, depending on your GCSE results and aspirations. We ask that the majority of students pick three courses to study in Year 12.

Technical and Vocational subjects have coursework elements and in some instances work placement. They are challenging in a different way, demanding commitment and organisation, but may be suitable if you struggle with the idea of exams.

Our teaching is geared around supporting students through the difficult early transition from GCSE, but as the year progresses, we look to ensure that students understand the core concepts and skills behind a subject, not just the best approaches to an exam. Above all, we believe that Sixth Form education is about enabling students to achieve whatever they aspire to in adult life.

You can find a list of the courses we offer below. Click the course your are interested in to find out more.
