Urmston Grammar provides high quality teaching and a place where you can learn with like-minded students who want to succeed; the school has excellent facilities and a wide range of opportunities to enhance your personal portfolio.
We are committed to helping young people find appropriate post 16 study. Our Sixth Form has a wholly academic post 16 provision and we offer a wide range of A Level courses.
Registration is now open to attend the Sixth Form Information Evening.
Students in our current Year 11 and those from other schools who are interested in joining our Sixth Form in September 2018 are invited to attend our Sixth Form Information Evening on Thursday 9th November. During the evening you will have the opportunity to learn about the different courses we offer and you will receive advice from teachers, students and Amy Marshall (Careers Advisor) to help you select the right A Levels.
The Information Evening will begin with an introductory presentation from Mrs Wall (Principal), Mrs Lyons (Head of Sixth Form) and other key staff from the SLT and the Sixth Form Team.
Subject talks will be held for all of the A Levels we currently offer. There will also be an opportunity to talk to students about our Enrichment Courses, including the EPQ.
To register to attend, all students (both those in our current Year 11 and those from other schools) must complete the online Sixth Form Information Evening Application Form below, by Wednesday 8th November 2017 at the latest; the online form will close after this date.
The form will ask you to specify which subject talks you would like to attend; we will email you a confirmation to show that your preferences have been registered. All of our correspondence will be sent via email; please check that your email is typed correctly.
Please Note: If you wish to take Further Mathematics, you must also select Mathematics as subject choice. At the open evening it is important that you attend the Mathematics presentation before attending the Further Mathematics presentation. Further details will be available on the event.
Sixth Form Applications
After you have attended our Information Evening and have decided on the three subjects you wish to study at A Level you will need to complete a Sixth Form Application Form. Applications will open shortly.
Students who wish to study four A levels need to discuss this with Mrs Lyons at the event, by email firstname.lastname@example.org or in person if they currently attend the school. It is essential that students have confirmation from Mrs Lyons before they submit their application. It is extremely challenging to study four A level subjects and students must be of the highest academic ability to succeed on such a rigorous programme of study.
Final closing date for applications is Monday 29th January – early applications are welcomed.
You will need to select 3 subjects from the different option blocks. You cannot choose more than one subject from any one option block.
If your subject choices do not fit into the option blocks published, you should pick an alternative combination that can be accommodated and state your ideal choices in the additional comments section provided on the application form. If we are unable to accommodate your preferences, we will contact you to discuss this.
