Sixth Form

Welcome to Sixth Form

6th Form Induction Day Film

We are pleased to share our 6th form Induction day Film with you here.

As our 2021 induction day was cancelled due to the extension of the Covid restrictions , please click on the link below to hear last year's induction day film which provides detailed information about our sixth form, and you will also hear from pupils discussing their many experiences and highlights.

Our Sixth Form open evening for 2022 applications is on the 13th Jan 2022 when applications forms will be available online.

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit our Sixth form webpages. I do hope that you find all the information that you are looking for, and they give you a flavour of our outstanding provision and facilities. Our Sixth form is built around 2 core elements:

  • Academic Excellence
  • An Enjoyable and Enriching Experience

In addition to this, a range of other relevant resources are available on our website.  These include the presentation which would normally accompany the information talk for parents which we would ordinarily host in the Main Hall on the Open Evening.  You will also find other useful resources: our introductory 'Welcome to the Sixth Form' film (see above), an overview of post-16 progress and attainment at Balcarras, a range of short films introducing each subject we offer at A-level, and a Frequently Asked Questions (and answers) document which addresses key questions. We also have information on the application process. Please do check for updates.
