Sixth Form Key information

6th form group2

At St Mary’s we encourage all Sixth Form students to explore their post 18 options please go to the section Life Beyond St Mary's for further information.  

Year 12 University Applications

Students should be thinking ahead to their plans post St Mary’s. We encourage all students to be looking for work experience and volunteering experience to broaden their skills outside of the classroom. Students have the opportunity during timetabled enrichment to volunteer either on site or within the local community. Students are encouraged to undertake student leadership roles and responsibilities. All Sixth Form students are asked to start the year working towards gaining credits to complete their St Mary’s Senior Award. 

Students are entitled to apply for five days out of school to explore their post-18 options. Application forms can be collected from Mr Butler in the 6th Form block. We actively encourage all students to attend open days and taster sessions. For those students intending to go to university follow this link for a full list of UCAS open days and events. Many universities run free taster sessions which give students an opportunity to experience a taste of what university life is like. We advise students to visit individual university websites and use the Unifrog tool as a platform to build their expertise and confidence to making successful applications.
