Sixth Form Open Event 2023 (for entry in 2024)
SIXTH FORM OPEN EVENT - Thursday 19th October 2023, 4:30pm - 8:30pm
Booking is now open and places can be reserved here: Sixth Form Open Event
The Sixth form talks are sold out but please feel free to visit the school on Thursday 19th October and talk with the Heads of Department about the subjects you are interested in studying and to tour the school. Tour guides will be available or alternatively you can make your own way round and find your own route.
Our outstanding and distinctive Sixth Form is focused on securing top university places and high-quality apprenticeships for our students.
Our open evening will feature presentations by the Headteacher, Head of Sixth Form and Sixth Formers, plus lots of opportunity to speak to teachers of each of our subjects – and the students who take these. You will have the freedom to explore areas of the school site (including the Sixth Form area) and discover more about as many courses as you wish at your leisure. Presentations will be at set times throughout the evening. Please come along for as long as you want to, so that you can leave knowing all about life in Becket Keys Sixth Form and the pathways available to you.
Other key dates can be found on this page. There are several important events which provide excellent ways for students to find out more about Becket Keys and gain support when making crucial decisions. For example, the consultations in November, Sixth Former for a Day in January and the Bridging Event in June are designed with students’ needs at these points in mind. Further details about each of these will be provided during the open event.
