Virtual Open Week

Here's what's happening this week...

Thank you for joining us for our Sixth Form Virtual Open Week.

Applying to study Level 3 qualifications in Sixth Form is an important decision for every student; being able to get a sense of Sixth Form life here at Weatherhead, finding out about what we offer and hearing from our Sixth Form students is an excellent first step in making the right choice.

The Sixth Form Virtual Open Week section of our website includes:

  • A presentation from Miss Whelan, Headteacher
  • A presentation from Miss Byrne, Director of Sixth Form
  • ‘Meet the Team’ videos from the dedicated Sixth Form Team
  • Links to several student led videos, outlining various aspects of life at Weatherhead Sixth Form
  • Subject specific information videos from Key Stage 5 specialist teachers
  • An electronic version of our Sixth Form Prospectus 

In addition to the resources that will be available via our website, Miss Byrne, Director of Sixth Form, will be delivering live assemblies to all Year 11 students on Monday 16th November and Thursday 19th November to explain the application process and to answer questions related to any aspect of Sixth Form life.  Throughout the week, Year 11 lessons will have a specific 30-minute level 3 ‘taster’ session and students will be provided with the opportunity to ask any specific subject related questions they may have.

We do hope that browsing through this information, and watching the videos, will mean that you find lots of interesting and useful information about life at Weatherhead Sixth Form.

In the meantime, should you have any queries or concerns regarding Sixth Form, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Sixth Form Team.
