Admissions & Prospectus
Admissions into Year 12
In the autumn term, our pastoral team visit secondary schools within the local area to talk to the Year 11 students about their Sixth Form options and subjects. We then hold an Open Evening to prospective students and their parents to visit the school, talk to teachers and get a feel of what we have to offer. We also hold a Subject Taster Evening in the Spring term so that students can understand the syllabus and method of teaching in greater detail, together with being able to talk to colleges, universities, Duke of Edinburgh specialists etc so that they can fully grasp what St Augustine's Sixth Form has to offer.
The videos below will give you a distinct flavour of the essence and vibe of our Sixth Form and in the coming weeks, further videos will be added from Heads of Department outlining the subjects taught at A Level and BTEC. If you would like to find out more, read through the attachments below from Which? and the Head of Sixth Form which succinctly details which qualifications are more suitable to your career path.
