Highfields to host Sixth Form Open Evening


Prospective students are being invited to an Open Evening to get a glimpse of what our Sixth Form has to offer.

It will take place from 5.30pm-8pm on November 20th.

Visitors will get the chance to speak to current Sixth Form students and tutors, whilst taking a tour of the facilities and learning more about the extensive range of A-Level and BTEC courses we offer.

Mr S Pycroft, Head of Sixth Form, said: “We are always delighted that so many of our students choose to stay on to study at our Sixth Form and we are hosting this Open Evening so that they and other students can get a feel of what we offer.

“Highfields Sixth Form has a reputation for providing high quality teaching and learning. Our ethos is about having high expectations within a supportive and friendly environment.

“We look forward to welcoming prospective students, along with their parents or carers, to our Open Evening so they can get a flavour of our Sixth Form and consider it as an option for their Post 16 education.”

The Open Evening is being held after Sixth Form students celebrated another fantastic set of A-Level results – with over half of them being top A*-B grades and more than 100 students securing their places at university.

Students achieved a 99% pass rate – 77% of them being A*-C grades and 51% A*-B grades. In particular, students achieved some very impressive Maths and Science results this year with 4 A*s in Chemistry and 3 A*s in Maths.
