This year, the 6th form open evening will take place on Thursday 18th November between 6pm and 8:30pm. This is the perfect opportunity for you to find out more about our post-16 offer at William Perkin, to take a tour of the school and to meet the Key Stage 5 teachers to explore the courses you are interested in studying. You will have the opportunity to hear about our scholars programmes, offering specialist provision and support for students interested in pursuing a career in engineering, medicine, linguistics or humanities, as well as for those students intending to apply for Oxbridge. You will also find out more about our extensive wider- and super-curricular offer, known as the CASE programme, and our subject lecture series.

We encourage all students to visit, both existing Year 11 students and external applicants, as it is very important for you to get an insight into life as a William Perkin sixth former.

Tickets for the Head Teacher’s talk at the sixth form open evening are now available to book! Please see below for the link. There are 350 tickets available for each talk, so please do ensure you book a ticket for every member of your party.

The talk will last approximately 40 minutes and will include details of our sixth form provision, subject options and entry requirements, scholars programmes (in engineering, medicine, linguistics, humanities and for students intending to apply for Oxbridge), extra-curricular opportunities, student leadership and much more!

If you are not able to attend the talk, you are still welcome to attend the Open Evening for a tour of the building and the opportunity to talk to Heads of Department and teachers about the subjects you are interested in studying. You will also have the chance to meet and talk to current Year 12 and 13s about life as a WP sixth former. You will not need a ticket for this.

We look forward to welcoming you to the William Perkin Sixth Form Open Evening!
