2021 Sixth Form Open Evening

Are you interested in joining our fantastic Sixth Form in September 2022?

If so then you are making the right choice.  You will be joining the highest performing Sixth Form in the area and you will be working in our brand new multi-million pound Sixth Form Centre.  You will be taught be specialist teachers with a track record of success and you will be supported by our exceptional Sixth Form leadership team who will ensure you are on track to be successful both academically and socially.

When is the Sixth Form Opening Evening?

This year our Sixth Form Open Evening is split into two events:

  • 6pm on Tuesday 5th October 2021 - online "Zoom" presentation to parents and students.  This will be an opportunity for parents and students to find our more about our Sixth Form from the Sixth Form Leadership Team and current students.  Importantly, our Deputy Head Teacher will also explain how the application process will work.  We will publish a link to the Zoom presentation on this page of the website on Monday 4th October.

  • 5pm - 7pm on Wednesday 6th October 2021.    This will be held in school.  This will be an important opportunity for parents and students to meet with subject teachers and current students to find our more about the courses on offer.  The evening will be designed to ensure that there is no crowding and that everyone is able to move safely around the school.  

What is happening in school?

Week beginning 27th September  will be a Sixth Form Information Week.  During this week there will be a number of opportunities for students to find out about our Sixth Form.  These will include:

  • Subject teachers will spend at least 15 minutes in one or their lessons talking to Year 11 students, and answering questions, about what it is like to study their subject in the Sixth Form.

  • The Sixth Form Leadership Team will visit Year 11 tutor groups and an assembly to ensure that they have all the information they need about open evenings

I don’t currently attend Kimberley School but I am considering applying.  How can I find out more?

You are very welcome to attend the Open Evening events on the 5th and 6th October.  However, if you want to find out more about Kimberley School then these are areas of our website which you should find helpful:

Is there anywhere I can access information about the Sixth Form before the 5th and 6th October?

  • The Sixth Form Induction page contains the full online induction programme we used last summer with Year 11 as they prepared to start in the Sixth Form this September.  The subject videos here will be especially useful in answering any questions you have about each subject.

  • The subject videos are also accompanied by comprehensive Subject Booklets. 

  • In Summer Term 2020 we shared with Year 11 students preparing to join us in September a “Step Up To Sixth Form” programme to help them start to prepare to study their chosen subjects.  Again these will be useful in helping you find out more about each subject area.

  • You can see the entry criteria for the sixth form and each subject area.

  • You can review the performance tables for 2019 which compare our performance with other schools in Nottinghamshire where we were once again among the very highest performing Sixth Forms in the County.  This table shows you how this performance has been sustained over the last three years.  Please be aware that the government are not publishing performance tables for 2020.

  • You can download a copy of our  Sixth Form prospectus

  • This page of our website gives on overview of key information about our Sixth Form.  On this page you can also download the regular parent and student bulletins which give you a real flavour of life in our Sixth Form.

  • You might find it useful to see if you will be eligible for the Sixth Form Bursary
