Sixth Form Open Evening!

Posted at 12:27 pm on 17th October, 2022

Flixton Girls School Sixth Form (FGS6thform), proudly opened their doors to prospective students, from both year 10 and 11 plus their family members. With a record number of families taking the opportunity to consider what options are available for their daughters' further educational journey with us!

The event followed our student taster day where year 11 tested out a ‘Day in the Life’ of a prospective Sixth Former. Having selected subjects they were interested in continuing their academic journey in, they received a taster lesson with subject leaders.

During the Open Evening staff and current Sixth Form students were on hand to talk through career destinations and how these link to a plan of action, for a tailor made academic pathway. 

Although part of FGS and a dedicated partner of Trafford College, our Sixth Form is a fresh start for all who attend. Students are based in our dedicated Sixth Form Centre and are taught by A Level specialists from the school. We believe our students deserve an education that broadens their experience and prepares them for the challenges of an increasingly competitive world. Our young people expand their knowledge through flexible routes and we have a proven track record of excellent progression. Building and nurturing all our students' academic potential enables them to secure their offers for universities and apprenticeships.

Erin Jones, Head Girl 2017-18, graduated from Liverpool University with a 2:1 in History last summer. She came back to share her experiences of Sixth Form life and how she excelled in her A Level studies during her time with us. She is now off to teach English as a foreign language in Thailand.

Erin said, ‘Sixth form allowed me to focus on the subjects I was passionate about. I can safely say that staying at Flixton for Sixth Form was the right decision for me because although you gain more independence, that familiar school learning environment enabled me to achieve my very best. The smaller class sizes at FGS Sixth Form meant that I could easily ask the teachers for help or feedback and this allowed me to progress academically. Staying at FGS helped me to achieve my goals and develop into a confident young person who is able to navigate today’s ever-changing society.’ Erin cannot wait to return to the UK to start her Postgraduate Certificate in Education with the goal of becoming a History teacher.
