Welcome to FSG's virtual Sixth Form Open information
Gathering information regarding options available for Post 16 study is highly important for year 11 students. Making informed decisions about options and courses of study for the next stage in their education is key. To facilitate with that decision making process we hope you find the range of videos and information regarding our Sixth Form and Subjects below informative.
The first set of videos recorded for the options evening event give details about our Sixth Form, programmes of study and how to apply. To find out this information please take a look at the Head of Sixth Form and Vice Principal instructions.
For an insight into life as a student you may find the student videos and responses informative.
Finally the subject presentations recorded with our subject specialists explain the courses on offer in the Sixth Form to accompany the subject description sheets.

For internal students parents are able to book an appointment via the parents evening booking system for a video call on the evening of Thursday 2nd December 4-6pm to ask any questions regarding the subjects after having explored all the resources above.
In addition to this, to enable queries any external students may have a 10 minute google meet is scheduled for each subject on the evening of Thursday 2nd December 4-6pm for any one who wishes to join and ask the Subject Lead questions. Unfortunately due to the range of subjects for each time slot there are three different subjects running their google meet at the same time. If this poses a problem and there is a clash and you are unable to attend the google meet for all subjects you wish to, please do submit any queries you have on the google form, at the very bottom of this page, and the subject lead/relevant member of staff will be able to get back to you.
Please follow the links below at the allocated time slots to speak to the Subject lead within that area.
