Sixth Form Open Evening - Wednesday 4 October 2017
Our next Sixth Form Open Evening will be held on Wednesday 4 October 2017.
Please arrive at 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start, when you will hear a welcome talk from our Headmaster, Mr Chris Hutchinson and our Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Sandra Culbert.
You will then have the opportunity to visit the subjects your child is considering studying and speak to teaching staff and current students.
We look forward to seeing you.
The Sixth Form at Royal Russell is a vibrant community with a full curriculum and an extensive range of opportunities to enrich our students.
A wide range of A level courses is offered, along with a Cambridge Technical Diploma in Sport.
Students have greater responsibility for organising their time, make individual choices and enjoy a wide range of privileges. We encourage our students to set clear goals, work hard and take full advantage of the many co-curricular opportunities available.
Bespoke Careers advice encourages students to aim higher and choose a rewarding career. The Head of Sixth Form, individual tutors and subject teachers play an important role in providing appropriate advice and guidance in supporting each student’s academic and personal progress.
The Sixth Form Library and Study Centre provide the focus for academic life and the Sixth Form Café provides a space for relaxation during breaks and lunch.
Sixth Formers enjoy exclusive events and trips such as formal dinners, concerts and the Summer Ball.
There are many opportunities for new experiences and the development of skills. Sixth Form students attend seminars and tutorials, covering issues such as effective study skills, examination technique, presentation and preparing for interviews.
Our varied Assembly Programme features guest speakers who inform and inspire our students across diverse range of careers. Recent speakers have included Professor A C Grayling.
The Sixth Form is at the core of the School, playing a key role in all aspects of daily life. Whether as a prefect, a team captain, a mentor of junior pupils, the School helps Sixth Form students develop their leadership qualities.
Royal Russell students achieve excellent A level results and accept offers at their first choice of university.
Sixth Form students do not wear school uniform and are responsible for choosing their own ‘business dress' clothing.
