INTERVIEWS & ADVICE
Currently, our friendly Admissions team are busy working to provide advice and guidance for Year 11 students.
We review all applications very carefully. If we need to discuss your application, then we will contact you to arrange a convenient time for an email exchange or telephone call. This would simply be a friendly chat with one of our Admissions and School Liaison team and is nothing to be worried about at all. Under normal circumstances we would speak to you in school or in college, but this is currently not possible due to the ongoing Covid restrictions. We will, however, be in regular contact via email and this will be reviewed as the year progresses.
If you are in Year 11 and have not yet applied to us, you can do so here. Please note that our initial deadline for applications to join us in September 2021 was 1st March 2021. However, we are still able to accept applications.
After you have applied, make sure you check your emails so you don’t miss our offer of a conditional place, (click here for the minimum entry requirements for your place at Blackpool Sixth).
Any updates and news from Blackpool Sixth will be sent to you throughout the year, so please check your messages regularly.
If you need to update your email or phone number at any time you can do so at firstname.lastname@example.org
