A warm welcome to all year 10 students!

We want to make sure you have lots of information about our courses and can get an insight into what life as a student with us is like.
Below on our hub you will find mini video lessons for each of our subjects to help you understand more about our courses, video introductions to the wider Blackpool Sixth experience, and tasks for you to try at home. Feel free to dip in and out of these
subjects and try as many as you like.

Next term we hope you will be able to visit Blackpool Sixth at one of our open events to find out even more. Follow us on social media @blackpoolsixth for the latest information.

If you feel that Blackpool Sixth might be an option for you then we would encourage you to apply as soon as possible next term. You can apply via our website. Filling in an application does not mean you would have to come to Blackpool Sixth, it just means that you are interested and we can give you lots of support with deciding what is best for you.

We advise that you get your application in as soon as possible next term for the following reasons:


• Opportunity to sign up to forthcoming events

• Get advice and guidance on careers and subject choices

A message from our principal, Jill

Pastoral Support

Strong pastoral care, support and guidance are extremely important in contributing to students’ success. Your pastoral mentor will offer advice and guidance to help you settle in quickly and enjoy your time with us. You will have a weekly group session with your pastoral mentor where you will cover the pastoral curriculum, a programme of sessions that covers topics such as careers advice and guidance, mental/physical wellbeing and life skills, such as personal finance, to prepare for your life after college. You will also have regular 1:1 meetings to discuss your academic progress, personal development, and agree individual improvement targets. Your pastoral mentor will also help you to make the right decisions about career choices and applications for higher education or employment with training.

However, over the past years the group and community has grown and is now part of the 6Xtra programme so every student has the opportunity to join. Find out more about the group here LGBT+ Group
