Applying for a Sixth Form Place

Transferring to Sixth Form studies can be a daunting experience for some pupils (and their parents) and even those most ready and confident about moving onto the next stage of their education can become anxious. 

At St Mark’s we have an extensive, structured transition programme so that all can feel secure and well-prepared for this exciting phase of their educational journey.

I hope that you will find the information below useful and valuable in helping you to choose St Mark’s for your Sixth Form education. However, it can only give you a flavour of St Mark’s; you are therefore warmly invited to make an appointment to visit the school at any time to observe the school and its atmosphere.

By choosing St Mark’s you are entrusting us with the most vital stage of your education and it is our duty to ensure you receive the best education and opportunities.
