Sixth Form Virtual Opening Evening

Due to Covid-19 government guidelines, we have been unable to invite Year 11 students and their parents/carers into school for our annual Sixth Form Open Evening this year. Therefore, in order to help you make a decision about whether The Bulwell Academy Sixth Form is the right choice for you, we have put together a range of resources to provide you with the information to help you. This includes filmed presentations by our Head of Sixth Form and the Leaders who facilitate the Sixth Form curriculum offer.

Any Questions

Once you have looked through the information below, and have viewed our online Prospectus, please contact Mr Cook, Head of Sixth Form if you have any questions.
