Sixth Form Applications
Ms Megaw: After obtaining recognition as an Outstanding Sixth Form cohort, the competition for places in year 12 for September 2014 is fierce. Our intake is likely to be the highest ever recorded, with external applicants already being interviewed for their places, and we are therefore likely to be oversubscribed this year. BDA students - your place is not guaranteed! You must ensure you have handed in your applications to secure your interview, with the deadline for applications on 18th December.
Year 11s are encouraged to hand in their applications early to ensure that you are interviewed in good time- students will be interviewed on a first come, first serve basis - so if you hand it in on the week of the deadline you are unlikely to know if you have a conditional offer until summer! In addition, students need to complete not only their subject choices but also an extended writing section on why they should be considered, as well as a school reference by their tutors or DOL. It is very important that students know their predictive data to determine their pathway which is included in the prospectus documentation given out at the open evening, picked up from Ms Foster at reception, or downloaded from our website bdasixthform.org.
I will be popping into Year 11 assembly on the 9th December to answer any questions, and with current Sixth Form students to give you their view on why you should apply. Don't delay, hand in your sixth form applications to Ms Foster in reception to secure your interview at our Outstanding BDA Sixth Form!
