Taster Day - Year 11 to Sixth Form

Message from Mr Buckmaster, Head of Sixth Form

Dear Year 11 Students and their families,

Welcome to the Virtual Sixth Form Taster Day 2021. A particular warm welcome to any external candidates who are joining us today.

Please find below introductory presentations from myself and Mrs. Jones, Deputy Head of Sixth Form and presentations from our Student Leadership Team who were keen to talk to you about the Sixth Form experience, advice on making your choices and the opportunities study A Levels at The Marlborough School offers you. Please take time to listen to each of the videos as they serve as an introduction to this event and to the benefits, opportunities and to the culture of success we nurture at The Marlborough School Sixth Form.

Most importantly you will find links to taster lessons from each of the A Level subjects we offer. Each of these lessons gives you the opportunity to try out a range of A Level subjects, to get a feel for the content and if it is a subject you would thrive in, enjoy and which would enable you to prepare positively for your future profession.

The Sixth Form curriculum brochure and application forms can be accessed using the links on this page. Completed applications need to be posted into school for my attention or emailed to by the 12th February.

If you have any further questions about A Level study and studying at The Marlborough School Sixth Form please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Many thanks and best wishes

Mr Tony Buckmaster, Head of Sixth Form
