Sixth Form Open Evening 2015

Sixth Form Open Evening Thursday 15 October 4.30pm to 7.30pm


Given all the excellent work of staff and students currently at South Dartmoor Sixth Form, prospective students and their families might like to come along to our Open Evening on Thursday 15 October, and see some of the opportunities we offer. The whole school site including Place House Sixth Form will be open and subject staff will be on hand to discuss all the A Level and Level 3 courses, including new Art subjects, like 3D Art & Design being run in conjunction with The Atrium.


During the open evening, Kirsty Matthews, Director of Sixth Form and Matt Messias, Principal of The Atrium will give a presentation in the Hall (on Main Site) twice during the evening.  The presentations will last for about 20 minutes and will cover the range of courses on offer, guidance about which level to choose and how many to take, life as a sixth form student and the general ethos of the Sixth Form.  These presentations will take place at 4.30 pm and 6.00 pm in the Hall.  It is entirely your choice which of these you attend, but we would recommend that you start your visit with this talk and then visit individual subject staff.  Information about subject locations will be available on a leaflet from the Hall.


For the rest of your time, subject staff will be available to discuss each course and to answer any questions.  They will be spread around the College in various specialist areas.  Meetings and displays will be held in Place House, the Library, the Science laboratories, Art and Photography rooms, as well as in many other specialist facilities.  Tea/Coffee will be available at Place House (Sixth Form Centre). 


Many staff have invited current Sixth Form students to join us on the evening so that you can talk to them about what it is really like taking their particular course.


Please park on the main site or in the car park at the bottom of Place House drive, as we cannot accommodate cars at Place House itself. There will be a minibus service operating to transport people between Place House and main site. We look forward to meeting you soon.
