Sixth Form Open Evening

The Sixth Form Open Evening is a chance for current Queen's girls and prospective sixth formers currently studying at other schools at get a real sense of what it would be like to study for A-levels and Pre-U qualifications at Queen's.

The Sixth Form at Queen's draws on the huge academic talent of The Queen's Senior School but differs in many ways; teaching and learning is much more collaborative and students are encouraged to develop their independence through activities, taking on responsibilities, volunteering and independent research.

The format of the evening involves short talks from The Queen's School Deputy Head (Curriculum) Joanne Keville, Head of Sixth Form Robin Wilson and current pupils who have either joined us from elsewhere or been at Queen's for their whole school career. Their differing perspectives can often be enlightening.

Prospective students and parents will have the opportunity to then tour the Sixth Form facilities and meet the Heads of Department in order that they may have a better understanding of the subjects they intend to pursue at A-level.

Information will be available on careers advice, support for applications to competitive courses as well as our Queen's Baccalaureate and the curriculum enrichment opportunities this presents.

The 2018 event takes place on Wednesday 17 October from 6.30-8.30pm at The Queen's Senior School, City Walls Road, Chester, CH1 2NN. Parking is available nearby at the Linenhall Car Park or at the Chester Racecourse car park. Click here for a map and directions to the school.
