Sixth Form Induction

Sixth Form Induction Day - Thursday 27th June, 2024

We hope your GCSEs are going well and you have confidence in your hard work and effort so far. Keep going!

We look forward to inviting all applicants to our Sixth Form Induction Day on Thursday 27th June ahead of you joining us in September, where you will get an experience of Sixth Form, understand what to expect in your first weeks of Sixth Form, and meet your new cohort, before a relaxed afternoon and the opportunity to take part in an 'It's a Knockout' icebreaker!

Applicants will receive their invitation shortly. You do not need to wear uniform but please wear clothes suitable for the school environment. You might want to bring sportswear that you don't mind getting wet in the afternoon/or a change of clothes!

If you have any questions, please email admissions@bournside.gloucs.sch.uk
