Mrs Claire Boyes, Head of Sixth Form commented, “Since the Sixth Form opened in 2013 it has gone from strength to strength and this summer we celebrated excellent attainment across our wide range of A Levels. Due to our documented success we are delighted to now welcome students from neighbouring towns outside of Oswestry including Wrexham, Chirk, Ellesmere, Baschurch and Powys, made possible through the operation of our own private minibuses.”
“During our forthcoming open evening I am excited to be able to share information with prospective students and their families, showcasing our excellent facilities, enabling them to meet our current students and put forward questions to our highly qualified teaching staff.”
The Marches Sixth Form truly prepares individuals for the next stage in their career path with students who received their results in August taking up places at top universities including; Cambridge, Durham, Manchester and internationally in the United States with a scholarship. Excellent results and hard work have also enabled Marches students to win places on prestigious, graduate, degree level apprenticeship programmes with companies at the cutting edge of industry, including JCB and BT.
