The Marches School Sixth Form in Oswestry will be opening its doors on Saturday 2nd February 2019 to prospective students offering them the opportunity to experience life as a Sixth Form student.
Since the Sixth Form opened at The Marches School in 2013 it has gone from strength to strength and now accommodates just over 170 students in a modern, purpose-built Sixth Form centre, with students gaining a 100 per cent pass rate at A Level and four students gaining straight A* grades in 2018.
In the morning, parents will be welcomed by the Associate Headteacher and will receive a talk from the Head of Sixth Form about the curriculum on offer, academic and pastoral care approaches and post 16 reform whilst students take part in taster lessons by subject specialist teachers.
