For more information look at the courses we have on offer and come to our  6th Form Open Evening early in the Spring Term. We will have more information on reserving a place on our Eventbrite site shortly. All courses have access criteria which you will need to meet; all details of which are explained here.

Students who wish to apply for a place in the 6th form will be given an application form in school and will automatically get an interview slot in school time.  Applicants from different schools will be invited for an interview once we receive your online application. References will also be taken from your current school and a place will be offered based on your application, interview and reference.

Please contact the Head of 6th Form via admin@calderstones.co.uk if you require any further information. Alternatively, you can call 0151 724 2087 to speak to a member of the team.
