- Becket Keys 6th Form
- Key Dates
- School Website
- BK6 Talks
Other key dates can be found on this page.
It is worth noting these dates now as there are several important events which provide excellent ways for students to find out more about Becket Keys and gain support when making crucial decisions. For example, the consultations in November, Sixth Former for a Day in January and the Bridging Event in June are designed with students’ needs at these points in mind. Further details about each of these will be provided during the open event.
The open event is a great opportunity for students and parents to visit Becket Keys and see the site (including the Sixth Form area), meet teachers, get to know other students and discover what is included in the curriculums of different subjects. Relevant members of staff will deliver talks to provide all the information anyone would want to know, from what to consider when choosing subjects to what a ‘typical’ day is like and from the support students are given when preparing for life after Becket Keys to how external students are integrated seamlessly.
During the 2020-21 academic year, we were not able to host an open event on site. Consequently, we made a series of videos with lots of information on. These are still available below and will provide some information, although the best way to get to know the school, staff and students is by attending the open evening. It is also worth noting that some information is now out of date - so attending the open event is the best way to get a totally accurate understanding.
