Sixth Form Open Evening Information for External Students
All students considering post-16 education are invited, together with their parents, to attend The Sixth Form Open Evening at Northampton School for Boys. The evening, on Thursday 5th January 2023, is open to students and parents/carers of students who are not currently attending Northampton School for Boys.
All parents and students are strongly recommended to attend one of three presentations held in the Cripps Hall Theatre at 6:30pm, 7:30pm and 8:30pm. These presentations will explain how the application and admissions process works as well as providing potential applicants with the opportunity to hear an address from the Headmaster, Mr R. Bernard and to hear from the current Headboy and Headgirl about their experiences at the school. In order to attend one of the presentations, parent/carers/students must book a place on Eventbrite. Due to the numbers attending on the evening, a maximum of three places can be booked per family and if a time slot becomes fully booked, you will need to book a place at an alternative time.
PLEASE ONLY BOOK ONE PRESENTATION SESSION. (Any duplicate bookings will have the later presentation time removed)
PLEASE NOTE: You will be asked to provide a copy of your booking for the presentation in the theatre as space is limited. Unfortunately, you will not be able to reserve seats if any of your party are arriving at different times.
Throughout the evening, there will also be the opportunity to find out more information about the subjects that we offer in the 6th Form at Northampton School for Boys, to speak to current students and teachers and also to visit some of the school site and its facilities. These subject information stalls will be available throughout the evening between the hours of 6:45pm and 9:00pm.
Application information will be available on the evening. The deadline for applications is 5:00pm on Monday 30th January 2023.
It is important that you plan your evening so that you can attend one of the presentations and also visit the subject information stalls that interest you. Please note that if you wish to attend the first presentation in the theatre at 6:30pm, the subject stalls WILL NOT be open before this presentation. Similarly, if you decide to attend the last presentation at 8:30pm, the subject stalls WILL NOT be open after this presentation.
ALL VISITORS FOR THE EVENING MUST ENTER THE SCHOOL VIA THE CRIPPS HALL ENTRANCE WHICH IS OPPOSITE THE CRIPPS HALL CAR PARK. YOU ARE ADVISED TO ARRIVE IN GOOD TIME FOR THE TALKS IN THE THEATRE.
