Northampton School for Boys


Sixth Form Enrolment External Timelines
September 2020

Thursday 9th January 2020
Open Evening 6.40pm – 9.00pm

All students who are considering Post-16 education at Northampton School for Boys are invited, together with their parents, to attend our Sixth Form Open Evening. On the evening, you will be able to visit subject stalls, speak to staff and current NSB students and listen to relevant information presentations.

All external applicants are expected to attend one of three presentations providing information about the school's ethos and the application process. These take place in the Cripps Hall Theatre at 6.40pm, 7.30pm or 8.20pm and MUST be booked in advance on the EVENTBRITE website. Each presentation will last for 40 minutes.

Please ensure that you plan your evening to make the most of your visit to the school. If you intend to attend the first presentation in the theatre, the subject stalls will not be open before this and if you intend to attend the last presentation, the subject stalls will not be open after this. We would anticipate that most visitors will spend in the region of 1 hour visiting relevant subject stalls.
