When is the Open Evening?

The Open Evening will take place on Thursday 9th November 2023, from 6pm to 8.45pm.


Who is it for?

Our Open Evening is for prospective students and parents/carers who are interested in applying for a place at our Sixth Form to start in September 2024.

Whether you are currently studying at Didsbury High School or another school, you are welcome to join us and find out more about our Sixth Form offer.


What can I expect?

At our Open Evening, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Tour the brand new Sixth Form facilities and see our state-of-the-art classrooms, dedicated study areas and social spaces.
  • Attend subject seminars – these will be taster sessions for all of the A Level subjects we offer, allowing you to get an idea of what each subject is like and find out what you are interested in.
  • Hear from our Director of Sixth Form, who will give a speech and share our vision, values and expectations for our Sixth Form students.
  • Speak to current students and staff – they will be happy to answer any questions you may have about life at Didsbury Sixth Form, the curriculum, enrichment activities, pastoral support and more.
  • Find out about our admissions process and how to apply for a place.


Do I need to register?

We highly recommend registering your interest to have early access to our Open Evening subject seminar schedule so you can plan your evening.

By registering, you will also be the first to receive the latest Sixth Form updates and information. You can register your interest by filling out this form.

You don’t need to register for the evening itself, and can drop in at a time that best suits you.


When is the Director of Sixth Form speech?

The Director of Sixth Form speech will take place twice, at 6pm and 7pm. It will be the same each time, so you only need to attend once.


How do I find the Sixth Form?

Our Sixth Form is located within Didsbury High School. Our address is Didsbury High School, 4 The Avenue, West Didsbury, M20 2ET.

There is limited parking available on site, so we advise you to walk or use public transport if possible.

If you do come by car, please be respectful of our neighbours and do not block driveways, access routes or park on double yellow lines.

Accessible parking is available for those who need it.


How do I apply for a place?

Applications open on Thursday 9th November 2023.

Visit our Admissions page to download an application form and find everything you need to know about how to apply for a place for the academic year 2024/25.


When is the admissions deadline for the academic year 2024/25?

The deadline for submitting your application is Friday 8th December 2023.

Please make sure you complete all sections of the application form.


When do I find out whether I’ve been offered a place?

All students who apply will be invited to attend a consultation meeting with a member of our senior leadership team.

You will be given the opportunity to discuss your current progress, Sixth Form subject choices and future aspirations.

In February 2024, a conditional offer of a place in the Sixth Form will be issued following the consultation meeting.



We hope this answers some of your questions about our Sixth Form Open Evening and Admissions.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
