Marling Sixth Form's Live Virtual Open Evening took place on Thursday November 19th. The event was hosted in our own purpose-built virtual environment, created and populated by our sixth form students. Don't worry if you were unable to attend, you can still view much of the material via the link below. While the live Q&A sessions are no longer accessible, you can watch videos made by teachers and students, take a tour of the school, find out about life in Marling Sixth Form and get advice on choosing your A Level subjects.
Students who have been offered a conditional place for September 2021 will be invited to come along to one or more induction days between 23rd to 25th June. This will be an opportunity for you to meet your peers, try out some A Level lessons and get to know more about life in our sixth form. We look forward to meeting you.
