Results and Enrolment
In order to officially start at St Wilfrid's Sixth Form, or on any other College course, you will need to enrol. This involves completing documentation and finalising your subject choices. You should do this where possible on GCSE Results Day, however, some institutions will have enrolment right through until their September start.
GCSE Results Day
GCSE results day is the 24th of August and you will come to school to collect your results from around 8:30am. It is important to collect these results in person so you can access help if you need it. If you can’t collect your own results, then you can give written permission to KS4 pod giving a family member or friend the authority to collect your results for you.
Enrolment Information
At St Wilfrid’s Sixth Form, you can enrol on the following dates and times.

If you have nominated someone to collect your results they can also enrol on your behalf as long as they have the details of the courses you wish to study.

· 24th of August 8:30am – 3:30pm for internal students and 9:30am – 3:30pm for external students (E block hall)

Sixth Form Bursary: at enrolment you will also be able to pick up an application form for the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund. This fund targets support towards the most financially disadvantaged 16- to 19- year old students, those who most need help with the costs of staying on in full time education. Bursary funding can help you pay for books and resources, transport to and from Sixth Form, school meals etc. Further information on the Bursary, and the application form, can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.

Free Welcome Packs:  if you enrol to study A Level Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths or Computing you will receive a free welcome pack to get you started. For the Sciences you would be the proud owner of a Year 1 textbook, lab coat and safety glasses free (worth £85). Maths students will receive an exam board approved Scientific Calculator entirely free of charge and Computer scientists will have free access to their own third generation Raspberry Pi powerful, credit-card sized, single board computer. Just another reason to choose St Wilfrid's Sixth Form!

Enhance: At St Wilfrid's Sixth Form we provide supportive pathways to help you with your applications and careers. 

Aspire: This programme is formulated to give those applying to Oxbridge and any top universities the necessary skills and experience in order to make their university applications really stand out. To join Aspire you must have a minimum of 6 GCSEs at grade 7or above. Why should I join Aspire? Strong applicants to Cambridge and other competitive universities tend to have explored their chosen subject through wider reading outside the classroom, as well as doing very well in their GCSEs and A-levels. We call this sort of exploration ‘super-curricular’, as it builds on and enhances what you are studying in school. These students also have critical thinking skills which are developed through challenge and oracy such as debate. You can look at the Aspire programme here.
