Visit the Sixth Form

We offer many ways to visit and experience Sixth Form life at SGS with individual tours, the Sixth Form Open Evening and taster days – we would be delighted to welcome you.


We will be delighted to show you around on an individual family school day tour. Bookings can be made by contacting Viv Arrowsmith on 0161 419 2408 or

As a school we are continuing to follow government Covid-19 guidance. The wearing of masks is no longer required; visitors may choose to wear a mask if they prefer. Hand sanitiser is available throughout the site. If a member of your visiting group displays any of the Covid-19 symptoms prior to the event, please do not attend. We will be happy to re-arrange your visit at a later date.

16+ Open Evening

Our next Sixth Form Open Evening will be held on Tuesday 11th October 2022. Booking is essential and can be done by completing this form.

During the event visitors were able to take in our newly opened Sixth Form social and study spaces.

The 2020 Sixth Form Open Evening was a Virtual Event. Access the Open Event and watch video presentations from each of our A-level departments along with a series of short films by staff, current Sixth Formers and alumni.

Sixth Form Taster Days

Our taster days enable Fifth Year (Year 11) pupils to experience a day in our Sixth Form to help them find out more about the subjects they are interested in, meet our current students and staff and see our school.

What happens on a taster day?

Pupils can join us for a taster day on a mutually convenient date from September to April.

Most choose to spend a whole day with us but half-day sessions (9.10am to approximately 1pm or 1.40pm to 3.50pm) are also available.

Taster days are tailored around the subjects that the pupil is interested in. They will be accompanied by current Sixth Form students who share the same interests. We can also arrange for them to meet with subject teachers and senior members of staff.

Pupils don’t need to wear uniform but can choose to wear colours similar to the school’s. We provide a free lunch on whole day and morning taster sessions.

To book a taster day please contact our Admissions Officer, Margaret Connor, by telephone on 0161 419 2409 or by email at
