What next?

If you are considering joining the Academy Sixth Form at The Glassworks and want to find out more, you may like to spend a morning or afternoon with us. You will be looked after by a Sixth Form student, often someone who has joined us in the Sixth Form, and you will have the opportunity to visit Year 12 lessons of your choice.

To arrange a visit, or find out more, phone Mrs Moore, Sixth Form Receptionist, on 01303 842400 (option 4).

How do I apply?

Firstly, read the information on the courses you are interested in. Then decide whether you wish to pursue a course along the Vocational or Academic Pathway (remember that access to Level 3 courses is dependent on achieving 5 GCSEs at C grade or above including English. Individual subjects may also have their own criteria; this will be explained at your interview). If you wish to gain professional trade qualifications in Catering, Hairdressing or Beauty Therapy you will need to follow the Vocational Pathway and select one full time course from the Vocational Pathway. If you wish to follow the Academic Pathway, you will need to select three or four Level 3 courses. Applications to the Folkestone Academy Sixth Form should be made via the UCAS Progress website;

Please see your schools careers advisor or your Connexions personal advisor if you are unsure as to how to apply via the online process. If you are unable to access a careers advisor or Connexions please call The Glassworks Sixth Form Centre directly for advice on how to apply.
