In addition to our own Year 11s progressing into the Sixth Form, a substantial number of students – some 90 or so – join d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form from other schools each year. A combination of day students and boarders, our new Sixth Formers come to us from a wide range of schools, locally, nationally and internationally.
If you would like to explore the possibility of joining our Sixth Form, the first step would be to give our Senior Registrar, Mrs Lynne Berry, a call for an initial conversation. Lynne may be reached on +44 (0)1865 688 600.
We would then strongly encourage you to come and visit as early as possible. Typically, you might wish to come to an Open Morning first and then follow this up with an individual visit on a school day – though you can just as easily do this the other way around.
We usually have three Open Days a year, one in each term. Joining us on an Open Day will give you a relaxed and informal way to meet staff and students and to glean a lot of information about all aspects of life at d’Overbroeck’s. It is also a time when all academic departments set out their stalls, so you will be able to spend time discussing possible A level subject choices with the relevant heads of department and with students who are currently studying these subjects.

It is important that students and parents come for an individual visit to meet staff and get a feel for Sixth Form life. You are very welcome to do so at any time and could choose to do so be before you come to an Open Day or after.
Where the Open Day will give you the opportunity to meet a wide range of staff and students and to gather a lot of information in a relatively short time, the individual visit will give you the opportunity to have an in-depth conversation with a senior member of staff (usually the Head of Sixth Form or the Head of Lower Sixth) and to discuss your own programme of study in specific detail. You will also have the opportunity to get a flavour of daily life in our Sixth Form and to talk in some detail to staff and students (provided you come to visit in term-time).
