Post-16 school and college open evenings

Each year, sixth forms, colleges and employers taking on apprentices open their doors to Year 11 students for two ‘taster days’ in January.

In 2021, this will not be possible, so providers have put together online information to give Year 11s an opportunity to talk to current students and apprentices, watch videos and ask questions about courses and training.

There will also be a Facebook Live Q&A event,from 5-6pm on Thursday 28 January (postponed from 21 January) when representatives from schools and colleges will answer your questions.

School and college open evenings

Post-16 'sixth form' schools and colleges in York hold open evenings each autumn.

Year 11 students and their parents/carers are advised to view schools and colleges on their respective open evenings before making an application for a place in Year 12 (though these evenings are open to all students and parents/carers)..

Applying for a place at a sixth form school or college

Please note that there is no co-ordinated application process for Year 12; applications should be made directly to the preferred school or college.
