Sixth Form Taster Lessons

The Whalley Range Sixth Form ‘Taster Lessons’ give future Year 12 students the chance to get involved in and sample possible subjects and topics.

Our annual open week gives students a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the college, its staff and the opportunities on offer. During the pandemic, future Year 12s had the chance to find out more about individual pathways, have digital taster lessons, meet the Sixth Form team, have a live Q&A via Microsoft Teams and Instagram Live and get priority interviews, all as part of our Virtual Open Week back in October 2020. You can still access many of those resources (such as the taster lessons) here on this page.
