Sixth Form Virtual Open Experience  

Welcome to Year 11 into Sixth Form Virtual Open Experience 2020. 

Due to the current pandemic and Covid-19 restrictions we are not able to hold our usual Sixth Form Open Evening Events at Bishop Stopford School. Instead, we have a range of information and videos at your fingertips to introduce you to life in our busy Sixth Form.

You will find links to all the subjects we potentially offer at BSS6. All courses are dependent on numbers, so some of those listed may not run every year. On each page, you will find all the course details, along with a PowerPoint explaining everything you need to know in more detail, as well as a video from a current student in the subject. Due to the students having to record the videos at home on their phones some play better on some devices than others, therefore if you are having trouble viewing a video on a laptop please try on your phone or a tablet. Please double click on the PowerPoint name and select 'Download a copy' before watching in slide show mode.

Most students follow a three subject programme in the sixth form with a few doing four (this normally includes Maths and Further Maths).
