Sixth Form Admissions
We are delighted that you are considering our Sixth Form at Gordon's School. We encourage both internal and external applications for Sixth Form. Please do not be put off from applying for a day boarding place due to distance.
We encourage families to register for our open events (currently virtual) especially our external applicants to find out more about us. For families based abroad and looking for Residential Boarding, please call the School to arrange an individual visit when possible.
For a glimpse into life at Gordon's, please see video below.
VIRTUAL Open events for entry 2021
For the safety of all concerned in these Covid times we will be running our open events virtually.
Parents/families will still be able to book for the open events and will be sent a presentation as a ‘Virtual’ visit rather than needing to attend in person. Once you have registered for one of our open events we will send you a presentation from 8th October onwards to view at your leisure.
Please make sure your Sixth Form application form is with us by 27th November 2020.
