Batley Girls’

Sixth Form College

Brilliant BG6 students

We are well into recruitment and interview season with a record number of applications to BG6. Miss Dixon and the team are really enjoying meeting our prospective Year 12 cohort, both internal and external candidates, discussing high academic and personal aspirations. Offer letters should be going out along with further transition information by the Easter break. 


We are also celebrating amazing accomplishments with our Year 13 cohort and their next steps after BG6. The ethos of BG6 is to overcome any obstacles, break down barriers and to enable our students’ dreams to their first choice next step, whether that is University, a Degree Apprenticeship, a traditional apprenticeship or securing their first jobs.


We’re delighted that at this early stage in the UCAS process 98% of the cohort have received at least one conditional offer to go to one of their chosen universities with such a wide eclectic range of courses. From Mathematics and Accountancy, at The University of Sheffield, Speech and Language Therapy, Graphic Design and Animation at The University of Huddersfield, Archaeology at Durham University, Criminology at The University of Southampton, Architecture at The University of Manchester, Law, English and History, Nursing at the University of Leeds and Pharmaceutical Science, and Clinical Sciences and Medicine at Bradford University.


An equally fantastic accomplishment and a big well done must go to our students who have secured apprenticeships and are going through that process with successful interviews in teaching, nursing, accountancy and healthcare sectors.


These destinations wouldn’t be possible without the structure of our curriculum at BG6; students go above and beyond every week in Enrichment, Work Experience, Visits and Higher Education experiences, and the Supra Curriculum where students delve into the wider academic and work related world. One success we’re looking forward to supporting is our debate team, having competed wonderfully in Sheffield at the Oxford Union’s student debate regional rounds, and BG6 will be heading to Windsor Castle to support one Year 12 in the finals of the Historical Association’s Great Debate. 


The last sprint has started for Year 13 with their diagnostic mocks to see how their knowledge, exam application or self-management have improved towards their academic aspirations. The next few weeks ahead have been structured strategically to support students to gain those three levers. As a brilliant year group, we are looking forward to supporting them to reach those equally brilliant heights!
