How do I book a place?

In order for you to book a place at the taster day you will need to be a prospective student and therefore will need to have applied to study at Blackpool Sixth. The application is NOT a final commitment to join Blackpool Sixth it simply enables us to communicate essential information to prospective students and their parents/carers.

You can now book your place on the taster day, Saturday 19th January 2019 and select your two subject tasters. You should pick different tasters for each session, you will also be asked for a reserve choice, in case we are not able to accommodate your first choice sessions. Please note, there will be more opportunities to attend further tasters during March 2019 after school and our New Student day Wednesday 3rd July 2019.

The booking form will only take a few minutes to complete but you will need your applicant number to do this. If you do not know your applicant number, please email with your name, school and date of birth or call the Admissions Team on 01253394911.
