About

March Tasters are an excellent way to experience different subjects at Blackpool Sixth. Taster sessions are open to all year 11 students and are free to book online here from Friday 20th January 2017. There will be a wide range of subjects on offer each week, so there will be plenty to choose from.

March Tasters take place on Wednesday 1st, 8th, 15th and 22rd March 2017, and will run from 4:10pm to 5:10pm. Please ensure you arrive at Blackpool Sixth for 4:00pm to enable us to get you to the correct subject room. Please see below a list of tasters available across the four weeks.

Availability

We would encourage you to try out as many tasters as possible, but please ensure the other tasters you want to try are available on subsequent weeks. The bookings are currently set to a maximum of 30, but in the case of high demand, and where possible, we will offer additional places. Places are limited and are available on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis.
