Events > Sixth Form Open Day

The Sixth Form Open Day is the opportunity to find out all the benefits of attending NCW at Sixth Form. You will learn about studying and living at NCW and how students prepare for onward transition into further or higher education, the workplace and independence.

At NCW we have the highest expectations for the young people studying with us at Sixth Form, all our teachers are qualified teachers of the visually impaired which means EVERY lesson is accessible and we offer an extensive choice of subjects.

You will be able to tour the school and the residential side of the campus, meet the Principal and other staff and be able to chat to current students about life at NCW.

You will also find out about the courses available to study – including GCSE re-takes, A Levels, BTEC and Vocational Courses along with information about NCW’s expanded core curriculum; Braille, mobility, Independent Living Skills and Assistive Technology.

The day will particularly focus on how the specialist teaching at NCW makes subjects such as Maths, Science and Music accessible at A Level, and how NCW students are prepared for living independently in the next stage of their journey.

Who should attend?

Young people with a visual impairment who are investigating options for sixth form study and their families
