Launching the MCS Sixth Form Application Process for September 2021!

In November Year 11 watched a presentation on their future pathways options and how to make informed decisions. Due to the recent move to distance learning, we are launching our Sixth Form prospectus and application process for September 2021 digitally.

Year 9 students choosing Key Stage 4 Options - September 2021

Early in December Year 9 attended a presentation on their future pathways and how to make informed decisions. They also attended a number of taster lessons and were issued with a 2021 Options Booklet and a Free Choice Form. Due to the recent move to distance learning we have re-issued this form digitally.

The digital Free Choice Form can be found at: https://forms.gle/TBTswpn1CihMBn3B8
