Dear Parent/carer,

Re: Post-16 Application Evening 4th November 4pm-7pm

Why attendance is vital

On 4th November 2021 it is our post-16 application evening and it is vital that you attend if your child is in Year 10 or Year 11. It is not guaranteed that every school leaver will be accepted on their chosen course with their chosen provider at post-16, as competition for places across the city is extremely high. Therefore, all pupils and parents must have the highest quality advice of how to ensure applications have the best chance of success.

The aim of the evening is to:

  • Ensure you are fully informed about your child’s choices of education, employment or training once they leave Dean Trust Ardwick at the end of Year 11.
  • Understand the application process for local sixth forms, colleges and apprenticeships.
  • Allow you the opportunity to speak to representatives from local colleges, sixth forms and apprenticeship providers so that all of your questions can be answered.
  • Give you the opportunity to speak to our Level 6 careers advisor should you need any specialist support.

What the evening will consist of

The evening is a drop in event and you can choose to join us at either 4pm, 5pm or 6pm.

There will be a highly informative presentation on the different pathways beyond secondary school and so far, we have confirmed the attendance of 16 local providers of post-16 education, employment and training including:

  • Loreto Sixth Form.
  • Xaverian College.
  • The Manchester College.
  • Salford College (Pendleton, Eccles, FutureSkills@Media City).
  • Access Creative College.
  • Stockport College.
  • Connell Co-Op College.
  • The Growth Company.
  • Ashton-on-Mersey Sixth Form.
  • Cheadle Hulme High School.
  • Greater Manchester Higher (for advice about university pathways).

Further guidance on post-16 pathways:

To prepare for the event, we highly recommend that you visit our website at and watch our informative videos for parents of Year 10 and Year 11 pupils.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you to our event on November 4th.

Yours sincerely,

Miss S Whittington
