Next Tuesday, 12th November, we are holding our Sixth Form Open Evening: our opportunity to explain to current Fulham Boys and external students alike what FBS offers and delivers for their critical, final years of school. We’ll be explaining how we are drawing on the best practice and ideas from the state and private sector to prepare our students for A levels, and to equip them for what follows in university life and the world of work. What are we offering? FBS is an academic sixth form. This means traditional A Level subjects and the EPQ (to some boys) along with BTEC Sport. We have small class sizes and a high number of teaching hours per subject. We want our teaching to provide a route to the top universities in the country, so two of our sixth form tutors are spending time at Pembroke College, Oxford and Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge learning how to fully prepare our boys for Oxbridge. Students visit the colleges, look at the departments that they are interested in and spend time with undergraduates. We are also building strong links with Brasenose College, Oxford and Trinity College Oxford, through partnerships centred on rowing but again giving our boys the opportunity to experience university life and lose inhibitions about applying to these big beasts.
