Sixth Form Update

02/07/2018

 

 

We are delighted to announce that from September 2018 we will be working more closely with Lavington School on Post 16 provision. 

For all current existing Y11 applications to Devizes Sixth Form, either internal or external, there is absolutely no change to courses or provision.

 

The only immediate change is that we will now be joined by the students who had originally signed up to be part of the Lavington/Matravers Sixth Form. This will now be run in conjunction with Devizes School. It was originally planned that most of those students would be predominantly based at Lavington School, this has not changed but some will now be accessing... read more
