FSD Sixth Form

Welcome To Fram Sixth Form

FSD is very proud of the sixth form provision, and year on year most students achieve the results they need to secure places at their first choice university. Many students also secure places at Russell Group Universities, which are world-class research intensive institutions delivering an outstanding education beyond school life. FSD has an excellent reputation for preparing students for life after school, not only through their daily education, but through outstanding care, guidance and support.

This page is dedicated to information about or sixth form provision, for both students and parents., and will be updated over the coming weeks with lots of information to support students in the choices they make, and in their daily learning. Please come back soon to see this exciting development, and lots of new pages.

Post 18 advice – student finance

Students considering going to university will need to apply for Student Finance to cover their tuition and help with their living costs. This happens in Year 13 once the student has submitted their UCAS application, although many students like to research what they are entitled to prior to this to help with the Post 18 decision making process. 

Students can start their Student Finance applications in the January or February before they go to university. They should aim to have completed their applications by the end of May to ensure their money is ready for the start of the university term in September/October. 

More information and the Student Finance application can be found at www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance.
