As we approach the Christmas holiday and following a number of enquiries, we thought we would send out a reminder that our Sixth Form application deadline is on Friday 9th January 2015. Our interview evenings are on the following evenings from 5.00 p.m. until 8.00 p.m. Students will be invited to these on a first come, first served basis, following the receipt of their application:
- Tuesday 13th January 2015
- Thursday 22nd January 2015
- Tuesday 10th February 2015
Please note that we now have a digital version of our Sixth Form Guide. Please click here. The Sixth Form application form can be found on page 25 of the Sixth Form Guide.
Our school website also has links to all of our Sixth Form admissions pages. We have also added an on-line application form this year, which can be accessed from the CRGS webpage (above) and also here. Should students prefer this method of application, they will be able to submit an application during the Christmas holiday, which will be saved straight onto our system.
All applications (on-line or paper) will be acknowledged by e-mail. For all applications during the Christmas holiday, this will take place during the first week of January.
Here is the link to our AS and A Level courses in UCAS Progress.
If you require further information about our Sixth Form or the application process, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Vivo Shop has now closed until after Christmas. If you have placed orders, please collect them after school, any day before Thursday.
Next Thursday on the 18th of December we will be holding a charity day for Pendleside Hospice and Cancer Research UK. You are able to come in your own clothes for the small price of £1, but it HAS to be Christmas themed, even if its just a bit of tinsel in your hair. You can also pay £1.50 to get out of either periods 1,2 & 4 to watch the schools Christmas show. Also on the Wednesday you can join a fun run and run either 1,3 or 5km, all you need to do is get a sponsorship form from Mr Thomas and start getting your sponsors. We’d love you all to get involved.
I’ve had some fantastic applications submitted so far by students who want to become Rhyddings ‘techsperts’. You have until we return after Christmas to get them in to me – find out more by clicking here.

During one of our sessions, one of the students expressed the wish to put together a hamper for the Oswaldtwistle Food Bank. This idea was quickly taken up by the other students in the group persuading their teacher to incorporate this as part of their course. Permission has been sought from the Senior Leadership Team and a letter is being sent home for parents’ co-operation in providing some packages/ tins of food and for permission to deliver the hamper once it has been filled. These students should be congratulated for their caring attitude which our social skills curriculum is designed to promote.
Just in time for Christmas
