Why do we have an Elite Group at Rainhill Sixth Form?
When you are a high achiever, we recognise that your journey is a little steeper. Different pathways to your peers open up post 18, but so does the competition with other elite students across the country. You will face a more rigorous application process with admissions tests to sit and interviews to master. Here at Rainhill Sixth Form we want to ensure that you are fully prepared and supported from day one. This is why we have the Elite Group.
How do I become a member of the Elite Group?
The Elite Group is chosen at the start of Year 12. The Sixth Form Leadership team select the top performing students, based on their GCSE results, and invite them to an initial meeting.
What opportunities and support do I get in the Elite group at Rainhill Sixth Form?
Being small and selective, the Elite Group can fully focus on supporting you as in individual.
Half termly mentor meetings are held to support your academic progression and develop your experiences in and around the Sixth Form.
We also offer a number of opportunities to make sure you are fully prepared for your next step:

- Oxbridge application workshops with the Cambridge outreach officer;
- Oxbridge Conference at Aintree Racecourse;
