A Level options for September 2016
Applications for sixth form study are invited from our current students but also from students who are currently attending other schools. The sixth form prospectus and application form can be found by clicking the links on the right.

Applications can be made following the issue of results in August 2016 but students are reminded that the date for results issue is very late this year (Thursday 25th August) – this means that you will have very little time to make your decisions made before the 1st September.
Revision Guide for students
Students at Cullybackey College are being given access to our ‘Guide to Effective Revision’ over the next few days. This guide has been written to give our students some ideas and strategies about how they can plan their revision for the upcoming GCSE and A Level examinations. The revision guide also gives some advice to parents about how they can help to support their child through the busy exam season and includes a revision timetable that can be customised and used by students to plan the work that they need to do. A colour version of this guide can be downloaded here.
