Sixth Form Entry

PLEASE NOTE: Applications for September 2024 entry into Sixth Form are now closed.

GCSE results are always taken into account as well as taking part in a Sixth Form Insight taster day. Prospective students are invited into school for the day for interviews with the Head and Senior staff members as well as Heads of Department of their chosen A Level subjects. Students will have the opportunity to discuss enrichment and career opportunities as well as spend time with current Sixth Formers.

The entry requirements for Sixth Form are:

  • Grade 7 or above in subjects to be studied at A-level (or in a closely-related subject when GCSE not available) and;
  • Grade 6 or above in all other GCSE subjects (or a very high Grade 5). Most students will have taken at least 9 GCSEs.
