In order to gain entry into our Sixth Form, you will need a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grades 9-4 for the Applied pathway, including grade 4 in both English and Maths. For individual subjects, a grade 6 will guarantee entry onto the majority of courses however, please see individual subjects in the prospectus for specific entry criteria.
Decisions about entry into the Sixth Form are never based solely on a student’s academic profile. Before offering a place, we also consider an individual’s contribution to school life, behavioural and attendance record, as well as the ability to benefit from two years of study with us.
External applicants to the Sixth Form are welcomed, in addition to meeting the academic requirements above, external applicants will be invited to interview by the Head of Sixth Form.
Conditional offers are based on predicted grades; actual places are not confirmed until GCSE results are announced. This may mean that some courses become oversubscribed and if there are more applicants than places available then we will allocate places according to the oversubscription criteria below:
Borderline cases will be looked at closely. In such cases the general level of academic achievement will be looked at, as well as an estimate of your potential and ability to cope with A-Level and Level 3 courses.
