Sixth Form admissions

Prospective Sixth Form students are encouraged to visit the school in the Autumn Term. Application details, including a prospectus, can be obtained from the school office. The closing date for applications is April 30th, although late applicants can be considered any time up to September 30th. Prospective Sixth Formers will be invited to attend an induction programme in the Summer Term. 

Students should complete the appropriate application form and return it to the school. Up to an extra 30 students can be accepted into the Sixth Form from other schools, in addition to those already attending Year 11 in this school who achieve the Sixth Form entry requirements detailed below. The Sixth Form does not give priority to applicants from pupils enrolled at particular schools.

Places on Level 2 and Level 3 courses can normally be offered to applicants who meet the minimum course requirements. Our Sixth Form entry requirements are as follows: 

Length of course Entry 

Level 2



1 year Minimum of 2 x GCSEs at Grade D (or equivalent) 

Level 3


A Levels 


2 years 5 x GCSEs

studied at A Level and Grade 4 in English and Maths)


Agreements for appeals

Should there be more candidates of the required level than places, selections will be based on GCSE performance, with priority being given to Children in Public Care.

If it is not possible to offer your child a place, details of the appeals process will be forwarded to you by the school.
