How to apply

All students entering the Sixth Form follow a weekly timetable of twenty-five 1 hour periods.

As well as examination courses, students’ programmes normally include short courses, physical activities/work experience or community involvement and private study. Many combinations of courses are available, but whilst the School will endeavour to satisfy every reasonable request, staffing and other considerations may rule out some options.

Entry Requirements

Students joining the Sixth Form should have achieved a minimum of 6 A*-C passes at GCSE, with B grades or higher in those subjects which will support their choice of AS/A Level courses (in English Language and Mathematics, a grade 4 is considered equivalent to a grade C).  Please see individual course outlines on the course information page for further details. In addition Students who wish to take two or more from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Further Maths will need at least one A grade in a relevant science or Maths GCSE.
