Admissions to Sixth Form

Application to the Sixth Form is open to all students, irrespective of their previous place of study.

Students wishing to study at A Level must have gained at least 5 Grade 5+ passes at GCSE Level, including English Language and Mathematics, with at least a Grade 6 in any subject they wish to study at A Level. In the case of subjects not previously studied, subject specific criteria will apply. The majority of students will apply to study 3 A Levels, with the exception of any outstanding mathematicians (achieving 8+ at GCSE) who may wish to study Further Maths as a fourth A Level.  

Students wishing to study for the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Applied Science would be expected to have at least 5 Grade 5 passes at GCSE Level including Science.

All students progressing from Year 12 to Year 13 are expected to have attendance of 95% or higher.  For A Level students, progression to Year 13 is dependent on at least a Grade D in Year 12.  BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma students are expected to be on track to achieve MMM in order to progress to year 13. 

The Admission Number is currently 150.
