Please ensure you have checked our Entry Requirements and Option Lines below to ensure that you meet the required grades and that the subjects you wish to study are available.

Entry Requirements into Sixth Form

The minimum academic requirement for entry into the Sixth Form from September 2018 is five GCSE passes, four at Grade 6(B) and one at Grade 5(C). All students must have a minimum Grade 5(C) in English Language and Mathematics and a minimum Grade 6(B) in the subjects to be studied. Additional academic requirements apply as set out below.

Students wishing to study two Sciences at A Level must have gained a minimum of grade 6(B) in their GCSE Science course.

Students who wish to study Psychology, Sociology or Government and Politics but have not had the opportunity to take a GCSE in the subject, must have at least a grade 6 in English Language. Applicants who wish to study Economics, Business or Computer Science but have not had the opportunity to take a GCSE in the subject, must have at least a grade 6 in Mathematics.

These requirements should be read in conjunction with the Sixth Form Admissions Policy.

Applicants who have completed their secondary education in schools other than in England and Wales and have taken I.G.C.S.E. or O-level qualifications will be subject to the same requirements as stated above. Students who take qualifications other than G.C.S.E., I.G.C.S.E. or O-level must have equivalent qualifications as defined and verified by NARIC (www.ecctis.co.uk/naric) and be able to demonstrate that they are working at a level comparable to the minimum academic requirement for entry into the sixth form. Equivalent qualifications will only be accepted if the course content provides suitable preparation for A Level study and students will only be enrolled once qualifications have been verified in writing. It is the responsibility of the applicant to prove the equivalence of their examination results.

It is expected that the majority of students will be enrolled from those who have completed Year 11 at the school (internal applicants).
