Sixth Form Admission

Admission into Sixth Form

The minimum academic requirement for entry into the Sixth Form from September 2020 is an Attainment 8 score of at least 60 (calculated from the best 8 GCSE grades), which must include Mathematics and English Language at least to grade 6.

Students wishing to study the Sciences and/or Mathematics at A Level must have gained at least a grade 7 in their GCSE course.

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

Applicants from other schools should complete and submit an online application by Friday 7th February 2020.
