How to apply


Admission to our Sixth Form is outlined in our Admissions Policy which is updated each year.

Students will select three subjects that they will study over a two-year linear course with all formal examinations taken at the end of Year 13.  We have generic minimum entry requirements that all students must meet, and additional requirements for each individual subject they wish to study.

Entry Requirements:

  1. Meet the entry requirements for each of three chosen subjects
  2. Gain at least a grade 4 in 2 or more other subjects (including Maths or English Language)
  3. Show excellent attendance, motivation and attitude.

Specific Requirements are listed in the Sixth Form Prospectus.

Students achieving a level four in English and Maths will be entered for the qualification as part of their Sixth Form curriculum.

For students who are unable to meet these entry requirements at the end of Year 11 but feel that Advanced Level study will be in their long term best interests, we offer a one year Level 2 ‘Bridging Course’. This is a new innovation for the school and whilst it does not guarantee entry to Advanced Level study, is specifically designed to help students to meet the entry requirements.

In order to support students who wish to study at A level but do not quite meet the entry requirements we will offer a level 2 one year bridging course next year. This will consist of 4 or 5 one year GCSE courses, based around resit English and Maths, often an issue for those missing the Level 3 entry requirements, and 3 other GCSE courses. These might be, for example, GCSE Sociology, BTEC Applied Science and Cambridge National Creative iMedia. The course will be bespoke and shaped around those who apply.

Entry Requirements:

  1. Gain at least a grade 4 in 2 or more subjects.
  2. Show excellent attendance, motivation and attitude.
