Entry to Year 12 (16+)
When selecting students to join our thriving Sixth Form, we look for independence, intellectual curiosity and creativity.
Students are asked to indicate the subjects they would like to study for A level. On Assessment Day, students complete online assessments in vocabulary, mathematics and non-verbal reasoning and a non-subject specific written paper testing critical thinking and communication. Candidates are selected for interview on the basis of their performance on assessment day, and return to STAHS for an interview with the Head and Head of Sixth Form.
Following assessment, successful candidates are made offers conditional on obtaining our required GCSE results for their chosen A level subjects – see the A level subject pages of our Sixth Form Prospectus for details of requirements. We require external students joining STAHS to achieve a minimum of grade 6 in Maths and in English, alongside the grade requirements in relevant GCSEs for their chosen A levels. To apply for a place for your child at the Sixth Form, please complete the Application Form electronically using the link below. Your application is confirmed by paying a non-refundable registration fee of £125. If you are on a low income and applying for bursary support we may be able to waive the application fee – please contact us for details.
The admissions process is kept under review and may be adapted according to circumstances at the time.
