Entry at 16+
When selecting students to join our thriving Sixth Form, we look for independence, intellectual curiosity and creativity.
Students are asked to indicate three or four subjects they would like to study for A level. On assessment day, students are interviewed by subject teachers who may set tasks as discussion starters. Students also have a general interview with the Director of Sixth Form. All those coming for interview will find themselves in stimulating intellectual discussion. All staff involved enjoy the opportunity to engage with the refreshing new perspectives that our prospective students have.
Following assessment, successful candidates are made offers conditional on obtaining our required GCSE results for their chosen A Level subjects:
- A minimum of Grade 8 in Mathematics is required for A Level study of Mathematics and/or Economics
- A minimum of Grade 8 in Mathematics and Grade 8 in Physics is required for the A Level study of Physics
- A minimum of Grade 7 is required for A Level study of any other course taken at GCSE
- A minimum of Grade 7 is required in supporting subjects for A Level study of a course not taken at GCSE.
To register your child for a place at the Sixth Form, please complete the Registration Form, either electronically using the link below or by sending a hard copy to us. Your registration is confirmed by paying a non-refundable registration fee of £100. This can be done by bank transfer using the account details on the Registration Form, or by sending a cheque with your child’s name written on the back as the reference.
