Almost half our sixth form students join us in Year 12. Students may be admitted into the sixth form irrespective of where they live, but they must be able to attend school from 8.50am – 4.00pm each day, and be prepared to play a full part in the life of the school.
Entry to Year 12 is on the basis of academic ability demonstrated by achievement at GCSE. Confirmed places in Year 12 can therefore only be allocated following GCSE Results Day in August. To obtain a place in Year 12 students require a minimum of 54 points from their best eight GCSE results using the new GCSE points system of Grades 9-1. (For GCSEs receiving grades from the previous grading system the following conversions will apply: A*=8, A=7, B=6, C=5, etc). Maths and English Language GCSE are required at Grade 6 or above. To be able to take a particular post-16 subject we would prefer students to achieve at least an A (or 7 and above) grade at GCSE in that subject (or a specified equivalent subject). The School’s Admissions Committee will make the final decision on admissions to Year 12. For more details, see our Admissions Policy.
