Admissions

Between 30-50% our sixth form students join us in Year 12. Students may be admitted into the sixth form irrespective of where you live, but you 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. 

We encourage you to apply if you are ambitious, have a love for learning and want to be a part of something special, and we look forward to receiving your application.

If you are interested in joining SGGS Sixth Form but are not currently a student here, we ask that you please complete the application form (which you can download at the bottom of this page) and return it to:

Sixth Form Admissions
Stratford Girls' Grammar School
Stratford-upon-Avon
CV37 9HA

Alternatively send it to the school via email to admissions@sggs.org.uk

Once received, our Sixth Form team will contact you about your application. If you do not hear from us, please do let us know! We know that plans can sometimes change, so please do get in touch if you need further assistance.

 

What are the Entry Criteria to Join SGGS Sixth Form?

Please remember that entry to our Year 12 is on the basis of academic ability which is demonstrated by achievement at GCSE. Confirmed places in Year 12 can therefore only be allocated following GCSE Results Day in August.  The School’s Admissions Committee will make the final decision on admissions to Year 12 on GCSE Results Day. 

To obtain a place in Year 12, you will need:

  • a minimum of 54 points from your best eight GCSE results using the new GCSE points system of Grades 9-1.
  • Maths and English Language GCSE at Grade 6 or above.
  • we would prefer you to achieve at least a GCSE Grade 7 (or A and above) in the subject - or a specified equivalent - you wish to take for A-level.

(For GCSEs receiving grades from the previous grading system, the following conversions will apply: A*=8, A=7, B=6, C=5, etc).

For more details on our admissions processes, please see our Admissions Policy.
 

Supporting Students

We are committed to supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds within our admissions criteria. To obtain a place in Year 12 disadvantaged students require a minimum of 51 points from their best eight GCSE results using the new GCSE points system of Grades 9-1 as shown above.

 

What Happens on Results Day?

New Students

Once you have collected your results, you will come to SGGS Sixth Form in the afternoon to meet with our Sixth Form Team.  They will check that your results meet the entry criteria and ask you to confirm your subject choices for A-level.  You will complete our Enrolment Form and collect some information to take away with you, and we will then welcome you on site in September for the Sixth Form Induction Day.

Internal Students

Once you have collected your results, you will go straight to the SGGS Sixth Form, where you will re-confirm the subject choices you made during your transition discussions, or discuss any changes you might like to make.  You will complete our Enrolment Form and accept your place.  You will take some information away with you and we will then welcome you on site in September for the Sixth Form Induction Day.
 

 

What if You Don't Meet Our Entry Criteria?

New Students

If you have narrowly missed our entry criteria but would still like to be considered for a place at SGGS Sixth Form, do please still come along on Results Day in the afternoon. Our Sixth Form Team will meet with you and review your position.  Your application will then be passed to our Admissions Panel, who meet later that day, and their decision will be shared with you shortly afterwards.

Internal Students

Supporting our students is of paramount importance.  Whatever your outcome on Results Day, we are here to support you and help you find the best way forward for you.  Members of staff who are familiar to you will be ready to share their expertise and help to guide you to make the right decisions.  Your Head of House will be on hand to have important conversations about your next steps, members of our SLT will be available as well of course as the Sixth Form Team who will be able to share relevant information about A-levels. 

 

The 16-19 Bursary Fund

The purpose of the Bursary Fund is to support young people aged 16-19 in full time education who face financial barriers to participation, such as costs of transport, food or equipment. It is made up of two parts: a bursary of £1,200 a year to the most vulnerable young people and a discretionary fund for schools and colleges to distribute. 

Please email the school at admissions@sggs.org.uk for more advice and information. You can find out more about our students' academic success on the Results page of our website.
