Admissions

Admissions journey

Entrance to the Sixth Form will be based upon GCSE results of 5 x Grades 9-6 (A*-B equivalent) and preferably a Grade 7 or above in the subjects to be studied at A level.

Conditional offers will be made upon the basis of predicted grades and we will also take into consideration a school reference and recent reports. Candidates will also be required to undertake an interview with our Director of Sixth Form. Offers will be confirmed further to final GCSE results.

Overseas Applications

Entry assessments

Boys and girls will be required to sit an online test in English and Mathematics. We will also invite applicants to an online interview as part of the admissions process. School reports should be submitted at the point of application.

Sixth Form

In addition to these entry assessments, international pupils applying for our Sixth Form will also be required to complete two subject papers for the subjects they wish to study at A level. The selected subjects must have been studied for a minimum of two years.
