COVID-19 UPDATE: School will be closed from Friday 20th March until further notice. Lessons will continue remotely and work is being set for completion at home. We will be keeping our website and social media updated during this period. Please use email wherever possible, or leave a phone message (messages will be monitored during normal working hours).

Year 12 Admissions

Applications for Sixth Form admission are usually required by the end of January in the year of entry (e.g. 29th January 2021 for September 2021 entry) but we are happy to consider later applications on merit.

Entrance Assessments

Any pupil who wishes to join in Year 12 will be interviewed by a senior member of staff, will tour the school and, where possible, meet the Head of Sixth Form and the Heads of Departments of the subjects that the pupil wishes to study at A Level.

We will request references from the current school and candidates are normally required to achieve a minimum of six GCSEs at grades 9 to 5, with a grade 6 or above in the subjects they wish to study at A Level.
