Entry Requirements

As a basic entry requirement to join our Sixth Form, you must have achieved at least 6 GCSE subjects at Grade 6 or above including:

  • at least Grade 5 in English 
  • at least Grade 5 in Mathematics
  • the specific entry requirements for each of your subjects

Most applicants are advised to choose 3 subjects to study at A Level.  However, some applicants are welcome to discuss the option of 4 subjects if there are spaces on the courses.

Choosing to study the Extended Project Qualification or Core Mathematics will be an additional course choice.  Your study programme will also include timetabled supplementary study sessions and you will be expected to be involved in a Co-curricular activity such as: a volunteering or work experience placement; the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme; music lessons; or a regular sporting commitment.

All A Level courses are linear with examinations at the end of the two year course. Further details are given in the course descriptions.

Please note that if there are insufficient numbers, a course may not run.


Application Process

Following your application, we confirm with your school that you are on target to meet the entry requirements for the courses you wish to study by requesting a reference. Places will be offered purely on academic criteria. If you are on target to meet the entry requirements, you will be invited to a consultation meeting with a senior teacher in March to talk about your aspirations and allow us to get to know you.

We have a Taster Event in the Summer Term for you to speak to teachers and receive summer tasks to complete in preparation for your courses. 


Open Morning

You are welcome to attend our Open Morning on Thursday 13th January 2022 (9.00-10.30am). Booking details to follow.


Please note that all events are subject to the latest national advice and guidance.
