Sixth Form Entry

We welcome Sixth Form applications from students who are currently studying GCSEs (or equivalents, if abroad) in Year 11. Students should be aged between 15 years and nine months and 17 years and three months on 1 September in the year of entry.

Bursary places are also available in the Sixth Form. Further details of these can be found in the Fees and Assistance section.

Open Events

Our dedicated Sixth Form open event has already taken place for this academic year, however, our whole school open events are still a great chance to view and get a feel for the entire school. Our next whole school open event takes place on: 

  • Whole School Open Evening ~ Thursday 9 May 2024, 4:30pm – 7:00pm

In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding the Sixth Form, do not hesitate to get in touch with the Admissions Department. 


Assessment Process

We base our judgements for entry on an Assessment Day. These days are tailored to suit the likely combination of subjects indicated by candidates. We are keen to ensure that every candidate has an equal chance of success based on potential. For this reason, some of the assessments that take place are based on new stimulus material covering topics candidates will not have met before, whereas others assess current knowledge. The day also includes an interview to allow us to gain a clear picture of their co-curricular interests and academic passions.

Conditional offers are made on the basis of performance on the Assessment Day. Typically, we set offers of a student achieving an average of a grade 7 (equivalent to an A in the old grading system) across his GCSE subjects, with at least a grade 8 in the subjects they are choosing to study.
