Sixth Form Entry INFORMATION

From UK Senior Schools

Entry into the Sixth Form is assessed in November by:

  • References from the current school

All candidates must be registered by mid-October. Places are offered in early December to successful candidates, subject to their meeting the normal GCSE qualifications for Sixth Form entry (a minimum of five grade 6s, which would usually include English and Mathematics).
