Sixth Form Admissions

In our Sixth Form, we continue the school’s aims of high academic achievement and helping every student to engage positively with school life and develop to their full potential.

Our students are taught by subject specialists, and the vast majority achieve grades A*, A and B at A-Level. We have an excellent record of entry into the most competitive universities and degree courses.

The Sixth Form team takes individual advice and guidance very seriously on all aspects of Sixth Form life, beginning with the options process. Aspiring Sixth Formers need to consider their options wisely to choose a set of subjects that will engage them and play to their strengths. The school will take into consideration an applicant’s overall profile, including their GCSE results, before agreeing to them studying any particular set of subjects. We aim to help our students decide wisely, both about their participation in Sixth Form life and for their future careers and education.

All aspiring Sixth Formers need to apply to join our Sixth Form, including our current Year 11 students as well as those applying to join us from other schools. Full details of the admissions process can be found in the Determined Admissions Arrangements document available on this page. Please note that for external applicants, we have recently amended our admissions policy to prioritise disadvantaged students, such as those in care or in receipt of free school meals or pupil premium funding.

Our Sixth Form admissions deadline for applications to join Year 12 in September 2023 has now passed, and our online application form has closed. If you would like to be considered for a place in sixth form starting in September 2023 and either missed the original application deadline in November 2022 or applied on time but did not receive a conditional offer, there will be a further opportunity to make a ‘post-results’ application once GCSE results are published in August as detailed below.
