Return to Sixth Form


Sixth Form Applications For 2021 Entry (Closed) : 

The online application system is now closed.  Applications for 2022 will open in November this year.    Please note there is no entrance exam to join the sixth form and successful applicants are selected based on subject choice.  An updated ‘Guide to Courses’ and ‘Subject Grid’ are available via the link to the right.

Due to Covid 19, we were unable to hold our Open Afternoon this year and we will not be able to accommodate individual visits to the school or tours. An introductory video is available below, as is a short video showing the site, which was recorded during lockdown earlier this year.

Conditions of entry to the Sixth Form

The Admission Arrangements for the Sixth Form are contained within the School’s Admissions Arrangements.

  • All applicants to Year 12 must have a minimum of five Grade 6s at GCSE, with a minimum of Grade 5 in English Language and Maths if they are not part of the five.
  • In addition, individual subjects will have their own specific requirements, which must also be met. Please see the course outlines for full details.

In a typical year there will be approximately 500 applications for the additional places, so please be aware that meeting the entry requirements does not guarantee a place.
