Entry Criteria

For entry into the Sixth Form to study 3 A' Levels, students are required to achieve 6 grades at 9-5 (or where applicable A*-C) including English and mathematics at Grade 5 or above.

In exceptional cases, students that do not reach the entry criteria based on their attainment in English or mathematics will be admitted to the 6th form with the addition of GCSE retake classes in the appropriate subject to their timetable.

While we would encourage students to study 3 A' Levels, in exceptional cases and following conversation at interview we may support a student to study 4. All students will have the option to study for the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) alongside their A' Levels.

Although a 6 or B grade is recommended in any subject that a student wishes to continue at A Level, all students applying to the Sixth Form will benefit from an interview in order to discuss entry criteria for specific subjects and to ensure that their subject choices match their goals and aspirations.

Students wishing to study further mathematics require a grade 7 in the subject at GCSE.
