Academic Requirements

Generally, because of the high level of studying required for 'A' Levels, and because it is important that a student chooses a course which is within his/her ability, entry to the Sixth Form is dependent on both of the following:

  1. Pupils must obtain at least 5 C grades or above at GCSE but, in addition to this, pupils should also meet the requirements of the subjects they wish to study.
  2. In order to continue on to A2, a pass is expected at AS. (Please see individual course requirements)

It is also expected that pupils re-sit GCSE English & Maths if they do not gain a grade C.

All applicants for the Sixth Form will have a personal meeting with one of the sixth form team to discuss choices of 'A' Levels after half term, in February. Parents are invited to attend these meetings if they wish.
