Academic Requirements for Entry into 6th Form

The minimum academic requirements for entry of applicants into the Sixth Form are four GCSE passes at grades 7 and above, plus two GCSE passes at grade 6. Grades 7, 8 or 9, are required in the relevant GCSE subject to be studied at A Level. Each specific subject has its own requirements for grades to be achieved in relevant GCSE subjects (see below).

All students entering the Sixth Form will be required to have passed GCSE mathematics and English language with a minimum of a grade 6 (or an equivalent qualification recognised for tertiary education in the UK which will allow them to communicate effectively in spoken and written English and to understand spoken and written English without difficulty).

Exceptions to these requirements can be made by appeal in certain circumstances (e.g. illness, bereavement, equivalent qualifications).
