Admissions into Year 12 for Entry 2024
The stages of applying for Sixth Form are:
Stage 1 - Attendance at Open evening on Thursday 16th November 2023
Parents and prospective students, who are currently in Year 11, are welcome to join us for Sixth Form presentations and to meet departmental staff and students between 4.45pm and 8.00pm on Thursday 16th November 2023.
If you were unable to attend our Open Evening, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Stage 2 - Subject Sampling Application - Deadline Monday 4th December 2023
Subject Sampling Evening is a required stage in our application process for Sixth Form. Following our Open Evening in November, all students wishing to apply for Sixth Form must apply to be part of this event which takes place on Thursday 18th January 2024.
Students, you should choose between 5 and 7 subjects that you are considering taking in Sixth Form to trial at this event, including those you may be taking at GCSE, to fully appreciate the step-up in work that is required to achieve your intended A level grades.
Please note this IS NOT your formal application to Sixth Form - this comes later. The deadline to apply for subject sampling is Monday 4th December 2023.
Stage 3 - Attendance at Subject Sampling Evening on Thursday 18th January 2024
During the evening each student experiences a 'sample' 25 minute lesson in each of their chosen 7 subjects. This will help inform their 4 subject choices for A Level. Our last Subject Sampling Evening was attended by over 500 students and the evening went extremely well, with feedback from those attended being very positive. We hope it will help all students who attend to make their final decisions about which 4 subjects to choose to study in Year 12.
Attendance at this event forms an essential part of the Admissions Process.
Stage 4 - Completion of the Admission Form
To ensure that you apply for the right subjects, please check our GCSE entry requirements for each subject which can be found here.
To apply for your Sixth Form place you must have completed the Year 12 Admission Form for entry in September 202 before 4pm on Monday 26th February 2024. Applications received after this date will be classed as 'late'. Please contact us if you wish to apply.
Additional Tasks: Applicants for Computer Science, Photography and Drama & Theatre - all have a prerequisite task that must be completed also by 4pm on Friday 8th March 2024.
Applicants for DT - all have a prerequisite task that must be completed also by 4pm on Friday 5th July 2024. Details for these tasks will be published after subject sampling.
If you are not studying DT GCSE at present i.e. because your current school does not provide this as an option then we are prepared to offer an opportunity for consideration by way of a small design task. This will give us an idea of your current skills and abilities. Please email email@example.com for more details.
