Sixth Form Admissions 2017

Courses in the Sixth Form require a high level of intellectual ability and commitment to work; it is paramount that students select courses that are appropriate to their ability. A good guide to identify the most suitable pathway is to use the GCSE total point score (TPS) system; this gives a true reflection of a student’s current ability and has proved a reliable tool in deciding on the correct courses.

To join the Sixth Form in September 2017 students need to meet the following criteria:

  • Have a minimum TPS of 32
  • Meet the subject specific entry criteria
  • Have a full programme of study, this entails 3 or 4 Level 3 qualifications (A level courses or equivalent)
