How to Apply

The following process outlines what you need to do and how we will support you to make the best choice for your future:

  • Read the information about the subjects in the prospectus carefully and talk to your teachers about them.
  • Think about the subjects you are most interested in. Students are always successful at the subjects they enjoy and can do.
  • Talk to your teachers about your ability and your estimated grades. Ability is also essential for success.
  • If you already think you know what you want to do at University or a future career find out if there are any subjects you have to study. The UCAS website will help you.
  • Attend our Open evening as this will be an opportunity to speak to Subject Leaders about the courses on offer.

To Apply For A Place In Sixth Form:

  • Complete a Sixth Form Application Form. You can complete below online and submit.  (Paper copy application forms are also available from the school office if you prefer).
  • If you have a good record of behaviour and attendance, you will be invited to attend a short interview in the Summer Term where you will be given an offer of a place in our Sixth Form, which is conditional on results.
  • If you wish to change your options after this time, we will do all we can to support you but after the timetable is written this will only be possible if a class is not full and the subjects you wish to study are not timetabled at the same time.
  • We will consider late applications submitted until August in some circumstances.
