Applying to the Sixth Form

Applications for external students to join our Sixth Form in September 2024 are now closed. If you have any queries email

The majority of our students follow a course comprising of three A Level subjects. This, alongside the Extended Project Qualification is the optimal course structure for admission to Russell Group universities. On occasion, we do allow students to consider four subjects but there would need to be a clear case for this.

The grade requirement for entry into Sixth Form will be a minimum of five grade B, or grade 6, full GCSEs, to include at least a grade 5 in both mathematics and English language. Subjects may specify that you need a particular grade before you can take up the course, e.g. mathematics requires a grade 7 in mathematics. Students must pass their internal end of Year 12 exams in order to be guaranteed entry into Year 13.

Subjects on offer for 2024-25 are as follows:

3D Design Technology (AQA), Art (AQA), Biology (OCR), Chemistry (OCR), Classics (OCR), Computer Science, Drama (Pearson), Economics (AQA), English (OCR), Fashion and Textiles (AQA), Geography (AQA), Graphic Design (AQA), History (AQA), Mathematics (Pearson), Further Mathematics (OCR), Philosophy (AQA), Photography (AQA), Physical Education (OCR), Physics, Politics (AQA), Psychology (AQA), Sociology (AQA) and Spanish (AQA).
