5 Assessment for entry in September 2021

Interviews for entry to Year 12 are held in November/December and March

Year 12 (Sixth Form) Entry Requirements

Following a successful interview, a provisional offer of a place will be made which is dependent on:

  • the receipt of a satisfactory reference from your daughter’s current school
  • the achievement of good GCSE results.

Typically, we require at least a grade 7 in the subjects to be continued and grade 6 or better in at least five subjects which should include Maths, English and a Science (regardless of the subjects to be taken at A level).

In practice this can mean that you would need more than five GCSEs at grade 6 or above.

Example 1

To study History, Geography, French and Biology, a grade 7 or higher is required in these four subjects plus at least a grade 6 in Maths and English.

Example 2

To take Psychology, English, Maths and History, a grade 7 or higher is required in History, English and Maths and at least a grade 6 in two other subjects including a Science.

However, each application is considered individually and offers made accordingly.

6 Results

For entry to Year 12, provisional offers are made which are confirmed on GCSE results day.

7 Acceptance of an Offer

When the provisional offer is made, you will be asked to confirm the subjects which your daughter wishes to study and to sign the parent contract.

You will be asked to contact us on GCSE results day to notify us of the grades your daughter has achieved and, provided she has met the requirements specified in your offer letter, the provisional offer will be confirmed straightaway. Should she not meet the entry requirements, it may be possible to offer courses in alternative subjects and we would be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.

8 Induction Programme

An induction day for those holding provisional offers is held in July.
