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
- a sound performance in GCSE; we expect students to gain at least five grade 6s overall which should include Maths, English and a Science (regardless of the subjects to be taken at A Level). Typically, we require at least a grade 7 in subjects to be continued although this is higher in some subjects. Individual entry requirements for each subject can be found in the Options Booklet.
However, each application is considered individually and offers made accordingly.
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.
