Admissions Criteria and Applications
Sixth Form Admissions Criteria
All students who join our Sixth Form are expected to follow 3 A Level courses or a BTEC Extended Diploma.
In order to achieve entry into our Sixth Form, students must meet the required entry criteria for each of the courses they wish to study in the Sixth Form. In most cases this will be at least a GCSE grade 6 in their chosen subjects. Please see the Sixth Form Prospectus for entry criteria for individual courses. Students studying other qualifications such as Scottish Highers or qualifications from outside the UK should contact our Sixth Form Team, firstname.lastname@example.org, for further guidance.
The capacity of the Academy’s accommodation for Year 12 students is 80 places. Places will be allocated in the following order of priority:
- Looked after and previously looked after children who meet the entry criteria
- Applications from Internal students who meet the academic entry criteria
- Applications from external students who meet the academic entry criteria
If applications which meet these criteria exceed the number that can be offered, applicants will be ranked by academic ability based on their achieved outcomes for their GCSEs. We will require external applicants to provide copies of examination results before taking up places. Meeting the requirements of any course is no guarantee that the applicant will automatically be offered a place on his or her preferred combination of courses. Entry into Year 12 will depend upon the availability of space on courses and will be subject to interview and positive references, with a focus on excellent behaviour, attendance and punctuality on current programmes of study.
