The overall entry requirements for Sixth Form are:

  • 46 points from your eight best full GCSEs. We will accept one non-GCSE equivalent grade in replace of a GCSE within the points total. Short courses, or GCSEs at grade 4 or below, will not be included in the points score; and
  • A minimum of grade 5 in Maths and English; and
  • A minimum of two GCSEs at grade 7 or above.

In addition to the overall entry requirements for Sixth Form, each A Level subject has minimum GCSE subject requirements.  We recommend you read our Sixth Form Prospectus and the Course Outlines for each subject before making an application.

All students will begin Year 12 with four A Level subjects.  Please note that students wishing to study Further Maths must also study Maths at A Level.  Due to similarities in course content, students cannot choose to study both Economics and Business Studies at A Level.
