ADMISSIONS

We are delighted that you are considering Southend High School for Girls (SHSG) Sixth Form for your A Level studies.  We are a vibrant and high-performing grammar school with an excellent track record of academic success.  We pride ourselves on offering a varied curriculum with 26 A Level subjects to choose from, alongside superb extra and super-curricular opportunities for our students.

The deadline for applications for admission to Sixth Form in September 2022 was 31st January.  We are unable to accept late applications.

Students who submitted their application prior to the deadline have now been contacted with the outcome of their application. Successful applicants have been invited to a compulsory Offer Holder Event in the summer term on the 4th and 5th July 2022.

Applicants who have missed the deadline will be able to apply for any remaining places in Sixth Form on GCSE Results Day in August.  More information regarding the process for applying will be available on our website at the end of the academic year in July.

If you have any questions regarding Sixth Form admissions, please email us at sixthform@shsg.org .

Sixth Form Entry Requirements

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.
