Applying to Sixth Form 2018/2019

We are still accepting applications to our Sixth Form for admission in September 2018. 

If you are an external student you will need to complete our online student application form.   Please ensure you have read the information on this page before you apply.

If you are an existing SHSG student in Year 11, you do not need to complete an online application form.  You will need to complete an A Level Options Form instead which has been sent to your school email address.

Entry Requirements

The entry requirements for admission into Sixth Form  for September 2018 are:

  • 50 points from your best eight full GCSEs, and
  • A minimum of grade 5 in Maths and English.  

Your GCSE grade will be your equivalent points score i.e. grade 7 = 7 points.  We do not include any points from GCSEs grade 4 or below in your overall points score.  We will also not include points from short courses. 

In addition to the general Sixth Form entry requirements, each A Level subject has specific GCSE grade requirements.  These can be found in our prospectus or you can click on the tab below for more information.  In a slight change to the prospectus, the entry requirement for Product Design is a grade B with the equivalent points score of 6.

Subject Choices

Most students will study three A Levels.  Some will study four depending on their GCSE grades.   Our subjects are organised into option blocks - please click on tab below to view the option blocks for 2018 - 19.  Students can only choose one subject in each option block and a maximum of four options.

Students wishing to study Further Maths must select four A Levels - one of which must be Maths.    Students are not permitted to study both Economics and Business Studies as part of their subject combination.


Application Process

Once we have received your application, we will contact your current school for a reference to confirm your predicted GCSE grades.  In most cases, schools will use your mock GCSE examination results as a basis for predicted grades.  Once we have received a reference from your school, we will contact you via email to confirm whether we can offer you a conditional place at Sixth Form for September 2018.  We expect the majority of offers to be made by Easter.

When you are ready to apply, you can access our online application here.
