We are still accepting applications to our Sixth Form, however please be aware that applications will be considered late (our deadline was 27th January) and that we are operating waiting lists for certain subjects due to a high number of applications

We welcome applications from both internal and external candidates, every year we see students joining us from a variety of different schools, both state and independent. This year we have had applications from over 20 different schools. Normally you are welcome to come for a visit and look around our Sixth Form, however please be aware that given the current circumstances this is unfortunately not available. However, once restrictions have been lifted, if you wish to look round then please do contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Our Open Evening in November was an opportunity to hear from the Headteacher and the Head of Sixth Form as well as being able to talk to the relevant heads of department and individual teachers. If you were unable to attend this evening and have any questions then please do contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Details of the courses that we offer are found in our prospectus under the tab 'Sixth Form Courses'. Please note that low student numbers opting for a subject or timetabling restrictions, may mean that certain courses or combinations of courses are not available. We will be able to provide confirmation of choices when all applicants are interviewed around March.

Entry Requirements:

The standard entry requirement for all of our sixth form courses is 8 GCSEs (or equivalent) including a minimum of grade 4 in five subjects which must include English and Maths. Please note that there are specific entry requirements for certain subjects which can be found at the bottom of each subject page in our prospectus found under 'Sixth Form Courses'.

How to choose your subjects: 

There are 3 things that should be considered when making subject choices:


  1. Interest in the subject
  2. Predicted grades
  3. Future plans and combination of subjects - in order to help with this then we strongly recommend looking at the website https://www.informedchoices.ac.uk/, however please be aware that not all subjects are included.


It is vital that students are guided onto the most appropriate courses in order to facilitate future career options and to ensure they select subjects where they will be successful. It is for this reason that all applicants are interviewed to review their options and why we have certain subject specific entry requirements. Further interviews may take place in August or September to adjust student choices based on their GCSE attainment.

When completing the application form it is very important that subjects are entered in order of preference.
