Sixth Form


September 2021 entry:

In order to ensure all students have a chance to be successful we insist on a minimum level of performance at GCSE. You should obtain at least 46 points (normally 48 points; changed for 2021 entry) from your best 8 GCSE grades with no less than a grade 5 in English Language and Mathematics. Students wishing to study Mathematics at A Level must have a minimum of grade 7 at GCSE. For other subjects at least a grade 6 is required in the subject the student wishes to study at A Level or in a closely related subject for those subjects that are new to the curriculum in the Sixth Form. See the course pages in the Sixth Form Prospectus for the requirements for specific subjects offered at A Level.
