Applying to TWGSB6

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 48 points from your best eight GCSE grades. As a selective school, we would hope that our students would achieve nothing less than a 5 in any remaining GCSEs. 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.
