Sixth Form Admissions

Each year we will welcome around 50 new pupils into the Sixth Form (known as 'Specialists') to study either the A level or IBDP curriculum as a boarder or as a day pupil. Applicants are asked to stipulate their choice in their application.

Competition for places is strong. As a guide, we would expect successful candidates to gain a high proportion of 8s and 9s at (I)GCSE or equivalent. Although our offers will be unconditional, subject choice for A Levels or at higher level in the IBDP will be dependent on certain grades achieved at (I)GCSE (or equivalent).

We welcome candidates with particular interests and talents in art, drama, music, sport and many other fields.
