Sixth Form Application Timeline

All of the information you need in order to apply for the Sixth Form can be found under this section of the website. The links to the left provide an introduction to the Sixth Form, the entry requirements and further information.

In addition, there is an Information Evening in January which provides students and parents with the opportunity to discuss the Sixth Form and the A Level courses offered with members of staff.

The Sixth Form Entry requirement page has links to the A Level subject pages. These pages can also be found under the Teaching and Learning section of this website.

Each A Level page provides information about each of the courses offered at A Level as well as a link to the exam board specification.

The information for all subjects has been updated for courses starting in September 2018.

From September 2018 all subjects will be offering the new reformed A Level courses and that these will be two-year linear courses with examinations only at the end of Year 13.
