Entry into Year 12 will require a minimum of 57 points from the top eight GCSEs. A minimum grade of 5 is required for English and Maths.

*IGCSEs and GCSEs that have not yet transferred to the new system are graded using the old A*-C scale

Admissions Process

Sixth Form admissions have now closed for 2018 entry however any student who achieves highly in their GCSEs (above 57 points) is encouraged to call us on GCSE results morning, in the event that any places become available.
