6th Form Admissions

Sixth Form Admissions Requirements 2018


Due to the changes to GCSEs, which are now graded on a 9-1 scale*, we have adjusted our points system for entry into Sixth Form. We will look at the top eight predicted GCSE grades, using the following points system:

Old GCSEs/IGSEs Numerical grades for new GCSEs
Grade A* A B C 9 8 7 6
Worth 8.5 7 5.5 4 9 8 7 6


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
