Sixth Form Admissions Requirements

We will look at the top eight predicted GCSE grades, using the following points system:

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 of grade of 5 is required for English and Maths.


Conditional offer emails were sent out before Easter, provisionally confirming your choice of A Level subjects.

Conditional offers are made purely on the basis of predicted grades.

Offers are automatically confirmed on GCSE Results Day, Thursday 25th August 2022, if you achieve the qualifying point score (57 points)

If you change your mind about what A Levels you want to take between applying and the beginning of Y12, then just let us know.
