"Welcome to the Stephen Perse Sixth Form admissions pages. We want to make sure you have all the information you need when making your decision, so we’ve outlined the process in 5 simple steps for you below."
- Helen Roberts, Admissions Registrar
Step 1: Get to know us
We know what we’re looking for in a Stephen Perse student - someone motivated and curious with academic potential. But what are you looking for?
The more you know about us, the easier it will be to decide if we’re right for you. So take a good
look through these pages - from our academic courses and enrichment programme to our boarding houses and Cambridge campus - and get to know us better.
Not sure where to start? Read the Welcome Letter from our Head of sixth form, or download a Prospectus for a simple overview of who we are and what we offer.
Step 2: Visit the Sixth Form
Our Open Events provide the ideal starting point - they’re purposely designed to give you all the information you need when you’re choosing a sixth form. You’ll hear talks from our leaders, see what lessons look like, discover our varied enrichment programme, and meet plenty of students and subject teachers along the way. They’ll be able to answer any questions and share what life is like at the Stephen Perse Sixth Form.
We are also happy to show you around our Sixth Form campus on a normal day, if there aren’t any upcoming Open Events. And for international students and parents who can’t visit our campus in person, we are happy to arrange phone calls with our Head of Sixth Form and/or Head of Boarding. We understand how difficult it can be to choose a sixth form from far away - we’re here to make your decision easier.
Step 3: Note key dates
If you’re thinking about registering for a place at our sixth form, read through our admissions
process, entry requirements and jot down those key dates so that you know exactly what to
Step 4: Check scholarships
If you want to apply for a scholarship at the Stephen Perse Sixth Form, you’ll need to do so at
the same time as applying for a place. So it’s worth having a good look at the scholarships on
offer before you begin the application process.
We also offer financial assistance up to 100% of the fees. We have recently been able to
expand this thanks to a very generous legacy.
Step 5: Register for a place
Use our online admissions portal to register for a place at the Stephen Perse Sixth Form. Our new paperless process allows you to complete forms, upload documents, schedule interviews and make payments quickly and easily. You can then track the status of your sixth form application using the portal anytime, anywhere, from any device.
If you get stuck at any point in the admissions process, or if you have questions that aren’t
answered on these pages (don’t forget to check our Admissions FAQs) please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Admissions team.
