Our 6th Form College buzzes with enthusiasm, energy and ambition. We want students who share intellectual curiosity and are eager to fulfil their considerable promise.
Every potential student will have a general interview which includes a critical thinking exercise. Students will be asked to read a piece and examine the logic, consistency and persuasiveness of the arguments on either side of a debate.
An offer of a place at the 6th Form will be conditional on achieving a satisfactory school reference and the required results at GCSE or equivalent. Our offers are tailored to the individual applicant but, as a guide, we would require a minimum of 50 points for the eight best (I)GCSE results. Points will be calculated from the new 9 - 1 grading system or using the conversion table below. We require at least 7 points in any subject that they intend to study in the Sixth Form where that subject is already being studied at (I)GCSE. For Higher Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics we require at least 8 points (A* on the old system).
If a student wishes to study Further Maths or Modern Languages at A Level or Higher Level Maths or Modern Languages in the International Baccalaurate Diploma, they will be asked to sit an aptitude test in the subject followed by a discussion with the head of department.
Offers are based on the subject choices declared on the application form. Should students later decide to alter the choice of subjects, this will be subject to availability and further aptitude tests may be necessary.
A* - 8.5 Points
A - 7 Points
B - 5.5 Points
C - 4 Points
D - 3 Points
E - 2 Points
