Our policy is that we will normally only accept students with five grade Cs and above at GCSE in at least 4 different subjects, one of which must be English Language or Literature. The requirements for specific subjects are indicated against each subject.


All of our students have an erichment lesson where they are encouraged to study more widely or to undertake work experience or volunteering. Students are also encouraged to re-sit GCSE Maths in November of Year 12 if they do not have a grade C.


If you are interested in joining the Sixth Form in September please contact Miss Tyers as above.
