Joining in the Sixth Form

For those joining the Sixth Form, selection is based on predicted grades, school reference and an interview. At Sixth Form, both day and boarding places are available.

For Sixth Form candidates, we recommend registration early in the Autumn Term of Year 11. We request a report and reference from current schools for all registered pupils at the end of October. Interviews are held in early to mid-November with places offered on 1 December.

Scholarship examinations, interviews and auditions are held in early November.

Entry Requirements

Sixth Form candidates should be predicted a minimum of three level 7s and three level 6s at I/GCSE. We expect applicants to achieve at least a level 7 in the subjects they wish to study at A Level (where appropriate).

Those living overseas and not taking I/GCSE papers may take our own entrance examinations in: English, Maths and a General Paper, by arrangement either at their current school or at a British Council office and will be interviewed by Skype. Candidates who do not have English as their first language should refer to the International Candidates page.
