Sixth Form Admissions

School Closure
Admission to the Sixth Form

I am sorry but we are unable to give any definitive information about admission to the Sixth Form at this time as we are awaiting confirmation from the government as to how GCSE grades will be awarded.

Once this information is available we will consider any adjustments that may be needed to our entry criteria and post any updates here.
