Sixth Form Admissions Requirements 2018

Due to the changes to GCSEs, which are now graded on a 9-1 scale*, we have adjusted our points system for entry into Sixth Form. We will look at the top eight predicted GCSE grades, using the following points system:

 

Old GCSEs/IGSEs

Entry into Year 12 will require a minimum of 57 points from the top eight GCSEs. A minimum grade of 5 is required for English and Maths.

*IGCSEs and GCSEs that have not yet transferred to the new system are graded using the old A*-C scale
