Full details of the A Level subjects that we offer and our entry requirements are available on our Curriculum page here.

Step 3: Attend an Options Meeting

After you submit your application form, you will be invited to attend an Options Meeting at the Sixth Form in January-March when you will have a one to one meeting with a member of staff to discuss your A Level subject choices. This is an informal process which is intended to help you make the right choices and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. We encourage parents/carers to accompany you.

Step 4: Receive an Offer and Find Out More

Following your Options Meeting, you will be offered a place which will usually be conditional on your exam results.

After you have received a conditional offer of a place, we will invite you to one of our Student Preview Events in late June or early July . The Student Preview Events last half a day and this summer they will take place in the mornings and afternoons on Friday 29th June and Thursday 5th July 2018. You will be given the option to select whichever date and time is most convenient for you. The Student Preview Events are a great opportunity to meet other new students and find out more about what to expect in the Sixth Form. Useful information is also available on our New Year 12 webpage.

Step 5: Confirm Your Place

On GCSE Results Day 2018, come along to the Sixth Form or contact us on 01200 423118 to let us know your results and confirm your subject choices.  Once again you will talk with experienced teaching staff who will confirm your enrolment and discuss any subject changes with you.
