Sixth Form Admissions in September 2019

There are over 600 students in our Sixth Form, all of whom study A Levels. We welcome students from the Ribble Valley, Longridge, Preston, Blackburn, Accrington, Burnley, Nelson, Colne, Barnoldswick and beyond. The school is served by public transport from a large number of areas and financial aid may be available via the 16-19 Bursary depending upon parental circumstances.

For Sixth Form entry, there is no catchment area and no entrance examination. To be able to join the Sixth Form you must meet the General Entry Requirement of a minimum of 4 GCSEs at grade 6 with at least GCSE grade 4 in English Language and Maths. In addition, some A Level subjects have their own, specific entry requirements. These are shown in the Subject Information Sheets available at our Open Evening and on our Curriculum page.

Our online application form is available in the Step by Step Guide below. If you have any questions about applying to join the Sixth Form, please call 01200 423118 or email sixthformadmissions@crgs.org.uk and we will be happy to advise you.

Please read our Sixth Form Guide and Entry Requirements for further details.

We are always happy to arrange individual visits to the Sixth Form for students and their parents or carers.

A Step-by-Step Guide to Joining our Outstanding Sixth Form in September 2019

Step 1: Visit our Sixth Form

Please come to our Additional Sixth Form Open Evening on Thursday 6th December from 4.30 – 5.30 p.m. If you wish to attend, please email sixthformadmissions@crgs.org.uk or call 01200 423118. Students are welcome to come by themselves or with their parents/carers.

Step 2: Apply

Our online application form is available here. The closing date is Friday 11th January 2019.

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 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

After 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. Follow the link in your email invitation to book yourself onto 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 (Thursday 22nd August 2019), 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.

We look forward to receiving your application. If you have any questions about admissions please do not hesitate to contact us at sixthformadmissions@crgs.org.uk.
