Our Sixth Formers enjoy the best of all worlds: a supportive and dynamic academic environment, a friendly and caring school community, a wide range of sporting activities, and a beautiful campus in one of the UK's most vibrant cities.

The admissions process for 16+ starts in Year 11. Registration is recommended at least one year prior to entry, and you are warmly invited to attend one of our Open Mornings. We also host a Sixth Form Information Morning, which gives specific information for this entry point.

Please see the timeline below for more information. If you have any questions about admissions, please email Mr James Morrish.

We invite all those registered for a place in our Sixth Form to join us for an Assessment Day, which takes place in November prior to the year of entry. 

The first round of assessments will involve written papers in verbal reasoning, English, maths and a general paper assessing aptitudes in scientific reasoning, logic and writing. This will be followed with a second round of interviews the following week.

Stage 4 - Offer and welcome

Following the November Assessment Day, conditional offers are made in December. These offers are conditional upon GCSE grades achieved and released the following August.

Once you have formally accepted your place for Year 12, we will invite you to an induction afternoon. We will also send you your welcome pack, where you will learn about events planned to help you settle in quickly.
