Entry requirements

The standard entry requirement to Sixth Form is a minimum Level 6 average at GCSE/iGCSE.

A levels

Individual courses will stipulate a minimum requirement and some will expect at least a grade 6 and some a grade 7. Please download our Sixth Form curriculum where information on this is given under the subject heading. Where GCSE/IGCSE criteria are narrowly missed, we will consider individual cases on merit and may offer a degree of flexibility.


If you do not meet or are not expected to meet the Level 6 grade average, we offer a combination of a BTEC Level 3 Diploma plus an A level. You will need a minimum of four Level 4 grades at GCSE although, if you are considering doing a BTEC alongside an A level, you will need to meet the subject requirement for the A level course.

International students

For international students, or those who have not taken GCSE/IGCSE, offers are made based on an interview in person or by Skype, on school reports and on English and Maths tests.
