Senior School

Transition to the
Sixth Form

We are a forward-looking school. We are hard-working, and we aim at concrete outcomes for all our pupils, which is reflected by the high number that remain with us for Sixth Form.

Whether your child is moving from our Senior School or joining us from another UK school or overseas, we endeavour to ensure their experience is as seamless as possible, and they feel informed and equipped to manage life in the Sixth Form when they join us.

Taster days and induction days (in person or virtual for overseas pupils) form an important part of the transition process and support your child to feel at home from the moment they arrive.

Sixth Form Entry

We are a selective school based on academic ability and entry to our Sixth Form will normally be conditional on the achievement of a minimum of either:

  • Seven grade 6 GCSEs or three grade 7s and two grade 6 GCSEs
  • At least a 6 grade in the GCSE (or related) subject for each A Level
