We have many students who join us in the Sixth Form and we stipulate that students should be aiming to achieve a minimum of five GCSE passes at Grade 5 or above.
Students will be invited to present their most recent school report, their predicted grades at GCSE (at the end of the Autumn term) and may be asked to have an informal interview with the Headmaster.
NB All students need to be registered with the school in order to proceed with the entrance process.
