Admissions Policy (Sixth Form)


The school will be consistent in the application of the published admission criteria and in the process of considering applications.  This is to ensure fairness to all applicants.

Students from other schools will be admitted provided they meet the entry requirements and there are spaces available. The maximum number of places available in Year 12 is 180.



In the event that our Sixth Form is over-subscribed by external applicants, please refer to our admissions policy for further details.
