B. Entry Procedure into Year 12

All students entering the Sixth Form follow a two-year International Baccalaureate programme.

We require:

  1. A minimum grade 5 in English Language, English Literature and Mathematics
  2. A minimum average GCSE point score of 44 in their best 8 full GCSEs which must include English and Maths. (Point score is based on the new GCSE grades 9 to 1.)

In addition the following are requirements for specific subjects:

  • Individual Higher subject requirements: Grade 8 at GCSE to study Mathematics. Grade 6 to study English. Grade 7 to study Biology, Chemistry, Physics, French, German, Spanish, Italian; grade 6 for all other subjects.

The school determines which grades are required when a subject requested has not been taken at GCSE (eg. Economics, Business Management, Theatre Studies, etc).

C. Attendance and Punctuality

The Sixth Form is seen as a flagship for the school, leading by example in terms of attitude to learning, attendance and punctuality. The average attendance level in the school is 96.8% therefore the Sixth Form should be striving to achieve this and beyond.

D. Attitude to Learning

  • All Private Study sessions are to be used effectively and appropriately for independent study
  • In the absence of a member of staff, students are expected to complete work set in the timetabled room
