Sixth form admissions
The school admits up to 50 new students to the Sixth Form each September. We welcome applications from ambitious students from the Birmingham area and beyond. Financial assistance may be available for students currently studying at schools in the north-west area of Birmingham. Parents of external candidates wishing to enrol a student into the Sixth Form should contact the school. It is not necessary for parents of existing pupils to apply formally for places in year 12.
To achieve entry into the Sixth Form in September 2021, prospective entrants (both existing pupils and external candidates) must achieve a minimum of seven GCSE passes at grades 9 – 5, including at least grades 6 in English and Mathematics.
In order to study a subject at A Level a student must have achieved at least a grade 7 at GCSE in most subjects, and a grade 6 in a handful of disciplines.
In order to study Further Mathematics, a student must have achieved at least a grade 8 in Mathematics at GCSE level.
Offers of places in the Sixth Form will be conditional on the achievement of these results and capacity on chosen courses.
Current students who do not meet the sixth form entry requirements are unlikely to be offered a place in the sixth form. They will, however, be placed in a pool with all new external applicants and these will be rank-ordered and places offered depending on availability.
In the event of over-subscription preference will be given to: “looked after or previously looked after children and children who are currently in receipt of Free School Meals (Pupil Premium) and then those who live nearest to the school (according to the straight-line distance between home and school)".
