Applications for Year 12 September 2022
Thank you for your interest in our sixth form. This page contains important information to help you with your application. Please start by clicking on the link below to view our prospectus that provides some important general information about our school including the importance of being a faith community and details of our scholarship programme.
Please click here for further details about our admissions procedures.
Below, you can view the subject option blocks and entry requirements for our courses next year. Most students study 3 courses although in a small number of cases, some students may study 2 or 4. It is only possible to study 1 course from each option block (A,B,C and D) as the subjects in each block are timetabled together. Please look at the option blocks and entry criteria carefully before completing an online application. Whilst it is possible to change options later, it is sensible to take time to carefully consider your choices now.
At the bottom of this page, you will find links to short presentations about some of the courses that may further assist you in making your decision.
Applications have now closed and we will update this website with more information regarding the process for late applications once GCSE results have been released.
