We aim to welcome students from all backgrounds, to support those with learning difficulties and disabilities to access the curriculum and to operate an equal opportunities policy.
The Sixth Form receives a number of applications each year. To ensure that growth does not take place at the expense of quality, the Governors have adopted the following admissions policy.
Every year we will assess our predicted number of applications against our required intake number of students, and applicants may be given a firm offer of a place, or may be placed on a reserve list. In some cases, we may feel there is no suitable course available for the applicant or the applicant will not benefit from our course and suggest applying elsewhere.
When deciding which form of offer to make an applicant, the Sixth Form will take into consideration:
- Academic entry requirements
- The extent to which the applicant demonstrates ambition
- The extent to which the applicant is likely to embrace the special culture of our Sixth Form
- The extent to which the applicant demonstrates the inclination to give as well as receive
Students who receive a low score within the categories listed above are more likely to be placed on the Sixth Form’s reserve list. Available places will be offered to students on the reserve list at the Headteacher’s discretion.
