How to apply

You will need to register your interest in the subjects you wish to study in Sixth Form between Thursday 7th November and Thursday 21st November by completing the Straw Poll.

This process will then enable us to maximise student choice and develop our subject columns around you, the student. Please note that this does NOT mean you have applied for a place in Sixth Form, it just provides the school with an indication of interest in each subject.

 

YOU WILL STILL NEED TO COMPLETE THE ONLINE APPLICATION FORM.

Option Blocks and Student Application Form go live on the school website on Monday 2nd December 2019 – Friday 10th January 2020.

These will take place in the week beginning Monday 3rd February 2020. External student interviews will be held after school on Wednesday 5th February 2020.
