Admission Criteria

Our admission criteria is as follows:

  • Students intending to follow a route of three A Levels will need to achieve at least 42 points across their best eight subjects, including at least grade 5 in English Language and Maths.  Beyond that, most subjects carry additional criteria to ensure suitability for study; please see the course requirements here
  • Students who wish to study four or more A Levels will need to have at least six GCSE subjects graded 7 or higher.
  • The School uses the current DfE Key Stage 4 qualification points when making decisions.  For example most BTECs will be scored: Distinction=8.5 points, Merit=5.5 points, Pass=4 points.

Please note that Year 12 students are recommended to have achieved at least two D grades at the end of Year 12 to ensure their best chance of success at the end of Year 13.
