Waldegrave Sixth Form is a co-educational provision for 280 students aged 16-19. 

Our core philosophy is to ensure our students enjoy a love of learning, achieve beyond their expectations, and feel empowered to become the leaders of, and contributors to, a better society.

We have now completed a £7 million new building programme which has provided a state of the art sixth form block with library, study base, the latest IT and digital resources, specialist laboratories, a Sports England approved sports hall and a discreet sixth form cafe.  These facilities have been further improved with the addition of a new performing arts block with specialist facilities for Music, Music Technology, Dance and Drama.

When will interviews take place?

Advice and Guidance interviews will take place between November 2016 and February 2017.  Conditional Offers, or other advice, will be communicated at interview. Conditional Offers have to be accepted or declined by 24 March 2017.

 

I've been given a Conditional Offer - does that mean I am guaranteed a place at Waldegrave Sixth Form?

We cannot guarantee a student a place a Waldegrave Sixth Form until we know what grades they have achieved and if there is space on the course. You must always apply to at least 3 college or school sixth forms and hold those places open until you have completed Enrolment on GCSE Results day. 

It is likely that we will be oversubscribed again this year.  If this is the case we will implement our Oversubscription Criteria (please see download on this page)

 

What happens on Enrolment Day?

Enrolment Day will take place on GCSE Results day – Thursday 24 August 2017.  Applicants will have been sent an Enrolment Pack which contains important documents and the time to attend for their enrolment interview according to our Oversubscription Criteria.  

We strongly suggest that you attend your Enrolment interview in person with a parent or carer and do not book holidays over this period.
