What are the entrance requirements?

You will be asked to choose three subjects that you think you would like to study at A Level. No firm decision needs to be made until Enrolment Day in August and confirmation of your place will depend on availability of courses on the day.
For more information on the subjects we offer please view Sixth Form Subjects webpage.
If you have not sat GCSEs or iGCSEs you will need to provide a Statement of Compatibility.
