What are the entrance requirements?

Waldegrave is non-selective however there are national minimum GCSE grades required to study A Levels. On your application you will be asked for your predicted grades. These are used for guidance only as we recognise many applicants improve their grades between mock exams and public exams.   Applicants will be accepted onto courses following the results of the GCSEs received in August.  

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.
