Great to see so many parents here for our Year 10 Information Evening https://t.co/bgnvgYcPIp

Applications 2020

Applications for September 2020

Students who wish to apply to Waldegrave Sixth Form for entry in Septemer 2020 will apply through ULAS.

START APPLICATION TO ULAS

This is a new programme and we have compiled a 'How to Guide' to make the process easier.  Please click HERE

You may also find the following documents helpful:

Y12 OVERSUBSCRIPTION CRITERIA  The Oversubscription Criteria has changed for 2020 entry.

A LEVEL ENTRY REQUIREMENTS 

The application process will open on the following dates:

Thursday 19 September - current Waldegrave students

Monday 7 October - all external applicants

Deadline:

Friday 10 Janaury 2020 by 23:59.  We are unable to accept any late applications.

We will hold three applicant interview dates.  These will take the form of an Information and Guidance meeting and will take place in November 2019, January and March 2020. Applicants will be invited to one of these days and must attend with a  parent/carer and bring their latest Grade marks.

I only have Y10 predicted grades, not Y11 and I think I have done better.  Will this affect my application?

No. 

You need to input your predicted grades into the application.  This information is verified by your school and is used to give you relevant advice and guidance at your interview.  We are aware that some of you may not have received your Y11 mock results by the time you apply and this will be taken into account.  We ask that all candidates bring their latest results to their interview.

Am I in the catchment area?

For the Sixth Form, there is no 'catchment area' such as you may be used to when you applied for Year 7.  This is because there are a number of factors involved in determining whether an applicant is successful in gaining a place:


1. Meeting the minimum academic entry requirements     There are standard minimum grades needed to study A Levels, please see the Entrance Requirements for more information.  If you think you will not meet these grades you may wish to consider a BTEC Level 3.

2.  Distance from the school to your home.  Please read Criteria 4 of the Oversubscription criteria to determine where you fall in this category.

3.  Availability on the courses you wish to study.  We try to plan according to the data we receive from applicants to accommodate as many students as possible in the subjects they wish to study, but this is not always possible.  Therefore a student who lives close to the school may not gain a place as the courses they choose are full, and yet a student who lives some distance away does gain a place as the subjects they choose have availability when they arrive for the enrolment interview in August.

As a guide:

For entry September 2018 the furthest male came from 5.7 miles away and the furthest external female student came from 5.8 miles away. The route is by road not as the crow flies.

For entry September 2019 the furthest male came from 4.07 miles away and the furthest external female student came from 3.8 miles away. The route is by road not as the crow flies.   

All Waldegrave girls who met the entry requirements and who wished to study in the Sixth form gained a place.

This will change year on year depending on the applicants. We cannot guarantee a place.  Please click here for the Oversubscription Criteria.

I have applied, what happens next?

Advice and Guidance interviews will take place between November 2019 and March 2020.

How will I receive communications?

You will receive communications via ULAS to the email address you supplied in your application.  Please make sure you use one that you monitor regularly. You may prefer to use your parent's.

When will I find out if I have got a Conditional place?

All offers must be accepted or declined by 23:59hrs Sunday 19 April 2020 via ULAS only.   You will be sent an offer with the conditions explained.

What if my application is declined?

If your application is declined that means that we are not able to offer you a place.  In most cases this will be because your school reference indicates that you are not yet ready for A Level study. We are a comprehensive school and are not selective however we do set our minimum entry requirement inline with the national benchmark.  Please see the Entrance Requirements.

As well as sending a decline message through ULAS we will usually inform your school and make suggestions as to your next steps.

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. This will take place on GCSE Results day – Thursday 20 August 2020.  

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 

What happens on Enrolment Day?

Enrolment Day will take place on GCSE Results day – Thursday 20 August 2020.  Applicants must download an Enrolment Pack which contains important documents and the time to attend for their enrolment interview according to our Oversubscription Criteria.  You will be notified when the pack is ready.

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