Our aim is to provide inclusive educational opportunities for all those who choose to continue their education. There are opportunities to create individual programmes of courses at Level 3.
We believe that you should start courses at King Edward VI Sixth Form with at least a reasonable chance of success. The vast majority of our students will need to focus on successful completion of the equivalent of three courses across two years. Our conditions of entry are detailed below.
As a general rule, students will be guided towards following course combinations dependent upon their GCSE results.
Note: Some departments have higher individual subject requirements, established in the light of experience. These are shown in the course descriptions and we would strongly encourage you to use the teachers’ experience and advice when deliberating over subject choices.
We are moving towards new attainment measures in line with national changes. For Sixth Form entry we will focus on attainment rather than achievement (Progress 8). The entry requirement for a programme of three A Level/L3 courses in the Sixth Form will be an Attainment 8 average points score of at least 5.0(C).
