Transition arrangements

Admission to the Sixth Form is by application form.  You may obtain an application form by downloading from the sixth form website or by contacting 6th Form Administration on Ext 256.

The offer of a place in the 6th form is determined by the Average Point Score (APS) of your GCSE Predicted Grades. This summer Year 11 students will be awards a 9-1 grade for their English and Maths GCSE and an A*-G grade in their other subjects.

  • To study an A Level programme you will need to be predicted over 4.5 Average Points and to achieve a minimum of a Grade 6 in the subjects applied for
  • For a BTEC programme you need to be predicted over 3.83 Average Points
  • If your prediction is below 3.83 average points you should be applying for college alongside Sixth Form

How to work out your Average Point Score (APS):

Add together all the points for your grades (remember Double Science counts as two GCSEs) on the basis of GCSE, and then divide by the number of subjects taken. (Remember that GCSE Short Course RS and PE count as half a GCSE).

A*-C Grade 9-1 Grade Points
                   9 9.00
A*                    8.50
                   8 8.00
A 7 7.00
                   6 6.00
B                    5.50
                   5 5.00
C 4 4.00
D 3 3.00
E 2 2.00
F                    1.50
G 1 1.00


Examples:

Student 1: Eng. Lang 8, Eng. Lit. 7, Maths 8, Chemistry A, Physics A, Biology A, Art A, French A, RS A, & History A* The total points for the ten subjects are: 8.00 + 7.00 + 8.00 + 7.00 + 7.00 + 7.00 + 7.00 + 7.00 + 7.00 + 8.50 = 73.5 ÷10 = 7.35 APS

Student 2: Eng. Lang 6, Eng. Lit. 6, Maths 6, Core Science B, Additional Science B, Graphics B, Geography C, Drama B, Art C, and RS Short Course B. The total points for the ten subjects are:  6.00 + 6.00 + 6.00 + 5.50 + 5.50 + 5.50 + 4.00 + 5.50 + 4.00 + 2.75 = 50.75 ÷ 9½ = 5.34 APS

Student 3: Eng. Lang 4, Eng. Lit. 4, Maths 4, Core Science C, Additional Science C, History D, Resistant Materials B, Media C, PE C, and RS Short Course C. The total points for the ten subjects are: 4.00 + 4.00 + 4.00 + 4.00 + 4.00 + 3.00 + 5.50 + 4.00 + 4.00 + 2.00 = 38.5 ÷ 9½ = 4.05 APS

 

We will not start you on a course of study where you do not have a good chance of success.

Your behaviour and attitude in Year 11 will also be taken into account when considering your application to join the sixth form.  We welcome almost all of our students back because they have worked to deadlines, behaved well and will be good role models for younger students. If you do not have such a reputation, your application is unlikely to be successful.

It is now a requirement for any student remaining in full time education beyond 16 years old who has not achieved a 4 grade pass in English and/or Maths to retake these examinations. In these circumstances support will be provided to retake exams.
