External applicants for Sixth Form entry are asked to sit papers in the subjects that they propose to study at A Level or Pre-U. Where an applicant intends to study a subject not previously taken (e.g. Politics, History of Art, Philosophy, Psychology), question papers provide candidates with an opportunity to show their aptitude for the subject concerned.
Applicants are interviewed by Heads of Faculty and have a personal interview with the Headmistress or Head of Sixth Form. For entry in Autumn 2019, an offer of a place is conditional upon a candidate achieving a minimum of 59 points in nine GCSE/(I)GCSE subjects.
The following scale will be used:
A* = 8 points
A = 7 points
B = 6 points
C = 5 points
D = 4 points
9 = 8 points
8 = 8 points
7 = 7 points
6 = 6 points
5 = 5 points
4 = 4 points
3 = 3 points
Practical Music examinations (ABRSM) obtained at Grade 7 (Pass) or above will be considered equivalent to an A grade at IGCSE/GCSE, as will a Pass or better in the PCertLAM (LAMDA).
The Admissions Guide for entry in September 2019 offers a general overview of the application process and contains fee information for 2018-2019 on its final page.
