How to Apply
St Wilfrid’s has a highly successful, academic and caring Sixth Form with an excellent reputation for successfully preparing students for university and employment. We are exceptionally proud of all that our Sixth Form students achieve and we welcome applications from our current Year 11 St Wilfrid’s students and external candidates.
Application for the Sixth Form is made via an online application form and applications can be submitted from November 2019.
Sixth Form interviews with a member of staff as part of the Sixth Form application process will commence in February 2020 for St Wilfrid’s students.
External candidates need to submit an online application form and references will then be taken up with their current school. Once satisfactory references have been received, candidates will be offered an interview with our Director of Sixth Form.
After the interview students will be offered a conditional offer based on their suitability for a place in Sixth Form. Although there is no minimum academic requirement for entry into the Sixth Form, each subject area does have an advised entry requirement. There are some Level 3 BTEC subjects available.
Following the conditional offer of a place in Sixth Form, students will be expected to attend our Sixth Form Induction Day. It will be an opportunity to learn something about the expectations of the Sixth Form and to find out more about individual subjects.
Enrolment for Sixth Form will be on GCSE Results Day, Thursday 20 August 2020. Staff will be available from 9.00-11.ooam. This post-results interview gives students the opportunity to discuss their results and agree final option choices.
