For internal students, as part of the application process, meetings to discuss VI Form options will commence in January 2022.
External students will be offered a meeting with our VI Form team following references being received from their current school.
After the meeting, students will be offered a conditional offer based on their suitability for a place in VI Form. Although there is no minimum academic requirement for entry into the VI 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 VI Form, students will be expected to attend our VI Form Induction Day on Tuesday 12 July 2022. It will be an opportunity to learn something about the expectations of the VI Form and to find out more about individual subjects.
Enrolment for VI Form will be on GCSE Results Day, Thursday 18 August 2022. Staff will be available from 0900-1100 hours. This post-results meeting gives students the opportunity to discuss their results and agree final option choices however it may result in any conditional offer being withdrawn due to the advised entry requirements not being achieved.
All of the information above will be processed through the online application.
