Sixth Form Admissions 2019
We are still accepting external applications for admission to Sixth Form in September 2019. Admission to the Sixth Form is based on satisfactory GCSE results, with the addition of an informal interview for external candidates.
The minimum academic requirement for entry to Princethorpe Sixth Form is six GCSE grades at A*-C (9-5), including at least three grade Bs or equivalent. Under the new numerical grading system, that will equate to three ‘5’s and three ‘6’s. Candidates are normally expected to have at least grade B/6 in the subjects to be studied to A-level, however for Mathematics, Modern Foreign Languages, Latin and the Sciences a grade A/7 at GCSE is required.
If you wish to begin Economics or Law in Sixth Form, you will be expected to have achieved at least B/6 grades in both Mathematics and English Language. If you wish to study Computer Science at A-level, you must have taken it at GCSE. If you wish to study Psychology at A-level you will need a minimum of a 5 grade in English and Mathematics, plus a B/6 grade is highly recommended in a Science subject (ideally Biology).
If you are already at Princethorpe, the options procedure is explained to you through assemblies, meetings, tutorials and interviews.
If you are not yet at Princethorpe and are thinking of joining us, we would be delighted to welcome you. Please contact the Registrar, Vanessa Rooney on 10926 634201 or email email@example.com and she will talk you through the process initially.
If you then decide to join us for your Sixth Form studies, you should complete a registration form and select your options provisionally, as our own Year 11 pupils do.
Sixth Form offers and Scholarship offers will be made week commencing Monday 1 April 2019.
The deadline for acceptances of Sixth Form places and Scholarship offers is Wednesday 1 May 2019.
Then it is a question of working hard for your GCSEs and waiting until the results are published.
For more information on Sixth Form Admissions 2019 see our Information Booklet below.
For external candidates, once actual GCSE grades have been advised to the Registrar by telephone in August, a confirmed offer will be made.
Confirmation of acceptance from a parent with £300 deposit is then required to secure the place. This deposit is refunded after the end of the final term which the pupil spends at Princethorpe.
The Head and Assistant Heads of Sixth Form hold interviews following GCSE results day for any prospective Sixth Former who has concerns about his or her choice of subjects.
If you have any questions relating to the admissions process or scholarships please contact the Registrar, Mrs Vanessa Rooney on 01926 634201 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
