Learning Together For The Future

Admissions to Sixth Form

The Planned Admissions Number for candidates admitted to the VI Form of The Ecclesbourne School each academic year varies depending on the number of Year 11 we think will stay on.

Entry requirements for the Sixth Form are as follows:

  1. The course required is available.
  2. Space is available in the subject groups at the selected examination level.
  3. The candidate meets the course requirements of the particular course. Basic entry requirements for AS Level are a minimum of 5 specified grades at GCSE with a further requirement in individual subjects. Details are given in the VI Form Prospectus issued annually.

All candidates who meet criteria a-c inclusive (above) will be invited to a meeting with the VI Form co-ordinators to discuss their chosen course options.

Sixth Form students at The Ecclesbourne School are leaders of the School community. Successful applicants will be expected to exhibit excellent behaviour, to be punctual and have high levels of attendance.

In the event of over-subscription of candidates meeting the general and specific requirements for entry to particular VI Form courses, any surplus places after allocation to transferring internal pupils from Year 11 will be allocated to external pupils by using the oversubscription criteria for Year 7 set out here.

Waiting Lists:

Applications from parents whose children have not been accepted into The Ecclesbourne School who wish to be placed on a waiting list must indicate in writing between 1st September and 30th September annually if they wish their names to remain on the list. Waiting lists will be kept for Years 7-11.

Waiting lists will be set up in the order of the published over-subscription criteria.
