Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about the sixth form.


What happens after I've got my GCSE results?

You will be invited to Enrolment which will be from the 27th August to the 30th August. You will receive a letter over the summer with details. If you can't attend enrolment, then you must get in touch as this could jeopardise your place with us.


What happens if I don't achieve my predicted grades?

Once you receive your GCSE results you will attend your enrolment appointment and a member of staff will help you with your next steps. If you change your mind about a course, don't worry as you can discuss this at enrolment. If you haven't achieved the GCSE results you expected we will help you to find an alternative course.


What happens if I don't pass my English Language and Maths GCSE?
