Admissions/ Course Guide

Message from our Head of Sixth Form: (COVID-19)

Dear student/Potential student,

Please find  information following the Department for Education’s announcements on Friday 20th March. In this letter I outline the implications the announcements may have for you and your sixth form and college applications.

Year 11 letter


The Sixth Form offer taster sessions for applicants for the subjects on offer as an opportunity to sample lessons in advance of enrolment. The taster sessions will be held from Monday 13th to Wednesday 15th July 2020. Letters will be sent to all applicants with the details of these in May 2020.

Students are strongly encouraged to attend all taster sessions in their chosen subjects as well as in any others in which they may be interested. Taster sessions provide an invaluable opportunity to experience the teaching and content of the subjects chosen as well as an insight into the demands of Sixth Form study.

If you require further information about applying or our taster sessions please contact the Sixth Form on 0115 9007215.


Please click the below link and complete the online application to apply:


The Sixth Form enrolment days will be on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st August 2020. In order to study at the Sixth Form, you must firstly submit an application form by using the link on this page. The application will be reviewed by a member of the Sixth Form Pastoral Team who may then invite you in for an interview. Following this you will receive notification as to whether or not you have been offered a place.

Applicants who are offered a place must enrol with us on either of the two days mentioned above. If you are unable to attend the enrolment days, please contact us in advance so that alternative arrangements may be made.
