Sixth Form - Sixth Form Admissions
Sixth Form Admissions
We welcome applications from all students who meet the entry requirements whether they are currently attending Sandy Secondary School or from other institutions. For A level courses the entry requirements are six GCSEs at grade 4 or above including English and Maths, although individual courses may have different requirements (please refer to the course information for specific details).
We would encourage you to attend our Sixth Form Open Evening or arrange to visit the school and to speak to member of the Sixth Form team to help you make your choice of subject. We offer both A levels and BTEC level 3 courses in various combinations. We would expect that you will choose a minimum of three A levels or their equivalent, with an option for a fourth subject for some students. We will encourage you to choose one of our enrichment subjects as well such as EPQ or Duke of Edinburgh award to help broaden the suite of qualifications that you will study.
Because all of our courses run for the full two years we have a settling in period to allow you to be sure that the subjects you have chosen are the right ones for you. During this period you will be able to change to a different equivalent course.
