SIXTH FORM PROSPECTUS

Admission to Sixth Form from September 2018 

The Published Admission Number (PAN) for Year 12 in September 2018 is 30 (in addition to those students already in Year 11); this means we anticipate our total number of students for the year group being 155. 

There is no entrance exam to join the Colyton Grammar School Sixth Form, but external applicants need to fill in an online application form.  Applications must be made directly to Colyton Grammar School.

The admissions process for routine admission into Year 12 in 2018/19 begins in September 2017.  Applications must be made to Colyton Grammar School and NOT to the Local Authority.  The online application process will be made available from September 2017 and parents/students should expect to receive an acknowledgement of their application.

Deadline for receipt of applications
The closing date for applications is 31 January 2018.

Entry Requirements into the Sixth Form
The minimum entry requirements are the same for both internal and external applicants.  Applicants are required to achieve a minimum of 50 points from the best eight GCSEs (or equivalent), including at least grade 5 at GCSE in English and Maths or a DfE recognised equivalency.  Two exceptions to this are that grade 7 is required for studying Mathematics and grade 8 for Further Mathematics; and for a student who wishes to study Chemistry, Biology or Physics they will require grade 7 in the relevant subject if they have studied a single science GCSE or grade 7 in both Science and Additional Science.  For all other subjects, it is expected that students will achieve a minimum of a grade 6 in the subjects they have chosen for A-Level.

Colyton Grammar School enjoys a national reputation for the academic standards achieved in the Sixth Form.  

Students benefit from high quality teaching and an excellent support programme aimed at helping them to achieve their potential.

Two purpose-built Study Centres provide an excellent environment for private study.

Ofsted Inspectors judged the Sixth Form to be an “impressive feature of the school” and they praised the range of extra-curricular activities available and the opportunities for Sixth Formers to contribute to the life of the school.

The relationship between Sixth Form students and staff is very much one of purposeful partnership.
