Course Entry Requirements
Application to Sixth Form is by application form which can be downloaded from our website or collected from reception staff at our Thomas Alleyne Academy site.
To study A Levels students will be expected to achieve a minimum of five C grades, or above at GCSE including English Language and Maths. In addition humanities subjects will require a B grade in GCSE English Language, whilst the majority of Science and Maths subjects will require B grades in both subjects at GCSE in order to continue to A Level. The Academy will also take into account average GCSE point score during the application process. Students will be expected to achieve an average point score of at least 40 to 43 dependent on subject choices to give the best chance of success at A Level, this is something students will be advised on during the application process. All applicants will be invited to a guidance meeting with our Head of Sixth Form to discuss their application prior to an offer being made.
In the case of existing year 11 students your lower school record for attendance, punctuality, behaviour and meeting deadlines will be taken into consideration during the application process. Students who do not have a good record for the above may not be allowed to continue in to Sixth Form.
