Your sixth form application

If you know which course you want to apply for, you can complete one of our application forms. You can do this on paper or online.

What’s next?

After we have received your application, we will invite you into college for an interview. You may also need an audition or assessment, depending what course you have applied for.

You will then be given a conditional offer for a place on a course. If you accept your place we will keep in touch with you and will invite you to enrol on your course over the summer.

Why sixth form is different to school

A fresh start

Sometimes you just need a clean break to become the person you were destined to be. Starting sixth form is the perfect opportunity to break free and become that new person!

New people

Our diverse student community means that you will meet lots of new people of different ages, backgrounds and interests, so you can enjoy making lifelong friendships!

Specialist Staff

Most of our lecturers are industry savvy and are experts in teaching 16-18 year olds. They have lots of valuable experience and knowledge to pass onto you.

Independence

Sixth form is a more mature and relaxed environment than school and you are treated like an adult. You’ll be on first name terms with your lecturers so no more Sir and Miss! You can also start to make your own decisions.

Free time

Your timetable will be very different to school. You will have a lot more free time to take part in extra-curricular activities, study, or get extra money and work experience with a part-time job.

Different environment

Sixth form is a very different learning environment to school. You may even become more inspired and have a new motivation to work towards your future goal in a sixth form environment.

More choice

A sixth form can offer a much wider choice of A-Level subjects, plus vocational courses in lots of different subjects and at different levels.

More opportunities

You will have the opportunity to take part in lots of different activities outside of the classroom to boost your confidence and help you develop your skills and personal qualities.

Specialist facilities

A sixth form can invest in an extensive range of industry-standard facilities to give you the skills and knowledge to prepare for university or employment, and can also offer subjects that need specialist facilities.
