    Prospectus & How to Apply


    Prospectus 2018


                The Course Guide gives you information about the content of the courses we offer as well as the specific   GCSE grades and  requirements needed for acceptance on the course.

    Applicants for Biology, Chemistry and Physics will be required to take an induction test as well as meeting requirements in the Course Guide

    Applicants for PE will be required to take a physical aptitude test as well as meeting the requirements in the Course Guide.

    The On-line  Application form (see separate tab) shows the Option Blocks and should be completed as fully as possible. If there are any subjects which clash in the Blocks please note them.

    Further Maths is not in the Option Blocks as it is taught outside of the Blocks - please express your interest on the form where prompted.

    It is useful for us to know about any special exam arrangements which have been in place at GCSE if these are likely to be required again at A Level.     Please attach a note if necessary.

    Any queries should be addressed to Mrs L Holmes
