    Prospectus & How to Apply

     

    Course Guide and Prospectus 2019 will be available after the

    6th Form Open Evening on Nov 15th 

    - this event runs from 5.30 pm to 8pm

     

                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 will be required to take an induction test as well as meeting requirements in the Course Guide

    Further Maths is not in the Option Blocks as it is taught outside of the Blocks in an after school slot to allow as many students as possible to do it.


    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   lholmes@bishopramsey.school
