Sixth Form Admissions Criteria September 2020
Each pupil is expected to conform to the Code of Conduct as formulated by the Board of Governors. In addition a pupil must be prepared to adhere to all timetable and curriculum arrangements. This will include being involved and present at all classes, registration, assemblies and the college ceremonies.
It is important to ensure that pupils embarking on Sixth Form study have the right attitude as well as aptitude. Previous attitude to learning will play a very important part in the selection process. Where a pupil wishes to transfer from another school, GCSE results will be used as evidence of academic ability. The advice and opinion of the Principal and teachers of the previous school will also be taken into consideration.
Potential pupils to Sixth Form must have demonstrated a good level of attendance in Key Stage 4.
A pupil is expected to have a positive attitude towards behaviour, study and attendance. This will involve the signing of an agreement accepting the rules and standards set by the College and the obligations and responsibilities expected of them. This agreement includes a commitment to be present in the College for the whole of the College year as a full time student and refrain from going on holiday during term time. We will consider attendance, behaviour and commitment in Year 12 before accepting a student into Sixth Form.
Prospective Sixth Form pupils must have further demonstrated commitment to their studies in Year 12 eg. Completion of all coursework on time and positive and co-operative attitude to all members of staff.
Pupils who do not conform to the agreed rules and regulations set by the College will be required to seek their educational provision elsewhere.
