Entry Requirements and Subject Criteria
Students will need to perform exceptionally in a wide range of subjects at GCSE and also be able to evidence high standards of behaviour, punctuality and attendance in Year 11.
Students must achieve a minimum of 5 grade 9-4 at GCSE including English and Mathematics, with a minimum of a grade 6 at GCSE in that subject or a closely related subject for most A Level courses (some subjects require grade 7 at GCSE). View the entrance and subject criteria document attached below for more detailed information.
All applications to Barnhill Sixth Form will be considered carefully and offers will only be made following a face to face meeting at Future Focus Evening and if pupils are likely to meet the entrance and subject criteria requirements.
Once you have completed your application we will write to you with further details of Future Focus Evening in February and March where a member of the Senior Leadership Team or Post-16 Team will meet with you to discuss your subject choices and application further. Students will receive offer letters in March.
