Sixth Form Admissions and Fees
AdmissionsAdmission to the Sixth Form is by interview and a minimum entry requirement of seven GCSEs at A*, A or B grade. A* or A grades are normally expected, in the subjects that will be studied at AS or A2.
Pupils join both from the senior school and around a quarter of our Sixth Form join us from other schools.
Prospective students are invited for an interview on the School's Sixth Form interview days in December. These interviews are academic but offer the opportunity to see if King's is the right place for your child and whether they are likely to achieve their potential here. It will cover the subjects a student wishes to apply for as well as offering an opportunity to discuss extra-curricular and career ambitions. The Head of Sixth Form, Deputy Head (Academic), Assistant Heads of Sixth Form or Headmaster conduct these interviews (with the Heads of Maths and Modern Languages also conducting subject specific interviews). Prospective students are required to submit their subject choices for A-level along with the most recent reports from their current school. A reference and predicted grades will be requested from the prospective student's school before a final decision is made whether a place should be offered.
